Hanover County Students Discount Program

All students enrolled in Hanover’s middle and high schools, and all home or privately schooled students ages 12 to 18 living in Hanover County, can purchase their tickets to any performance at the Hanover Tavern for only $9.

The program is funded by proceeds received from the annual presentation of Virginia Rep's Hanover Hero Award.

Barksdale Theatre, founded in 1953, has been Hanover County’s proudest contribution to the cultural life of Central Virginia. Founders, Pete and Nancy Kilgore and Muriel McAuley, worked for 40 years to create a nonprofit professional theatre that felt like home to everyone in Hanover County, particularly students. Barksdale Theatre merged with Theatre IV in 2012 to become Virginia Rep, and we are proud to reaffirm our commitment to Hanover’s younger citizens.
