Ferrum Colleges Announces New Blue Ridge Performing Arts Series
The College continues the tradition of providing quality, family entertainment to the region.
Ferrum, Va. – Ferrum College announced today that it will continue the tradition of providing quality, family entertainment to the region with the new Blue Ridge Performing Arts Series. The 2013 Series begins this summer in partnership with the Virginia Commission for the Arts. A variety of talented, professional performers are booked throughout the next year with the first event, a performance by Larnell Starkey and the Spiritual Seven, slated for June 15, 2013.
In the storied tradition of the Blue Ridge Dinner Theatre (BRDT), food, fellowship, and education will be featured in the College’s new performing arts venture. The BRDT, which made its home at the College for more than 30 years, closed its doors at the end of the 2012 season when its founders Rex Stephenson and Jody Brown retired.
“We look forward to greeting our loyal Blue Ridge Dinner Theatre audience members this summer and to welcoming newcomers to the inaugural season of the Blue Ridge Performing Arts Series at Ferrum College,” said Ferrum College President Jennifer Braaten.
Former BRDT volunteers are also invited to return this year. “As a non-profit community outreach program, Blue Ridge Performing Arts Series will welcome community volunteers to help implement the performances. Volunteers were part of the heartbeat of the BRDT and we invite them to return to support the new Series,” said Series Coordinator Brooke Gill.
