Church Youth Groups Invited to Visit, Perform in the Birthplace of a Nation
On July 10, church youth groups can travel back in time for a special price and enjoy engaging educational programs in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area. This 18th-century capital of Virginia saw the birthplace of a nation more than 200 years ago.
Youth choirs, dancers, musicians and church schools and their families receive a special admission pass price of $7.50 per person for groups of 15 or more, plus the opportunity to perform in the 18th-century capital of Virginia. Youth group participants enjoy special guided tours with hands-on activities.
At the end of the day, Colonial Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre will host a special Youth Variety Show. Members of the church groups must have a valid admission ticket in order to participate and groups must sign up in advance. A CD or DVD of the group’s performance must be provided by July 1. There is no charge to the general public to attend the Youth Variety Show.

Located in Williamsburg’s Merchants Square, the beautifully restored Kimball Theatre presents films, live performances, musical concerts and special programs. Creative programming alliances with the College of William and Mary, community organizations and Colonial Williamsburg link the past with the present. The 410-seat theater also houses a 35-seat screening room which enables the theater to offer films to the community seven days a week, even when live performances are staged in the main theater. For more information, call (757) 565-8588.
Established in 1926, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is the not-for-profit educational and cultural institution that preserves and operates the restored 18th-century Revolutionary capital of Virginia.
