The Vienna Theatre Company presents spring, summer, and winter productions each year at the Vienna Community Center.

The Vienna Theatre Company was started in 1974 by Norman Chaudet, who directed drama at James Madison High School. "Norm" formed the VTC after many students, whom he directed, wanted to continue to work with him after their graduation and his retirement. 

After several years of working with the Vienna Department of Parks and Recreation, under Jud Hockman and Barbara Gatterdam, the company was officially chartered by the Town in 1982.

VTC grew by leaps and bounds over the next few years, bringing in an abundance of talent on stage and behind the curtain. The company continues to blossom under sponsorship of the Town of Vienna.

Today, Vienna Theatre Company is the resident, non-profit performing company at the Vienna Community Center. VTC provides opportunities to participate in theater as a viewing audience or as working members of a local theater company dedicated to fine entertainment in the best traditions of community theater.




Vienna Theatre Company Winter Production

Leading Ladies

Written by Ken Ludwig

Directed by Eleanore Tapscott

Produced by Jessie Roberts

This romantic farce centers on two D-list English actors, Jack and Leo, who find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing 'Scenes from Shakespeare' on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish Country of Pennsylvania in the 1950's. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave two-thirds of her fortune to her two long lost English nephews Max and Steve, they resolve to pass themselves off as these beloved relatives and get the cash. When they discover that 'Max' and 'Steve' are really 'Maxine' and 'Stephanie,' they continue undaunted in drag. Complicating matters, Leo falls head over heals in love with the old lady's niece, Meg, heir to the other third of the fortune, and Jack falls in love with Audrey, a friend of the old lady's family, necessitating that they both play the nieces and themselves. Meg, who is engaged to the local stuffy minister, knows there's a wide world out there, but it's not until she meets 'Maxine' and 'Stephanie' that she finally gets a taste of it. What follows is a classic, farcical pastiche full of deceptions, romances, chaos, and lots of quick costume changes.

Vienna Theatre Company Spring Production

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

Written by John Bishop

Directed by Barbara Carpenter

Produced by Richard Durkin

The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious 'Stage Door Slasher') assemble for a backer's audition of their new show at the Westchester estate of a wealthy "angel". The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways, and a German maid who is apparently 4 different people- all of which figure diabolically into the comic mayhem which follows when the infamous "Slasher" makes his reappearance and strikes again- and again. As the composer, lyricist, actors, and director prepare their performance, and a blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind swiveling bookcases, and accusing fingers point in all directions. However, and with no thanks to the bumbling police inspector who snowshoes in to investigate, the mystery is solved in the nick of time and the "Slasher" unmasked- but not before the audience has been treated to a sidesplitting good time and a generous serving of the authors biting, satiric and refreshingly irreverent wit. 

Performance Dates:


Friday and Saturday April 17, 18, 24, 25 and May 1 and 2 
• 8 p.m.

Sunday, April 26 and May 3 
• 2 p.m.
