Theatre W.Va. to return for 54th season, plans 17 performances of 'Hatfields and McCoys'


BECKLEY, West Virginia — Theatre West Virginia is preparing to return for its 54th season following a shutdown caused by financial problems.

The Register-Herald ( ) reports that Theatre West Virginia has scheduled 17 performances of "Hatfields and McCoys" this season, beginning July 11.

In past seasons, the outdoor theater company performed both "Hatfields and McCoys" and another historical drama, "Honey in the Rock" at Cliffside Amphitheatre at Grandview Park. The company also performed Broadway productions and productions aimed at children.

Theatre West Virginia ceased operations in September 2013. This year, the Legislature allocated $125,000 for the theater. Organizers hope to raise another $325,000.
