Why you should go “Behind-the-Scenes”
Your Behind-the-Scenes Experience
It’s our goal to provide an informational, fun, completely captivating experience that will enhance the first-class performance you will be attending. Here’s our standard agenda:
David Timberline has been involved in the performing arts in Richmond for more than 30 years.
