Open House 2019

August 18, 2019

Noon – 7PM
FREE

Kick off the 30th Anniversary season with Signature’s annual Free Open House. Starting at noon, come enjoy performances every 15 minutes, master classes, family cabarets, season preview concerts, games and crafts all followed by the grand Broadway on the Plaza finale concert.

Special this year: there will be a free performance of Assassins after the Open House at 7:30PM, and tickets will be available through an independently run lottery system. You must attend the Open House to enter the lottery. More information about claiming free tickets for that evening’s show will be available at the event on August 18.

Winners will be announced in the late afternoon. All winners must be present in Shirlington to accept free tickets.
