About the Ohio Valley Summer Theater

Children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of Ohio Valley Summer Theater’s community continue to revel in our 66-year-strong history of summer theater productions.

Founded in 1951 in Athens, Ohio by a small group of Ohio University professors and community members, OVST originally served as a community theater and a laboratory for Ohio University’s School of Theater, producing four to six plays each summer.  In 1988, OVST was re-established as a separate 501(c)3 non-profit organization with continued support from Ohio University. The community and University collaboration continues to benefit from strong collaboration, dedicated donor-patrons, ongoing operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, and local and regional business partnerships.

OVST offers high-quality performances for the entire family; partners with theater professionals, Ohio University faculty and students, and community members; offers an annual youth theater camp; and helps to organize and support regional arts events and performances year-round.

As a donor-supported, non-profit organization, we encourage innovative approaches to live performance and welcome new participants and partners to our productions, youth camp, and volunteer Board.

OVST is proud to be a community heritage organization that adds to the vibrant, cultural fabric of Athens County and the surrounding Appalachian region.
