Welcome to the Vienna Theatre Company (VTC) website. VTC is the resident non-profit performing arts company in Vienna, VA. We are located at the Vienna Community Center. VTC brings residents of Vienna, as well as the surrounding Northern Virginia/D.C. metropolitan area, the opportunity to participate in theatre as audience members or as volunteers onstage and backstage.
The Vienna Theatre Company has been touched by the Black Lives Matter movement. We have been inspired to intensify our efforts to be a vibrant diverse company dedicated to fine entertainment. VTC welcomes people of all races, backgrounds and experiences. This belief extends to all of our decision making including outreach, play selection, leadership, directing, casting, and all phases of our operations. In short, ALL ARE WELCOME and will be treated with dignity and respect.
In lieu of our usual fall production schedule, cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Vienna theatre Company proudly presents In Living Sound from Oct 23 – Oct 31, two weekends only! Come enjoy episodes from 3 American classic radio series of different genres: lighthearted comedy, detective and sci fi drama all replete with live sound effects and the occasional funny hat. As a gift to our patrons, we offer free of charge shows in two performance formats to accommodate these unusual times. Please join us!
Featured shows are from the following series: X Minus One, Gunsmoke and Sam Spade:
X Minus One – Mars is Heaven (May 8, 1955)
It’s 1987 and humanity
has finally landed on Mars. But Mars is not what the explorers were
expecting, and it was very familiar.
Gunsmoke – Chester’s Dilemma (January 31, 1960)
humorous celebration of human nature, set soon after the arrival of the
railroad in the wild frontier town, Dodge City, Kansas, during the settlement
of the American West.
Sam Spade – The Blood Money Caper (September 29, 1946)
…the first episode
of the hard-boiled detective series based on the character created by American
writer Dashiell Hammett in his 1930 novel, The Maltese Falcon
Two performance formats are offered to accommodate these unusual times.
