Your Support Matters

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.
