Forging Powerful Connections

What We've Been Up To

Hailing from the Ohio River valley at the juncture of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio, Alchemy Theatre is a group of artisans and neighbors from across the artistic and civic spectrum, bound together by their love of theatre and the community around them.

Alchemy Theatre was founded as a non-profit company at the end of 2017. Our mission is simple:

To leave the world better than we find it, by enriching our community with professional entertainment in an accessible space and empowering local artisans.

Over the years, Alchemy has striven to create high quality theatre in a kind, safe, and supportive atmosphere - and to do some good in the process.



2018 Season

Alchemy's inaugural season was kicked off by an Opening Night cabaret performance to great acclaim, and went on to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream in partnership with WV Shakespeare Festival. They closed the season with the intimate and all-woman Love, Loss, and What I Wore.

With their feet planted firmly under them, Alchemy's second season leapt to new heights with 5 shows: an opening Cabaret, the hilarious Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a tropical imagining of Twelfth Night (again with WV Shakes), the haunting musical Dark of the Moon, and Yasmina Reza's ART.

2020 Season

Alchemy opened the 2020 season with an ambitious and adrenaline-fueled production of the beloved musical Follies, right before live performances were placed on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic. Undaunted, Alchemy pivoted - quickly joining WV Shakes and area performers to spearhead The Play's The Thing, a two-part series with group renditions of Shakespeare's classic monologue, "To Be Or Not To Be" from Hamlet and Juliet's "Gallop Apace" monologue from Romeo and Juliet. Alchemy then hosted two socially-distanced Cabaret performances, with patrons watching from the safety of their cars via projection and radio - drive-in style! Alchemy then finally iced the cake with The Tempest, a staged reading with high production values, once again in partnership with WV Shakes.

2021 Season

Alchemy's 2021 season started with an ambitious project - our first feature-length film! Noel Coward's Hay Fever was adapted to screen by Director Stephen Vance, with a cast and crew made up of Huntington's own. The film debuted in May at Pullman Square's Marquee Cinema with a red carpet event and a full house. More showings would follow at various venues over the rest of the season.

2021 Antigone

The 4th Annual WV Shakespeare Festival kicked off in June with a beautiful production of Antigone and the side-splitting The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), all made possible in part by a generous grant from the West Virginia Humanities Council. In October Alchemy would bring Exit Laughing, a touching comedy with a hilarious twist, to raucous houses. With Leach Turley at the helm, Alchemy collaborated with multiple other area arts organizations to mount a production of The Telltale Lilac Bush in late October, funded in part by a grant from Charleston Creativity Connections and FestivALL Charleston

Finally, Alchemy closed out the 2021 season with a Holiday Cabaret and A Cozy Christmas, the first in a series of Hallmark Channel-inspired original plays written by local playwrights Mike Murdock and Simon Woods.

2022 Season

Alchemy's 2022 season, Conquering Calamity, kicked off with a new venture in our first New Works Festival, in which adult and high-school playwrights from around the area submitted their works for staged readings by Alchemy's talented actors, followed by feedback from those in attendance.

2022 New Works
2022 Red Noses

March brought the hard-hitting dark comedy Red Noses by Peter Barnes to the Huntington stage, a rarely seen work to challenge performers and audience members alike.

For the next several months Alchemy and the crew of the previous season's Hay Fever would work to bring two pilot episodes of a new television show to fruition: equity by Mike Murdock, a hilarious look into the lives of the performers and staff of a professional regional theatre company as their world is turned upside-down.

The 5th Annual WV Shakespeare Festival would open in August with a raft of workshops and special guests at Huntington City Hall. Festival goers came in droves to see Alchemy's production of Return to the Forbidden Planet, a jukebox musical based loosely on the 1956 film Forbidden Planet and riddled with references to Shakespeare's works. Alchemy would also debut an abridged production of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, which would then travel to area schools as part of Alchemy's Shakespeare on the Road program.

