Virginia Stage Company is the region's only fully professional resident theatre company, serving an audience of more than 80,000 yearly. Founded in 1968, VSC's mission is to develop and sustain a fully professional theatre serving Southeastern Virginia that enriches the region and the field through the production of theatrical art of the highest quality. As a non-profit cultural institution, VSC is an artistically driven theatre rather than a commercial venture. Contributions from government agencies, corporations, foundations and individuals enable VSC to keep ticket prices affordable for all citizens of the Hampton Roads community while sustaining the highest artistic integrity.

Virginia Stage Company provides a variety of services and programs to our community, including American Sign Language performances and infrared hearing devices for patrons with hearing difficulties. Virginia Stage Company's Education Department provides matinee performances of mainstage productions as well as touring productions to over 30,000 Hampton Roads students annually. VSC also participates as a Partner in Education with several schools by providing services such as performances, drama classes, production training and workshops to Title One schools and others at no charge.

Virginia Stage Company has achieved a national reputation as one of the country's foremost regional theatres, attracting leading theatre artists to the Wells Theatre stage. The Tony Award-winning musical, The Secret Garden, began its life at VSC in December 1989. Our award-winning directors, designers and actors work in other leading theatres across the country as well as on Broadway, off-Broadway and in film and television. VSC also employs professional artisans, technicians and administrators who conceive, design, rehearse and build each production specifically for the audience in Norfolk. These theatre professionals come to Hampton Roads from all over the country, and become vital members of our community while working at VSC.

In the years since its founding, Virginia Stage Company has made significant contributions to the quality of life in Hampton Roads: presenting more than 125 plays through more than 2500 performances; revitalizing and renovating the historic Wells Theatre not only for VSC's use but for the benefit of many other cultural organizations; providing educational programs for students of all ages; and preserving the legacy of live theatre for future generations.
