Roanoke, VA – Jefferson Center’s Shaftman Performance Hall has been selected as the location for “An Evening With George Takei: On Diversity and Inclusion,” which will be sponsored by the City of Roanoke and hosted by Local Colors of Western Virginia on Wednesday, May 4.
Tickets for An Evening with George Takei are no longer available. All seats have been reserved, and we appreciate your interest in this event. Due to an unusually high level of interest in the event, callers may have encountered a busy signal or extended hold times this morning while our box office staff reserved tickets to other callers. Jefferson Center's box office staff handled the calls in the order they were received, with only 2 tickets allotted per individual. We are sorry for those individuals who were unable to reserve tickets, but the call volume was considerable, and seats were designated first-come first-served. If you were unable to reserve a seat, we can add your name to a waiting list.

A standby line will be permitted, and all unclaimed tickets will be distributed after 6:15 p.m on the night of the event. There will be no late seating.
