Fox River Valley Theatre Company
It is the mission of FRVTC to be recognized as a premier Fox Cities community theatre which: provides professional entertainment and educational opportunities to its audiences; presents family-friendly productions; promotes an environment that is open and inviting to participation of the whole community; promotes a professional attitude among the volunteers, staff, and friends and family who constitute the "community"; and makes a commitment to produce high-quality live theatre.
The Fox River Valley Theatre is the brain-child of Artistic Director James R. Lawrence, who first founded Theatre As You Like It in 1994 in Minneapolis, MN. Having been native to the Fox River Valley, he had always wanted to return to the area. Finally, TAYLI transformed into FRVTC, a non-profit theatre, set up to serve the community through the arts by offering plays people want to see. Through many years of experience, it became obvious that most people--of course, not all--liked comedies, mysteries, and musicals. So, James agreed that was the direction that the theatre should go (it was originally producing classic plays from Shakespeare, Chekov, etc.)
