Our mission

Smokestack Theatre Company is a nonprofit organization serving Danville, Pittsylvania County, and the surrounding region.  We are an ensemble of theatre artists dedicated to creating quality, exciting, and transformative theatre for the cultural enrichment of the entire community. We strive to enhance our community through education and outreach to adults and children, providing innovative instruction and creative expression to inspire another generation of theatre artists.

The goals of STC:

  1. To produce creative, relevant theatre from a cross-section of the finest works available in an environment of artistic excellence with the participation of local and professional talent.

  2. To provide the beginner artist exploration in our youth and adult theatre craft classes and workshops while continuing to challenge veteran talents.

  3. To go beyond producing a regular season by offering special events and outreach programs throughout the year, such as curriculum based school tours, summer camps, after school programs for K-12, and evening programs for college students, working adults, and seniors.

  4. To be fully engaged in the community by participating in local events, partnering with other community organizations, and giving back through various fundraisers meant to benefit the community beyond just Smokestack Theatre Company’s mission.

  5. To be a leader in the growing and diverse arts scene in the region, supporting artists of all kinds.
