Live Arts as seen at sunset from the Charlottesville Downtown Mall

Live Arts is housed in a modern, state of the art facility.  Centrally located in the heart of Charlottesville, our building contains both the large and small fully-functioning theater, a large multipurpose room, a smaller meeting room, an expansive wrap around fourth-floor deck with great views of the sunset, and an elegant open third-floor lobby with a built in bar and comfortable seating.

We have high speed to get Internet access through our friends at Ting, theatrical lighting options – of course, and concert quality sound systems. When not in use for our productions, we offer our spaces – and even the entire building – at affordable rental rates.

The Live Arts building has been the host of wedding receptions, birthday parties, corporate celebrations, and a three-day design/tech conference. If you are looking for a place to have a special event, a retirement party, a happy hour, or a rehearsal dinner, we think you’ll find what you’re looking for in one of our live arts rental packages.

Below, you’ll find information about our various spaces.

For more information please contact our Rental Manager, Chris Kelly
