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.
The play Dear Elizabeth is drawn from one of the greatest correspondences in literary history between two of the 20th century’s most brilliant American poets, Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. Sarah Ruhl adapts more than 400 published letters spanning decades, continents and political eras, tells the tale of an unconventional friendship and intimacy both platonic and romantic, and brings it all to life on the stage. This moving, innovative play starts in 1947, ends in 1977 and describes a love that resists easy definition.

The March 26, 27 and 28th performances of Dear Elizabeth feature:
