Raleigh Playhouse and Theatre announces upcoming shows

Raleigh Playhouse and Theatre will feature “534,” which is four different acts all set in New York City, which is coincidentally 534 miles away from the theatre location in Beckley at 403 Neville St.

Tickets are general admission and cost $20 per seat. Performances will be held Jan. 11 and 12 at 8 p.m., Jan. 13 at 4 p.m., Jan. 17, 18, and 19 at 8 p.m., Jan. 20 at 4 p.m., and Jan. 24, 25, and 26 at 9 p.m.

The four acts include “The Girl Who Loved The Beatles” by D.B. Gilles, which is the story of a man who finds himself in the shambles of his advertising agency and a woman searching for happiness and a way out of her dismal life.

“The Problem” by A.R. Gurney Jr. is the second act about a middle aged married couple who find themselves in the midst of a predicament, but the show takes the audience on an unexpected journey.

The third act, “DMV Tyrant,” by Christopher Durang, follows a man as he has an ill fated trip to the Division of Motor Vehicles.

“Bachelor Holiday” by Alan Ball, the final act, is about three bachelors in New York City who are very different from one another. The show follows their daily antics and does have some adult language.

Raleigh Playhouse is also offering a season pass for $110, which includes a ticket to every show during the season during any show time. This season will include “Doubt” by John Patrick Shanley, “The Champagne Charlie Stakes” by Bruce Graham, “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” by Alan Ball, “Proof” by David Aubrun, “Sorry, Wrong Number” by Lucille Fletcher, and a holiday show that will be announced at a later date.

For more information or to purchase tickets, call 304-763-7059 from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
