SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - June 26, 2017 - PRLog -- This overnight tour will give you a unique experience of new American theater, produced and performed on a very high level. You'll stay at the Four Diamond Award Bavarian Inn on a bluff overlooking the Potomac River, a short walk from the theaters, in charming Shepherdstown, West Virginia.

Here's what you get:

Day 1. Arrive at the Bavarian Inn for welcome and lunch with a prominent CATF staff member. You'll see sketches and set designs for the play on your tour. You'll also get a private backstage tour of the sets before your first 2:30 performance. After the play, you'll have time for yourself and dinner on your own. We'll meet again for the second play at 8 p.m., followed by discussion with members of the cast. You'll return to the Bavarian Inn for the night.

Day 2. You'll start the day with a breakfast with Festival Founder Ed Herendeen at 10 a.m., followed by the third play at 12 noon. We'll return to the Bavarian Inn for tea and snack to talk about our experiences and say our farewells.

Plays in this sampler tour package in order of viewing are "Byhalia, Mississippi" by Evan Linder, "We Will Not Be Silent" by David Meyers, and "Wild Horses" by Allison Gregory.

This tour creates wonderful new experiences amidst lively ideas and talented artists in a charming historic town. I think you'll enjoy it!
