Virginia Rep has announced the upcoming shows for the 2015-16 season. Since they’re doing this a month earlier this year, major castings are not finalized yet (with one exception below). Also, Cadence won’t be announcing their shows for about 3 weeks. One other tidbit: longtime Richmond illustrator Bill Nelson is back from Manteo and will be creating the illustrations for the Hanover Tavern season (which he did many years ago).
