Mission Statement

Theatre IV is a not-for-profit, professional theatre.
I. Theatre IV is dedicated to the creation of professional, exciting, and innovative theatrical productions of the highest national caliber, and to the presentation of these productions in Richmond, Virginia, and on tour throughout the nation.
II. Theatre IV is committed to exploring and expanding the ways in which the theatre arts can impact positively on education. Our plays for young audiences complement the teaching of existing curricula across all grade levels and subject areas. We are guided by the twin beliefs that the arts are fundamental to education, and that education is a life-long activity.
III. Theatre IV is committed to exploring and expanding the ways in which theatre arts can impact positively on human services. Our prevention programs work comprehensively with existing human service initiatives to address the most challenging issues faced by today's children and adolescents.
IV. Theatre IV is committed to exploring and expanding the ways in which the performing arts can enhance and enrich our sense of community. Our Board of Trustees, staff and artistic family are representative of the community-at-large. We create and implement programs and initiatives in response to community input. Many of our educational plays explore and celebrate diverse cultures. With financial support, we price our programs and initiatives so as to be accessible to all individuals and schools, including the less advantaged. We tour, bringing programs and initiatives to traditionally under-served audiences.
Theatre achieves its goals by building partnerships with students, parents, familie, schools, performance facilities, businesses and corportations, other nonprofit organizations, governments, and communities-at-large.


Theatre IV was incorporated in May 1975 as a touring theatre company for young audiences. At that time, no other professional theatre in Virginia existed dedicated to serving the children, parents, and educators of our state. Since our founding, Theatre IV has grown to become Virginia's largest professional theatre, and the nation's second largest theatre for young audiences. We offer youth the very best in educational, innovative children's theatre.
