Performance Schedule

Belhaven Theatre is offering its 18th year of productions with a season that celebrates classic stories familiar to and beloved by all.  Our Fall begins with These Shining LIves, followed by Ezekiel and White Christmas. The Spring begins with The Skin of Our Teeth, and closes with the classic musical, The Secret Garden.

We are, once again, excited to see a fantastic group of guest designers and guest artists collaborate on our productions this year!  Please join us this season as we celebrate the Lord through the talents of our wonderful student-artists! I will see you at the theatre!

We hope that you will join us at the theatre!

These Shining Lives
These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance.

General admission $10; seniors/students $5; complimentary admission for Belhaven students, faculty, staff and their immediate families. Doors open thirty minutes prior to each performance.

White Christmas
Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs.

With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former Army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love a Piano, How Deep is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas.
