Plan Your Visit

You're invited to the 2019 Heritage Theatre Festival's summer season!  Heritage takes place in the heart of beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia and is hosted by the University of Virginia in the Drama Building on UVA Arts Grounds. We've created a brief guide below to help you plan your Heritage experience. We hope to see you this summer at theatre!

Browse Our Season

As the only professional theatre and one of the longest running arts organizations in Charlottesville, Heritage consistently delivers outstanding productions each year.  Find out more on our Season page or browse our interactive performance Calendar

Buy Your Tickets

There are multiple ways to obtain your Festival tickets or season subscriptions, including online, on the phone, or in person. We also offer discounts to students. Complete information on our box office hours, ticket prices, and policies can be found on our Box Office page. 

Bringing Children

We welcome theatre goers of all ages!  For safety reasons all patrons, large and small, require tickets.  Children must be able to sit in a seat by themselves and enjoy a full-length production (about two hours); babes in arems are not permitted.  Strollers are not allowed in the theatre.  Parents are always the best judge of what is appropriate for their child.

Plan Your Stay

Charlottesville is one of the Southeast’s premier vacation destinations. Surrounded by the beautiful, rolling Blue Ridge Mountains, yet only a hundred miles south of Washington D.C., Charlottesville is a vibrant college town with a thriving arts and culture scene, and an impressive colonial history, to boot! During your stay, take time to visit the many vineyards, nature trails, and historical sites that the area has to offer — we promise you won’t regret it.
