Endstation Theatre Company has defined professional theatre in Central Virginia for over a decade. Founded in 2006 by Florida State University School of Theatre MFA graduates, Geoffrey Kershner and Krista Franco, Endstation Theatre Company took up residency at Sweet Briar College. Shortly after founding Endstation, Kershner and Franco sought other artists to join the company.
Every Endstation Theatre Company production has a strong visual and conceptual aesthetic due to the strengths and interests of its company members. In 2006 Endstation produced the company’s first show, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Mind of Poe, in a number of theatres throughout Virginia and as part of the Washington, D.C. Fringe Festival in the summer of 2007. Endstation Theatre Company produced their first summer season on the college’s grounds in 2008, and the company has expanded with each new season.
Beginning in 2016, Endstation Theatre Company took up residency at Randolph College. In the heart of Lynchburg, this creative campus is a fresh backdrop to Endstation’s theatre productions.
