Help Plan Our Future

Strategic Plan

Virginia Rep needs YOU to participate in the creation of our Strategic Plan.

The Plan is updated every five years, and the new plan will take effect January 2015. We’re conducting focus groups to seek input from all interested parties regarding our future. Each focus group will be directed toward a particular constituency, but anyone and everyone who has interest in professional theatre in Central Virginia is invited to attend the focus group that best matches their schedule.

Focus groups are led by Virginia Rep staff. In the fall, the Virginia Rep Board of Directors will use the input obtained during the focus groups to plan for the company’s future.

Remainaing Focus groups take place on the following schedule, but you can attend on any date that best suits your schedule.

Leaders of Colleague Theatres – Mon July 21 5 – 7:00 pm – Willow Lawn
Signature Season Single Ticket Buyers – Tues July 22 7 – 8:30 pm – Virginia Rep Center
