"Building empowerment and literacy through live entertainment"
As we begin to re-open West Virginia, Blackroot is resuming auditions and rehearsals for future productions. While we are not able to utilize our regular stage for live theatre performances yet, we will be sharing our theatre magic through DRIVE-IN THEATRE. Park your car in our parking lot, tune to our FM station, and watch actors perform on our outdoor stage.
What joining BlackRoot Theatre Company can do for you:
* Boost confidence & self-esteem * Expand your Social Network
* Fun, educational environment * Reach your performing goals
* Mental discipline and teamwork * Nurture your creativity
* Work with members of a collaborative community theatre group
"I have been a part of Blackroot for 6 months now and I absolutely love it. I have developed a love for acting & have met a ton of amazing people. I also love being a part of the variety shows. I highly recommend this place."

"Cathy is absolutely amazing. Our children who were absolutely terrified in partaking in this have been begging us to sign up for her next performance. Not only has it helped their reading and vocabulary but also their anxiety about public speaking. I would recommend anyone allow their children to work with Cathy and all involved at BlackRoot."

"Wonderful new addition to the upper Kanawha Valley! I can't wait to watch it grow. The in-house actors have great talent. I thoroughly enjoyed the opening night of "Anything Goes" and really wished I could've made it to the second night. I think I've found my new entertainment venue!!"

"We really love BlackRoot Theatre! My daughter has been involved in a couple plays and she loves it! The children learn so much and they all have a great time! Would definitely recommend them to anybody!"

"My son was a part of the summer theater camp 2019. He came from a nervous self conscious child struggling with confidence to singing a solo in a production! He plays sports, runs 5k’s, has excellent grades in school but was terrified of being in front of a group of people. They understand that and do not discriminate against anyone with special needs. He has developed skills that will help him all through his life through this theater and the people who worked with him. I would recommend this to everyone."
