About Us

Mission Statement: Spectrum Theatre exists to engage and challenge the University and Charlottesville communities through provocative, socially relevant, universal, inspiring, and innovative performance with artistic excellence and professionalism. The organization holds an uncompromising ideal of pursuing, with artistic passion, the full spectrum of the human experience.

That’s a lot of fancy words.  In a nutshell, Spectrum Theatre is a student-run theatre organization at the University of Virginia. Students, as well as members of the Charlottesville community (include UVA staff and faculty members), have been a part of Spectrum Theatre’s productions and we welcome all members of the UVA and Charlottesville community to be a part of our productions! We have put on well-known shows such as The Arabian Nights, Avenue Q, and The Fantasticks as well as annual productions of The Vagina Monologues and the student-written show Voices of the Class (based on first year admissions essays!).  We work hard to put on great shows, but we also love to have fun, and want YOU to join us! To get email updates on the happenings of our organization, subscribe to our listserv at this link.

Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.

    are you the folks putting on the dr. horrible one-night show at the Bella Rose Theatre? Are the proceeds going to charity? If so, I would like to help out with a promotional idea.

      We have already performed Dr. Horrible at UVA just for fun in April. The one night shows sounds like a lot of fun, though! Best of luck.

    Are you putting on The Vagina Monologues on the 12th, 13th and 14th?

      So sorry about the extremely late reply! Unfortunately, when The Vagina Monologues was showing, it was no longer a Spectrum Theatre production. Check back for updates on our upcoming shows though!
