Two of the academic performances are also asking audience members to bring in various donations. Twelfth Night is asking for canned food items, salad dressing, sugar, and healthy breakfast cereals for Lynchburg Daily Bread. If patrons donate five or more food items the Liberty Theatre Arts Department is offering a $3 discount on ticket purchases. Meet Me In St. Louis is also asking that audience members bring in either shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child with money to cover shipping costs, or to just offer financial donations for 15 students who are traveling with Operation Christmas Child’s discipleship program.

The theater department also offers audience members the opportunity to have a Q&A session with directors, designers, and actors from each show without any extra cost to the ticket, or requirement to have attended the performance. They also offer some performances that are interpreted into American Sign Language.

The Q&A sessions for each show are on the following dates:

  • Twelfth Night: Nov. 6
  • Meet Me In St. Louis: Dec. 11
  • Brigadoon: Feb. 26
  • Steel Magnolias: April 1
  • Beauty and the Beast: May 12
  • Henry V: May 30

The ASL interpreted performances are on the following dates:
