A Civil War Christmas, a collection of stories linked by a pageant of carols, is coming to Tysons’ 1st Stage Theater (1524 Spring Hill Rd) starting next week.
The play, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, follows several intertwining lives on Christmas Eve in 1864 from Northern Virginia battlefields to the White House.
A Civil War Christmas will run from Nov. 29 through Dec. 23. Showtimes are:
- Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
- Fridays at 8 p.m.
- Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
- Sundays at 2 p.m.
General admission tickets are $29. Tickets for seniors (65+) are $36. Student and military tickets are $15.
Captioned performances will be held the weekend of Dec. 6-9. An audio description will be available at the Dec. 8 performance.
1st Stage Theater also offers community conversations after several shows, giving audience members a chance to talk with the designers, cast, and cast about the show’s production and creative process. Prior to the Dec. 20 show, Sarah Jencks, Director of Education and Interpretation at Ford’s Theatre, will talk about the historical context of the show.
1st Stage Theater bills itself Tysons’ only stage theater venue. It was founded in 2008 in a converted office space.
A Civil War Christmas is the second production of the 1st Stage Theater’s 2018-2019 season.
