Founded in 1972, the not-for-profit Geva Theatre Center is the most attended regional theatre in New York State, attracting over 160,000 patrons each year. With two theatres (the 530 seat Wilson Mainstage and the 180 seat Fielding Nextstage), Geva produces stage productions utilizing nationally-known directors, actors and designers with the support of more than 50 full-time Rochester-based staff.
Our Wilson Subscription season runs from September through June every year while in the Fielding Nextstage, the Studio Series Subscription runs from January through June. Geva is proud to have been chosen the Best Theatre in Rochester from both the readers of the Democrat & Chronicle and Rochester City Newspaper for many years.
In addition to full productions, Geva hosts the Festival of New Theatre, The Hornet's Nest play reading series, playwright development workshops with local and regional playwrights, and much more.
Geva's educational outreach programs inform and entertain over 16,000 elementary, middle and high school students. Teachers are provided study guides for the show their students will attend; in-school workshops and visits from professional designers and actors; and the opportunity to have a talk-back with the cast and crew following the production.
