Hamner Theater

The Hamner Theater

in residence at Crozet Arts

Boomie Pedersen, Artistic Director and Co-founder

The Hamner Theater is a non-profit theater entity, founded in 2005, in a community center in Nelson County, VA. Since 2012 it has been venueless but has continued to work in the theatrical community, collaborating with other area theaters, and continuing the “free and open to the public Improv sessions” begun in 2007, as well as our VPSI readings and workshops. We were also the fiscal sponsors for several area performance groups, continuing our support of local theatrical enterprises. In May of this year, we formally took on a studio space at Crozet Arts, where we have maintained an informal presence since 2012.

As we redefine and hone our purpose now, in our studio at Crozet Arts, we want to continue telling the stories of our community; we want to bring to light what has been hidden away, (the New Town and Free Town stories,) to encourage and foster bold, sustainable community conversations. We want to make a difference in our community, one story at a time, one play at a time. Our future work includes Dementia Friendly Theater; work with the senior population, specifically with residents of care facilities; a summer Shakespeare for Crozet and surrounding environs. We want our projects to be able to travel to underserved or more remote communities where access to the performing arts may be limited. We believe that theater should be available and accessible to all because it is a necessary part of a healthy society.
