PSST! Offers Early Bird Memberships Through Feb. 15
VALDOSTA — Early bird memberships are now available for the 2015 Peach State Summer Theatre season and can be purchased online by visiting the box office link at www.valdosta.edu/psst through Sunday, Feb. 15.
The cost is $67.20 for adults and $63.99 for students and senior citizens, including taxes and fees. Each season membership includes three admissions to be redeemed as the member desires with advance reservations.
Individual admission is $31.28 for adults and $25.93 for students and senior citizens, including taxes and fees.
The 2015 Peach State Summer Theatre season will run from June 5 through July 19 and features “Les Misérables,” “Always … Patsy Cline,” and Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.”
Peach State Summer Theatre, or PSST!, is Valdosta’s premiere professional summer stock theatre. Each summer, dozens of singers, dancers, technicians, managers, and creators gather on the campus of Valdosta State University for 10 weeks, and during that time, they rehearse, build, and present three musicals in rotating repertory. This year, however, things will be a little different, as the 15-performance run of “Les Misérables” will end before the 13-performance run of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” begins.
The 2014 Peach State Summer Theatre season marks the 26th year of VSU producing professional theatre for the city of Valdosta, the state of Georgia, and beyond. From 1990 to 2004, VSU produced the Jekyll Island Musical Theatre Festival. In 2005, the summer theatre program was relocated to the university and renamed PSST!
The Georgia Legislature designated Valdosta State’s summer stock theatre program the Official Musical Theatre of the State of Georgia.
VSU’s Jacque Wheeler serves as the artistic director of Peach State Summer Theatre. H. Duke Guthrie is the managing director.
