Our artistic team works year-round with our entire volunteer cast to create, produce, choreograph, costume and direct our annual spring and holiday performances.

Bringing The Vision to Life on Stage


Vaud-Villities has been dazzling audiences since 1943. Lowell Riley and Bob Murphy, founders of Vaud-Villities, left the organization in the capable and talented hands of several various Directors since their time at the helm. Each of the annual performances is under the fine leadership of this artistic staff. Occasionally, you’ll find them on the stage in addition to directing.
