After a one year sabbatical, The Homecoming will be on stage once again this fall at The Hamner Theater in The Rockfish Valley Community Center. The production is based on Earl Hamner’s life in the mountains of Nelson County near Schuyler set in the early 1930’s.

Auditions for the production that inspired the highly popular ’70’s show The Waltons begin this Sunday September 20 from 3-6 PM and again the following day on September 21st at 5-7PM at The Hamner Theater.

“I feel so gratified because I still have so many friends there. It’s a feeling of coming home, always being home again,” says Earl Hamner from his California office. The theater was named in his honor. Earl turned 86 years old this past July and has personally visited the theater in recent years since its opening.
