Virginia's Lil' Ole Opry Kicks Off 2017 Season

"Virginia's Lil' Ole Opry" will open its 2017 season on Saturday with limited performances again this year. It's the show's 42nd year but its second season without its home venue of Donk's Theater.

The historic family-operated theater in Mathews County was destroyed during a storm last January that brought snow, ice and heavy winds to the region. The roof on the 70-year-old theater buckled and took out three walls. It had to be demolished several days later.

"Last year after Donk's Theater collapsed, our community and friends were so generous and supportive. We have been overwhelmed with their kindness and this year, we wanted to do something to give back and say thanks," said Lynda Smith Greve, a spokeswoman for the opry.

Ticket prices for the season have been lowered to $12 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. "We hope more people will be able to come and enjoy our shows," Greve said.
