Performance À La Carte

Performance À La Carte allows you to customize an event for your group that works with your schedule.

About the Hylton Center

The Hylton Performing Arts Center is an award-winning venue in Manassas, Prince William County, Virginia. Our performance season includes everything from national and international touring acts like the Vienna Boys Choir, Clint Black, and the Reduced Shakespeare Company to the Moscow Festival Ballet, and the Shanghai Acrobats. The Hylton Center is also the performing home for many regional artists. However, if our performance offerings do not match your schedule, contact us for a Performance La Carte.

Choose Your Program

Performance choices range from multiple styles of music to small theater pieces and feature artists from George Mason University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts or local and regional artists selected by the Hylton Center. Another program option includes a lecture about a requested topic featuring George Mason University professors or local experts from the Washington, D.C. area. We would love to work with you to customize your group’s experience at the Hylton Center.

  • Musical theater or jazz concert
