Dear Virginia Musical Theatre Family and Friends,
Last March VMT was heartbroken to face a situation we never could have anticipated. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Northam closed theatres and entertainment venues across the state effectively forcing the cancellation of our last performance of the season, MAMMA MIA! We are, of course, committed to the main concern we all share, the health and safety of our audience and performers.

In order to keep you properly informed our current planning is as follows:
