A Slideshow of Past Performances
In accordance with Governor Northam’s recent announcement regarding the lifting of COVID-related restrictions in Virginia, the Colonial Center will re-open its Box Office and facilities to the public on Tuesday, June 1, at 8:30 a.m. All remaining 2021 Colonial Center performance events will proceed as scheduled at that time. However, the schedule is subject to change should the Governor’s guidelines be updated prior to an event taking place. It is highly recommended that all event attendees wear masks, and that all eligible individuals be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to attending a Colonial Center event.
