John McCutcheon
Folksinger, storyteller, songwriter, hammer dulcimer master -- John McCutcheon's award-winning, best selling music has been delighting audiences for some twenty years. His family concerts have been called "little feats of magic" by the Washington Post. While playing a multitude of instruments -- guitar, banjo, fiddle, autoharp, hammer dulcimer, and piano -- McCutcheon weaves tales as modern fables, rich in history and universal in scope.
Page Middle School, Gloucester
Theatre IV
December 20 (Saturday)
A Christmas Carol
The classic Dickens tale comes to life in this new version written especially for Theatre IV of Richmond. Mr. Scrooge learns his proverbial lesson from the spirits of the Past, Present, and Future amidst an exciting musical score by Broadway composers Jule Styne and Bob Merrill. Theatre IV has recently joined forces with ArtReach of Cincinnati, Ohio, to bring you the best professional theater available for young audiences.

Alice Through the Opera Glass

This comic program by Virginia Opera includes music from such masters as Mozart, Humperdinck, Rossini, and others, while emphasizing musical storytelling and enduring theater.
