VCT Board President, Tom Johnson, took the directing reigns once more for the 2015 summer musical production of "Oklahoma!" The Rodgers and Hammerstein classic was brought to life on Viroqua's Historic Temple Theater stage by an ensemble of Farmers, Cowmen, Singers, and Dancers. They even staged old-fashioned shootouts on the sidewalk outside the theater before the Saturday evening performances!

One Night Only! VCT Fundraiser

Comedy, music, skits, and laughter...supporters of the Viroqua Community Theatre enjoyed a night of fun and entertainment while raising money at the 3rd One Night Only! VCT Fundraiser. Watch it here!

Directed by Jacinta Henden, VCT's 2017 musical, "Seussical", was a joyous musical return after taking the summer of 2016 off as a rebuilding year. Written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, "Seussical" is based on the world of Dr. Seuss and featured a cast of 50 (most of them school aged). With such beloved characters as The Cat in the Hat and Horton the Elephant, "Seussical" took everyone on a fantastical journey from the Jungle of Nool to Whoville and beyond.
Shrek the Musical

Once again the amazing Jacinta Henden directed both drama and music for VCT's summer 2018 musical, this time with a cast, orchestra and crew numbering over 100! Incredible performances all around and great audiences, selling out at the final matinee.  Performed at The Historic Temple Theatre in Viroqua, this was a terrific way to be entertained either for a couple hours in the audience, several weeks in the pit or on crew, or for two months as a cast member.

One Night Only! VCT Fundraiser

This March 2019 variety show was again put on at The Rooted Spoon, this time spotlighting the amazing talent of our area AND the world premier of Dean Saner's mini-musical "Viroqua Community Theatre Saves the World." Indeed, this group could no doubt do exactly that!

 Lead by director Pita Daniels, this adult-themed musical was a new avenue for VCT to walk 
 down - and was a sensation for all.  The summer of 2019 was filled with terrific music, great characters, and the grand stage spectacle for which VCT is known. Chicago was performed in the intimate setting of the Landmark Center Auditorium, very appropriate for this particular show. What a great summer highlight!

Two New Yorkers, a firefighter and a reporter, come together and find ways to help each other heal after 9/11. Directed by Pita Daniels. Our first show since (and during) COVID, VCT was thrilled to have the opportunity to share community talent with our patrons.
