JRT to host Valentine’s Day event

From STAFF REPORTS

You can grab your lover, friend, spouse, significant other, or come solo, and celebrate Valentine’s weekend with an outdoor showcase by the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre. 

Bundle up and join the fun at the International Storytelling Plaza on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 3, 5 and 7 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 14 at 3 and 5 p .m. 

“We want to provide a fun celebration of the season for our community,” said JRT artistic director Jennifer Bernhardt. “I think it’s really important for love to be at the forefront of our focus. Not just romantic love, but to show love and kindness to everyone.” 

Cast members will perform both romantic and not-so-romantic songs from shows the theatre plans to open later this year. Details will be announced at the event. There will also be a collection bin for non-perishable foods for the Jonesborough Food Pantry, a donation jar for the JRT, and concessions will be sold.

“A Little Romance” is in conjunction with the Chocolate Fest in downtown Jonesborough, so dress warmly, wear your mask, and participate in the Valentine’s fun. You may bring a chair or just find a place to stand (please socially distance) to enjoy the JRT entertainment.
