Friday’s After Five – STILL FREE!

Fridays After Five, presented by Bud Light, continues to be Charlottesville’s favorite live concert series. 2015 will be the 28th year of free live music and fun.  The first event will kick off at the nTelos Wireless Pavilion on April 17th and will run each Friday thereafter ending on September 11. Each week volunteers work the concessions on behalf of a variety of local non-profits who share in the proceeds, which raises tens of thousands of dollars to support their work in our community. The spring and summer schedule features local artists of myriad musical styles; there is something for everyone! Unwind Friday evenings at this fabulous and FREE Charlottesville institution.

25th Annual PCSB

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

To open their 43rd Season, Four County Players is proud to present its summer musical,THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE.

An eclectic group of six tweens vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the kids spell their way through a series of words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Featuring a wonderful score by William Finn, SPELLING BEE will keep you laughing and humming along!

Running Weekends starting July 24th through August 9th!
On the Mainstage. Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm and Sunday afternoons at 2:30pm.
