enVISion Theatre Company

The enVISion theatre company was set up as a response to a growing need for a performing arts outlet in Vientiane.

Follow our journey and up-to-date news through our Facebook page!


Open to secondary students, parents and staff, the company started up in 2013 running one off drama workshops for interested artists and over the past 5 years has evolved into a reputable ensemble who produce large scale productions annually.

The theatre company aim to create two performances per year, producing one large scale play in December and one Black Box studio performance in May. The larger production which is typically staged on our outdoor theatre now includes a junior section of performers (enVISion juniors), meaning that primary students can also become involved.

Auditions to join the enVISion theatre company are held in August at the beginning of the school year. New members are required to prepare a 1-3 minute monologue to perform to the group. New members can also join in January on request. Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 5.30-7.30pm in the Black Box and are sometimes called on Saturday mornings.

All productions are supported by the Theatre Tech Crew, made up of secondary students who are learning about the technical aspects of theatre. Teams include publicity, lighting, sound, costume, set, props and stage management. In these teams students learn how to design set, lighting and costumes, create props and compose/organize the sound for the productions as well as how to operate the software and equipment during productions. The stage management team learn how to bring all of the technical elements together throughout the preparation process and during the performances and the publicity team learn how to prepare the advertising and ticket sales.

Through the completion of each theatre project we realize the power of theatre in bringing communities together through both the rehearsal and performance process. Being a part of a team either on or off stage is a challenging but fun experience and a great way to meet new people or push yourself to new limits. If you are interested in joining the group please email Ms Rachael Phiasanaxay at rachaels@ourvis.com.

Our next production will be in December 2018!
