Yorktown Theatre’s Dramatic Play Reading: Marvelous — at 2 pm on December 16 at Gunston Arts Center
Come to a play reading performed by Yorktown Theatre in collaboration with WSC Avant Bard, complete with sound and light effects. WSC Avant Bard has been working with the Theatre III students for several weeks to prepare for this performance. The playwright, Matt Minnicino will be attending the reading and will be looking for your feedback immediately following the performance.

Next performance of Voices out of Chaos at Yorktown: January 19
In late October, the Yorktown Theatre III & IV classes performed Voices Out of Chaos, an original play developed by the students in response to current events.  The show follows a young girl’s journey as she attempts to make sense of the chaos created by the barrage of daily headlines. The students will take the show to the Virginia High School League (VHSL) One Act play competition on January 20.  Be sure to attend the preview show on January 19!
