ABOUT US

Live Arts is a volunteer theater that has given a home to drama, dance, comedy, music and performance art since 1990. We strive to present high-caliber work unlike anything you’d expect to find in the area. We look to surprise, to delight, to astonish, to move the public, and above all, through live performing arts, forge a deep and lasting bond with our community of volunteers, our community of audience members, our community of Charlottesville and beyond.

OUR MISSION

The mission of Live Arts: Forging Theater and Community

The Live Arts mission statement describes a process, not an end. We forge with passion, melding the disparate raw materials of theater and community. We change and grow together, shaping both a theater and community. We know of no better way to deepen our understanding of ourselves and the human condition.

Who we are:  Artists, audiences, volunteers, benefactors, students, businesses, organizations, neighbors (for a start).

What we do:  Theater, dance, music, circus, puppetry, spoken word, improv.

Our tools and goals:  Passion, participation, risk, rigor, connection.
