Buckhannon Community Theatre


Buckhannon Community Theatre takes you back in time: It’s the tail end of the big, bad 80s in Hollywood, California and the party has been raging hard; but for some, it seems like it may be the end of the line. Aquanet, Spandex, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, The Bourbon Room; a place where sex-machine and rock god, Stacee Jaxx, takes the stage while scantily clad groupies line up to turn their rock and roll fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner), Drew Boley, longs to take the stage as the next big thing. Suddenly into Drew's life comes a smalltown girl with Hollywood stars in her eyes, Sherri Christian, fresh of the bus from Kansas. But the rock and roll fairy-tale is on the verge of ending when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Sunset Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the strip and themselves before it's too late? Only the music of epic arena rock bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and more hold the answer.


Playing Thursday - Saturday, July 26th, 27th, and 28th from 7:00 to 9:30 pm and Sunday, July 29th from 2:00 to 4:30 pm at the Virginia Thomas Law Center for Performing Arts on West Virginia Wesleyan College's campus in Buckhannon.

From Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the creators who gave us Dear Edwina and Dear Edwina Jr., Buckhannon Community Theatre presents Junie B. Jones The Musical Jr.; brought to life in a delightful adapatation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books in a production created specifically for Broadway Junior performers. Join Junie B. on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store for our pint-sized heroine: Junie B.'s best friend Lucille has found new best friends, leaving poor Junie B. out in the cold. In the meantime, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. In Mr. Scary's class, Junie B. has trouble reading the blackboard and discovers she may need glasses! With a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament, and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal", first grade has never been more exciting!

This endearing show features many lovable characters and several catchy, fun-filled songs. Junie B. Jones Jr. will capture your heart.  

 Playing Thursday through Saturday, August 2nd, 3rd, and 4th from 7 - 9 pm, and Sunday, August 5th from 2 -4 pm at Virginia Thomas Law Performing Arts Center on West Virginia Wesleyan College's campus in Buckhannon.
