Arlington’s Signature Theatre opens its doors for its annual Open House on Sunday, August 18 for an all-day extravaganza full of live performances and arts events across six different stages.
Free and open to the public, this special summer event runs from noon until 7 p.m., with numerous performances throughout the Signature complex starting every fifteen minutes, as well as a one-day-only discounted ticket sale at the Box Office for select performances of main stage shows in Signature’s 2019/20 season.
The Open House offers something for everyone: live performances, dance classes, master class demonstrations, a Broadway on the Plaza grand finale, and much more. Events are held throughout the building as well as outdoors on the Shirlington Plaza, where families will find balloon animals, popcorn, snow cones, skee-ball, basketball, a cornhole tournament and more — all for free.
Inside, the Season Highlights Concert will feature exclusive sneak-peek performances from Signature’s upcoming 2019/20 season including performances from Assassins, A Chorus Line, Gun & Powder, Camille Claudel, and Hair.
During the Open House, patrons can also access discounts for select performances throughout the season, and for the first time ever, Open House is offering an exclusive lottery to win free tickets to a performance of Sondheim’s Assassins that evening.
This free and family-friendly event is always a fun day for the community to experience live performances, demonstrations, master classes and the magic of theatre!
