Gillis Theatre

After thirty-nine years of performing at various venues, the VMI Theatre has a new home in a beautiful 500-seat theatre, and a long-awaited dream has come true for the cadets, alumni, faculty and staff, and community performers who have kept the VMI Theatre alive since 1970.

The Gillis Theater utilizes over 100 theatre-grade lights, an advanced sound and projection system, a full size stage, balcony and orchestra levels, a professional sound proofing system to keep outside noises out, and a highly effective communications network for our technical crews.

Other areas of the Center for Leadership and Ethics being used by the VMI Theatre Players include a Green Room, Rehearsal Hall, two dressing rooms, a theatre office, a box office, and a concessions stand. Adjacent to the Gillis Theatre is the ballroom and conference center named the Hall of Valor.
