Live Arts is Charlottesville, Virginia’s cutting-edge community theatre. We have developed an unlikely blend of professional standards, high production values, and bold, modern work with a commitment to amateur actors.

Since 1990, our company has fostered the creation of more than 90 works, ranging from new interpretations of classics to avante garde performance art. Regional media has called us "a theatrical company that takes your breath away" and "the region’s boldest, most innovative theatre company."

The staff works side by side with volunteers to produce a full mainstage season, extensive education programs, and smaller experimental works in our LA.B space. Call or visit their website for a schedule and ticket information.
