Trillium Performing Arts Has Great September Happenings

Trillium Performing Arts Has Great September Happenings

Trillium Performing Arts Collective continues the celebration of thirty years of lively arts in the Greenbrier Valley with several September events. Trillium, the company-in-residence at the Lewis Theatre in historic downtown Lewisburg, is a community based nonprofit that celebrates and collaborates in the creation of original performance work that embraces dance, music, theatre and film.

Beginning September 4, the Trillium School for Performing Arts launches a new season with classes in creative movement, contemporary dance, boys’ contemporary, ballet, jazz/hip hop, improvisation, poi spinning, Qigong/tai chi, and yoga. Classes meet once a week at either the Lewis stage or the dance studio at Carnegie Hall. Eight instructors include cofounders Carli Mareneck and Beth White, with additional returning teachers Samara Michaelson and Cari Cohen. New this year are Kathryn Ullom, Allison Coleman and Lynn Benedict. Registration is still open for all classes. Trillium’s guiding principles are to recognize and encourage the artist within each person in a supportive, noncompetitive atmosphere. Students from age three through senior adults are welcome.

The Lewis Theatre will be vibrating in September with a weekend of percussion workshops Sept 21-23, led by Mark Davis, a wonderful musician and teacher from Charleston, WV. Classes include body sounds and experience with a multitude of instruments from around the world. People can register for one activity or the entire weekend. No experience is necessary. The Friday Night Alive! showcase of local talent at 8 PM on Sept. 21 includes a performance by the guest artist and some of the friday workshop participants. FNA! tickets are just $6 adult; $3 for full time students.

Hollywood in the Hills is a fun filled faux formal fundraising affair at 8 PM on Saturday, Sept.8, celebrating local folks who can buy all their votes to win ‘Lewie’ awards in such whimsical categories as favorite facial hair, dancer, and MVP. Voting takes place on-line and at The Irish Pub, Wild Bean, Greenbrier Baking Co. the Sweet Shoppe and Del Sol until Sept. 7. Votes cost 25 cents each, and tickets to the affair are $25. A special encore of the performances for the Generation Greenbrier Valley Dancing with The Stars event will add to the fun of this fabulous affair. There is also a buffet and open bar included. Come in creative costumes, there are special prizes for famous person look alikes. This fabulous fundraiser is sponsored by North Central Distributors.

Trillium collaborates with ALL Arts LLC to preserve and enhance the historic 1939 Lewis Theatre, a founding member of the WV Historic Theatre Trail. Recent upgrades include a stage, dressing area, stadium seating, deco painting, theatrical lighting and sound, thanks to continued generous support from community residents and businesses, visitors and friends worldwide, foundations, Greenbrier County and the State of WV.

Information, registration and tickets for any of these activities is online at or at 115 N Court St., Lewisburg 304-645-3003
LB Spy readers are encouraged to sign up online or at the ticket window for Trillium and Lewis Theatre schedule updates.
