About Victoria Theatre Association

Victoria Theatre Association, located in the historic Victoria Theatre at 138 North Main Street in downtown Dayton, is one of Dayton's premier not-for-profit arts organizations. We present more than 300 performances for all ages each year, operating and maintaining three vital arts facilities for the benefit of the community and the arts organizations that use them, and further serving the community with a thriving events & catering business in the heart of downtown Dayton.

Our Vision is to enrich the lives, learning, and leisure of our community through the performing arts. Our Mission is to strengthen the economic and artistic vitality of our community and arts partners through presenting quality and diverse arts experiences and stewardship of our community’s state-of-the-art performing venues.

In addition to the JPMorgan Chase Broadway Series, Victoria Theatre Association also presents the Young at Heart Family Series, the Michelob Ultra Cool Films series, the Universal 1 Variety Series, Star Attractions, and the Physicians for Kids Discovery Series, which features curriculum-enhanced live theatre productions for school children. Victoria Theatre Association is proud of its alliance with the Dayton Opera Association and its collaboration on The Eichelberger Loft Series 1with The Human Race Theatre Company.

Victoria Theatre Association also manages the Victoria Theatre, the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center, and the Metropolitan Arts Center, which is home to The Loft Theatre.

Incorporated in 1976 as Victory Theatre Association, the organization played a crucial role in saving the Victoria Theatre (then the Victory Theatre) from demolition. The organization purchased the Victory Theatre in 1978 and restored its gilded Victorian beauty. In 1988 the Arts Center Foundation acquired the Victory Theatre from Victory Theatre Association and completed a $17.5 million renovation project. Following the renovation, it was rechristened the Victoria Theatre and Victory Theatre Association became Victoria Theatre Association.
