As the deadly plague known as the ‘Red Death’ rages outside the towering stone walls, Prince Prospero and the social elite of his time hide away from the rest of the world and await the passing of the plague by reveling in wine, debauchery, and haunting tales of terror & woe. Featuring some of Poe’s well-known stories, this menagerie of frightful yarns weave together a story of greed, selfishness, and elitism as they hide away from a world rocked by a inescapable death.Blue Ridge Community Theater proudly offers a new Theater Experience that we are so excited to announce to our Patrons: Black Box Theater. They have created a more intimate environment to offer their patrons seeking a serious theater experience in a small immersive setting. With an emphasis on writing and acting, they will bring you shows that are not only critically acclaimed and award-winning, but also provide challenges for the actors seeking more complex and ‘meatier’ shows than the comedies they typically present on the Main Stage. Seating is currently limited and shows only run for three performances, so we strongly encourage buying tickets in advance.
