Who We Are


Rich Theatre is a family-oriented educational theatre company based in Virginia Beach and founded by husband and wife team Jason & Lynn Richards. Residents of Virginia Beach since 2003, Jason and Lynn both attended Regent University Graduate School, where Lynn earned an MFA in Acting and Jason earned an MA in Cinema-Television Directing in 2006. Having worked professionally both locally and nationally, the Richards launched Rich Theatre in 2017 to share their love of the arts and provide opportunities for community members to discover and cultivate a love of their own.

Rich Theatre offers education with heart, and a whole lot of fun. We believe the power of storytelling is transformative for everyone, whether behind the scenes, on the stage, or in the audience. For young and seasoned actors alike, lessons in teamwork, empathy, and friendship change lives. Whether you’re looking to try something new or to hone existing talents and skills, Rich Theatre wants to assist you on that journey.

We offer a variety of classes during the school year for students ages 7-18, as well as spring break and summer theatre camps. Our teaching staff is comprised of highly qualified working professionals. Participants will find our 3-10 student class size ensures individualized attention and tailored focus.
