Based on the award-winning book of the same name, Matilda tells the story of a bright young girl, who decides to right-the-wrongs in her world by using her wit and cleverness. Teaming up with her school chums, Matilda takes on Miss Trunchbull, the evil headmistress of the school, and in the process discovers just how powerful believing in yourself can be. Full of high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, this musical has won over 47 international awards, with critics raving that it is â€œbrilliantâ€ and â€œmagic and just not for the kids.â€ Playing to packed houses around the world, weâ€™re proud to present it as our final musical of the 2020 season!
Lees-McRae Summer Theatre is committed to producing quality theatre experiences. We serve audiences who view our productions, students who are training in their craft, and we serve the High Country community as collaborators for the betterment of our area

Summertime in the mountains â€“ what better way to see the countryside than on a two-day Studio Tour! And to see the best Ashe County artists working in their own studios!
Tour participants will discover art studios located all over the county â€“ in and around West Jefferson, Jefferson, Crumpler, Laurel Springs, Todd, Creston, Warrensville, and Lansing. Most of the studios are not usually open to the public, so this is a rare opportunity for people to see where these artists work and at select locations, to watch them as they create their art. And it doesnâ€™t hurt that getting there takes you through some of the most beautiful mountain countryside the High Country has to offer!

(OUR SATURDAY KIDS THEATER SERIES) Remember the tale of the fisherman who catches an enchanted fish and uses his three wishes to try to bring happiness to his wife? This delightful adaptation taps into the magic of audience participation. Here kids in the audience become scenery, sound effects, and even walk-on parts. As the fish grants the fisherman's wife's spiraling wishes, the audience creates sea and storms, goes fishing, and becomes chickens and ducks in the farmyard. A creel full of fun for the whole family.
