The Starving Artist Theatre Overview
The Starving Artist Theatre (the “Theatre”) was created in the summer of 2004 and incorporated on September 7, 2005, as a Virginia nonprofit corporation. The Theatre was formed for the following purposes: (1) to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes; (2) to produce and present live theatre productions and other events of a similar nature; and, (3) to educate the public in all areas of theatre performance and production, through workshops and other educational programs.
The Theatre operates primarily as a playhouse to support and feature local artists. Sponsored activities include three full-length play productions, and in 2010 a summer children’s playwriting drama camp, The Little Artists. The Theatre’s mission is to create a haven for artists to develop their professional careers. The Starving Artist has launched 16 actors, two stage managers, and one sound technician’s professional career. The Theatre strives to produce unpublished playwrights and utilize undiscovered talent for all of its productions. At the present, it has produced five unpublished playwrights.
After building a strong foundation for its mission, the Theatre has now been successful in implementing those objectives by producing seven profitable and critically acclaim shows, and developed a consistent fundraising program.
