We believe the arts change lives and transform communities. By offering our community members many different avenues to explore creativity, VTA hopes to provoke inspirational conversations, deep self-reflection, and inspired celebration in Dayton.

Explore Your Creativity

We also offer ways for you to explore your creativity with almost every show we present. Just check the page for the show you’re going to see.


Military discounts are available for most of our shows. You can find discount information on each show’s page.

We also participate in Hometown Heroes™, a year-long tribute to the men and women from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the Springfield Air National Guard Base who safeguard and support our nation’s defense. We celebrate their ongoing contributions to the Dayton region’s economy and quality of life that make living and working here so enjoyable! Victoria Theatre Association and the Dayton Development Coalition are excited to continue our partnership with the 2017-2018 Hometown Heroes™ program that the region has so generously supported for more than a decade.

Visual Voices

The EbonNia Gallery, in collaboration with Victoria Theatre Association, celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Dayton Skyscrapers Art Exhibit project February 6-March 31, 2017 at the Schuster Center. Each year we partner with Shango Center for African-American Art and Culture, and Willis “Bing” Davis, curator of Dayton’s EbonNia Gallery, to display an exhibit of art by local African-American artists. Past themes have included a tribute to Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Dayton’s role in funk music, and “Dayton Skyscrapers,” which celebrate African-American men and women who stand tall as role models in the community.
