News and Events


Season Opener! Performances of Next Fall by Geoffrey Nauffts - This contemporary drama is a unique, bold and surprising theatrical offering which was presented on Broadway in 2010 and nominated for two Tony awards - for Best Play and Best Director. It is the story of Adam and Luke, a couple very much in love yet polarized by divergent religious beliefs: Luke is a devout born-again Christian while Adam is a devoted atheist. Parents and friends who cross their paths each have a strong individual religious conviction of their own. All are pulled into a challenge that none of them wanted by a tragic incident that makes them examine their lives and beliefs. Of a play that takes a provocative look at gay relationships and religious convictions, Ben Brantley of the New York Times writes: "[Next Fall] considers how the need to believe in something beyond other people tests relationships - among lovers, friends and family members."

The play contains adult themes and language and is not recommended for children. Performances are October 17, 18, 19 at 7:30 pm and October 20 at 2:30 pm in Trayer Theatre in the Anne Worrell Fine Arts Center on the VI campus. General Admission tickets on sale at the door are $12 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and $5 for students.

THEATRE INTERNSHIPS! Two Virginia Intermont Theatre majors utilized                                                                          their skills and expanded their experience this summer through internships with professional theatre companies. Jenna McClelland-Nease, a 2013 graduate with a B.F.A. in Theatre Arts, worked as a make-up and hairstyling intern for Bard Summerscape Theatre in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. Aaron Bradley, a rising senior B.F.A. Theatre Arts candidate, worked as a sound design intern at Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia. Jenna has served as make-up and hair designer for many VI shows including "The Tempest", "Blithe Spirit" and "Sweet Charity". Aaron has designed sound for "Sweet Charity" and "Night of the Living Dead" for which he received an award from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Both Jenna and Aaron benefited greatly from these opportunities for intense hands-on experience in a professional setting offered by these outstanding theatres.


VI Theatre Students Study in London - In a special study tour of London, United Kingdom, VIC Theatre students had the opportunity to enhance their theatrical training in one of the world's most significant and exciting theatrical centers. The program included workshops at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre as well as tours of Royal Theatre Drury Lane, London's Theatre History Walk, and the Victoria and Albert Museum Theatre Collections. Students also attended performances at the West End and London Pub Theatres' Fringe Festival. Exposure to these outstanding productions plus instruction from some of the world's finest practicing professionals provided VIC's young theatre artists with a most valuable experience to add to their educational repertoire. The trip also resulted in some interesting photos. (To view click "read more")
