The Festival

Blue Ridge Summer Theatre Festival

The Blue Ridge Summer Theatre Festival is produced annually by Endstation Theatre Company. This exciting theatrical event includes original plays about and for Virginia, family-friendly productions, and location-specific outdoor shows.

The Blue Ridge Summer Theatre Festival is truly a uniquely Central Virginia experience. At our outdoor performances, the location sets the stage. We have created performance spaces all over the Sweet Briar College campus, and have begun to explore unque outdoor spaces in Lynchburg as well. Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic both before and during the show. Local vineyards bring their best summer wines to offer tastings and glasses throughout the evening.

Indoor performances with Endstation are no less engaging. Musicals are chosen each season reflect the values and the stories that resonate strongly with the Central Virginia community. Every aspect of Endstation’s season pays homage to this beautiful region we call home. The Blue Ridge Summer Theatre Festival is truly a magical experience, one that we hope to share with new audiences each and every season.

Visit Central Virginia

Central Virginia is one of the most beautiful places in the country – it’s a fact. The Blue Ridge Mountains offer a stunning backdrop to an area rich in history, culture, and unique locations. There is so much to do, so much to see, and we invite you to come spend a weekend to explore the region by day, and experience the Festival by night.

There are plenty of places to visit during your stay. For those that enjoy a crisp, cold glass of wine on a warm summer day, Central Virginia is home to over 60 vineyards growing varietals from Viognier to Chardonnay, Merlot to Cabernet Franc. You can spend your day tasting your way through the valley, stopping along the way at one of the many antique shops, historical sites, and locally-owned restaurants.