2022 Shrew

October brought audiences to the edge of their seats with the thriller Wait Until Dark, a stage adaptation of the acclaimed film. Finally, Alchemy would close out the season with a bang with a Season's Greetings Holiday Cabaret and season announcement party, followed by A Cozy Wedding, the second in a series of Hallmark Channel-inspired plays by local playwrights Mike Murdock and Simon Woods.

2023 Season

Alchemy's 2023 season, If You Knew My Story, kicked off with second annual New Works Festival at Cellar Door, in which adult and high-school playwrights from around the area submitted their works for staged readings by Alchemy's talented actors, once again followed by feedback from those in attendance.

Then Everything Changed

In March Alchemy entered into a lease agreement for the old Geneva Kent Elementary School in the crossroads community of Huntington!! We finally found our home! The first month was a flurry of activity, as Alchemists and local businesses worked feverishly to prepare the old building for Alchemy's first show of the season - Private Wars. Inspections, SO much cleaning, renovation of the gym into a black box theater and the creation of a front lobby space, not to mention moving all of our gear from scattered storage units (and space loaned by our good friends at First Stage Theatre Company!), it was an enormous undertaking... but it paid off.

Alchemy's Geneva Kent Center for the Arts

Alchemy opened Pvt Wars in our black box theatre at the newly-christened Alchemy's Geneva Kent Center for the Arts in April. It was amazing to produce such an important work, poignant dark comedy about vietnam veterans dealing with their own personal aftermath, in our new space. Less than a month later Little Women took to the Alchemy stage and blew audiences away with a bevy of talented adult and child actors.

In June, Alchemy kicked off the 6th Annual WV Shakespeare Festival with numerous workshops and presentations from invited scholars and community organizations, as well as a bazaar of products hand-crafted by local artisans. As part of the festivities Alchemy produced Bright Star, a beautifully touching and critically acclaimed musical written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, to sold out crowds. Inspired by a true story, Bright Star tells a deeply emotional tale of love, loss, and redemption in the early 20th century's American South, and was a beatiful cap to the summer festival.

Not done with June yet, Alchemy launched its first Kids Theatre Intensive - a full week of classes and workshops for children. We had a blast with these kids, and capped off their week with a public performance showcasing what they'd learned in an evening of monologues and a full short play featuring costumes and set pieces made by the kids themselves!

September brought Alchemy's first official children's theatre production, Book Women! Based on the amazing true story of a group of determined horseback librarians in Appalachia's Great Depression, Book Women wowed audiences with amazing performances by talented child actors. Seriously. We're so proud of these kids!

With too many offerings to be contained in the summer WV Shakes Festival, Alchemy launched the Fall WV Shakespeare Festival! More classes and workshops from scholars and community organizations filled the festival, and during the next two months a group of talented Alchemists headed out on tour. Carrying on the previous season's Shakespeare on the Road program, these actors would visit multiple area schools as well as the Governor's School for the Arts to present an abridged production of Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. It was a distinct pleasure to perform for hundreds of students, many of whom had never seen live theatre before, and discuss the play with them afterward.

Making God Laugh, a touching look at the mislaid plans and dreams of a family told over successive holiday visits over the decades, hit Alchemy's stage in October. This hilarious comedy with a surprisingly deep message delighted audiences... and we had a lot of fun, too!

Ending the year with a bang, Alchemy finished out the season with its Season's Greetings Cabaret and the final installment in the locally written hallmarkian comedy trilogy, A Cozy Finale. Fun for the whole family and an audience favorite, A Cozy Finale wrapped up the story of our Cozy friends and neighbors with a bow (get it?). Ending the series after spending the previous two Christmases in Cozy's Hallmark-inspired world was bittersweet. So... why leave?! During the Season's Greetings Cabaret Alchemy announced the 2024 season of shows, including a REAL Cozy Christmas Festival!

We hope you'll join us.
