September Events at the Matthews

September 1, 2021


Happy September! The cooler weather is already starting to set in! Are you ready for Fall? We are!

We are starting the new month with our Bellman Brown Bag Series featuring the winning works of our 2021 Writing Contest. 

After that, it’s time for an annual favorite Theater on the Run. We have about 8 tickets left for our main Saturday productions, and we have added a special matinee production called Theater on the Run: REPLAY. This one-day-only show will take place entirely in the Matthews Opera House theatre and the ticket price includes free appetizers and a drink.

Finally, our Subscription Series kicks off at the beginning of October with Magician Jason Hudy! This will be a fun event for the whole family so don’t miss it. 
Jason will be closely followed by Royal Wood, a Canadian Singer-Songwriter whose songs have been heard on high-profile sync placements like “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Private Practice.”

By the way, single event tickets for our Subscription Series open up September 1st, but you can still save some money and buy a season ticket before October 1st.
