NORFOLK — Virginia Stage Company will be partnering with OUTwire757, LGBT Life Center and HRBOR for “Fun Home Night Out” — an evening of art and stories honoring queer narratives.

On Jan. 25 all are welcome to attend a pre-show mixer at the Wells Theatre featuring Happy Hour drinks and gallery display “My Family” — a photo project produced by the LGBT Life Center, according to a news release.

Pre-show festivities will begin at 6 p.m. and the party continues after the show with OUTwire757’s monthly Out in the Open Story Slam in the Tazewell Lounge.

Enjoy a cash bar, free eats, and share your very own “Fun Home” stories on stage.

“Fun Home” begins on Jan. 23 with an official opening night on Jan. 26, and performances through Feb. 10.

The show follows the journey of Alison Bechdel’s iconic graphic novel as it comes to life in this Tony Award-winning musical.

Bechdel recounts the mysteries of her childhood with her father in the family funeral home in a journey of self-discovery.
