Theatre and Cinema at Virginia Tech

↑ top Theatre and Cinema Schedule
The Theatre and Cinema Program is inventing the future of American theatre at Virginia Tech by producing contemporary plays and new visions of the classics to discover how our performances connect with and stimulate people in the New River Valley. Two ticketed main stage shows with multiple performances and a number of free workshop productions are produced each semester creating shared theatrical experiences for the entire community. The cinema program offers many cinema-related activities that unspool year-round, including visiting artists and special screenings to the student-run Progeny Film Festival.

Music at Virginia Tech

The Music Program in the School of Performing Arts produces the Visiting Artist Series, the Ensemble Performance Series, and Special Events throughout the year. In addition, the Music on Mondays series highlights faculty and guest artists and are free and open to the public.

Artists Registry

↑ top The Artists Registry is a program within the School of Performing Arts and Cinema (initiated and funded by the Provost Office) that was established in 1990 to accomplish two objectives, both related to the service mission of the University and as enhancement to University student recruitment and University image in the Commonwealth:

1. to facilitate individuals or groups (both within and outside the
University) in obtaining the services of appropriate Virginia Tech
(and local) artists, performers, or performance ensembles to
present or perform at events they are sponsoring; and,

2. to provide quality artists, performers, and performance ensembles
from the University (and surrounding community) to approved
University offices for purposes of image enhancement, student
recruitment and the like.

All inquiries should be directed to Jane Harrison, Manager, Artists Registry at
