Theatre VCU has worked toward two goals: to help create a new generation of theater artists, and to ensure the tanks on their applause-powered generators stay full. Young performers along with costume, scenic, and lighting designers, and stage managers hone their crafts and nurture their talents. And, they manage to create some pretty terrific art that has become a great community resource for entertainment.
