VCT has put together a world-class show on every level. To miss this one would be- dare we say?- a grave mistake.

Virginia Children’s Theatre describes itself as professional theater for children. That’s apt, but too modest. It’s more like professional theater for everyone.
-Jeff DeBell, the Roanoke Times
[The VCT] team has created a welcoming venue for professional and aspiring actors alike to put their skills, techniques, gifts and talents to work! The professional AND fun environment found at VCT also makes it a great place to learn the skills and techniques of theater for kids of all ages. Love having this theater for our community to enjoy!
