Lancaster Grand Theatre announces 2014-15 season

LANCASTER — The Lancaster Grand Theatre’s 2014-15 season offers a “sparkling array of nationally and internationally-known popular entertainers,” said Debra Hoskins its executive director.

The restored historic venue at 117 Lexington St. in Lancaster is no more than 30 minutes from Richmond or Berea, Hoskins said. “We’re always happy to have our Madison County neighbors visit us,” she said.

Last year the Lancaster Grand opened its doors after being closed for 50 years and undergoing a $4.2 million restoration.

All performances for the upcoming season are available for either an “Everything Series,” which includes 15-percent discount, or a “Select Seven Series,” which includes a 10-percent discount. Single tickets may also be purchased anytime. All options allow subscribers complete flexibility when selecting season tickets subscriptions and allow for early seat selections.

The season includes:
