Heritage Theatre Festival 2020 Season Postponed To 2021

Following Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s stay at home order and the subsequent cancellation of summer programing at UVA, Heritage Theatre Festival is postponing our 2020 season until 2021.  We are committed to protecting and promoting the safety and health of our patrons and our company members.

We look forward to sharing GUYS AND DOLLS, THE BOOK CLUB PLAY, BLITHE SPIRIT, and HOLD THESE TRUTHS with you in the summer of 2021 (pending renegotiation of rights for all of these titles).

We send our very best wishes for your continued safety and we encourage you to continue to find hope and joy in art, wherever and however you may encounter it.


Welcome to the Heritage Theatre Fesitval. Since 1974, we have been in residence during the summer months as the University of Virginia’s professional summer theatre. Leading directors, designers, technicians, and actors from across the country form the company each year to produce a season of musicals and plays.

Thank you to our 2019 Sustaining and Season Sponsors
