The premier professional non-profit theatre in southeastern Virginia, Virginia Stage Company was founded in 1978 by members of the Hampton Roads community who had a deep desire to make live theatre a part of the area’s cultural life. Our ongoing agenda at Virginia Stage includes brainstorming new ways for people to experience theater as both our society and our art form evolve as we seek to “enrich, educate, and entertain the region by creating and producing theatrical art of the highest quality.”
As a part of this mission, Virginia Stage Company excitedly stretches the boundaries of theatrical art with the immersive production With Your Name Upon My Lips. Partnering with local treasures like the Hermitage Museum and CORE Theatre Ensemble, Virginia Stage is proud to produce non-traditional projects that give our community a chance to explore and experiment together. With Your Name Upon My Lips gives patrons a one-of-a-kind opportunity to step into an original world created specifically for Hampton Roads that blurs the boundaries between reality and performance.
The Hermitage Museum and Gardens is proud to present WITH YOUR NAME UPON MY LIPS, an interactive, immersive and one-of-a-kind theatrical experience and party. Dive into the 1920s with the Virginia Stage Company and the CORE Theatre Ensemble as you explore the twists and turns on the Hermitage home and blur the boundary between reality and illusion. This unique and interactive event uses original letters from the World War I trenches as inspiration and gives participants a new perspective of the Hermitage home. WITH YOUR NAME UPON MY LIPS promises to be an intriguing party and unforgettable experience unlike anything you have seen in Norfolk before.
