About Us


As the professional summer theatre hosted at the University of Virginia since 1974, the Heritage Theatre Festival is now the Virginia Theatre Festival. For over 45 years, our theatre has presented an annual summer festival of musicals, classic works, and new plays for our local Charlottesville, Albemarle, and UVA communities.

Our 2022 season aims to bring together our deep and meaningful past as the UVA professional summer theatre together with our vision for the future. A future where our doors are open to all community members and our work serves as an example to our patrons and our industry of how live theatre can both be presented ethically and inclusively and serve as a catalyst for important conversations and change.

Ways to Give

The Virginia Theatre Festival relies on the generous support of our community to sustain live, professional theatre in the heart of Charlottesville. Your contribution to the VTF fund is the most impactful and direct way to support the art and artists that enliven and inspire audiences every summer.
