5 by O. Henry Plays

August 11, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Our 31st season of 5 by O. Henry is in August this year. The show runs August 11 – 20, with evening shows on August 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, and matinees on August 13, 19, 20. Tickets go on sale by Tuesday, July 25.

The playbill features The Venturers, While the Auto Waits, A Lickpenny Lover, A Ramble in Aphasia, and A Cosmopolite in a Cafe. Our favorite playwright Joe Hoesl has adapted the work of Greensboro’s own short story author, O. Henry (aka William Sidney Porter), into delightful stage adaptations. But that’s not all! Artistic Director Barbara Britton, whose list of successful local shows is too long to list, has gathered the cast and is guiding and inspiring wonderful performances. Put pianist Michael Greene up front, have a few singers and the audience join in, and you’re guaranteed a delightful theater experience.

Tickets, including ticket fees and sales tax, are $15.33 for museum members, $17.53 for Seniors 65+/Students, and $18.63 for General Admission. Buy at your convenience, 24 hours a day/7 days a week at http://5byohenry.brownpapertickets.com or 800.838.3006.

Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door prior to curtain.
Please note that tickets will not be available in the Museum Shop this season.
