You may recall hearing about a significant gift by the Cecil and Irene Hylton Foundation in support of the Hylton Center Arts Alliance. The gift was designed to help alleviate some of the financial hardship that Alliance members experienced due to canceled performances during the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the Arts Alliance are the Hylton Center founding Arts Partners, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring them back to our stages and to support the arts in our community. Get ready for a dazzling comeback starting in October by Hylton Center Arts Partners Prince William Little Theatre, Manassas Chorale, Manassas Ballet Theatre, and the Manassas Symphony Orchestra.
Revel in the suspenseful mystery of Prince William Little Theatre’s Dial “M” for Murder (10/8 – 10/17), followed by Manassas Chorale’s The Roaring Twenties—Then and Now (10/9) in a celebration of tunes from the 1920s. For classic horror fans, Manassas Ballet Theatre’s (MBT) seductive production of Dracula (10/15 – 10/17) transports you to Transylvania after dark, complete with live musical accompaniment by the Kim Reynolds Band. Lastly, the Manassas Symphony Orchestra’s Back to the Classics (10/23) celebrates Beethoven’s 250thanniversary year, with acclaimed violinist, Emil Chudnovsky performing Beethoven's extraordinary Violin Concerto in D major.
