Jefferson Center is celebrating the arts renaissance in Virginia's Blue Ridge and we are proud to do it with your support for your community theater, Shaftman Performance Hall. Jefferson Center plays an integral role as a home to great performances and we are excited to share our 2012-2013 season with you.


Jefferson Center's new season continues to build upon the stellar reputation of diverse, accessible, world class art that has been built over the last 11 years inside Shaftman Performance Hall. This season's Star City, Jazz, Family and Jazz Club series features world renowned artists from all genres including Rosanne Cash, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Acoustic Africa, Esperanza Spalding, Branford Marsalis, the Travelin' McCourys and so many more.


In eleven short years, Jefferson Center has produced, pushed, and prodded great live art into Southwest Virginia. We feature amazing nights that rival what's available anywhere in the world and you can share them with 900 of your closest friends in an intimate, historic venue.


With season tickets starting at just $30 and individual shows available for as low as $5, there is a seat and a series for everyone! New this year, choose your specific seats online. With our new online ticketing platform, you decide what the "best available seat" is for the shows you want!


Thanks to you the ticket buyer and supporter, our model remains sustainable as we are given support consistent with our impact.  And we strive to do more every day. 


Thank you and enjoy the shows!

Executive Director
