We have such a gift in Norfolk; the Va Stage Company. Last night we saw Oliver. It was a more updated version. Spectacular! The young company did an amazing job bringing out each character. The background musician was incredible. A must see at the Wells Theater or Roper Center.

If you live in Hampton Roads or are a welcomed visitor check out the season schedule. Frequently you can see an awesome production for Off Broadway prices. (Dress rehearsal and same day tickets are dirt cheap.) This is a performance art jewel box venue. A highlight that I will never forget is a one woman show by Jean Stapleton. Check... More

We were here in November and lucky to be able to see "All my sons". We were absolutely blown away by how awesome the performance was! It is a lovely theatre that can compete with the big names! Check the schedules in advance, and make sure to see a play here! Thank you and CHAPEAU to the Virginia Stage Company... More

Theatre was clean, well preserved and quaint. Restrooms sufficient. Parking .... nightmare, just bite the bullet and park at MacArthur mall. Bar lobby beverages were available and everyone was smiling and pleasant. LOVED the show! It was entertaining and fun. Perfect start to Valentine's date!

A visit to The Wells is always a treat. It's a cultural visit to another era. The theater is truly lovely with it's balconies and velvet drapes and other period decor. It is architecturally interesting to go back to the 'roaring 20's'. The seating is comfortable and the viewing is good from most any location in the theater. It probably... More

We have been season subscribers for many years, and have enjoyed some spectacular performances at the Wells Theater. It is located just a block or two from many excellent dining establishments.

If attending well-written and thoughtful plays in a charming and intimate setting, this is the place to enjoy it all! It is a quaint theater with a hushed old-world ambience that envelopes you in a warm atmosphere of Broadway radiance. There are varied libations and snacks for your purchase, a comprehensive theater guide, and a good view of the stage... More

I recently saw a production at the Wells Theater put on by the VSC. It was super. The theater is very deceiving from the outside. It looks just like any other building, but once inside it is a whole different story. The architecture is beautiful, the murals and paintings on the walls are amazing as well. You feel like you...

Low prices for excellent performances. The theater itself is nice. If you love live theater, you'll enjoy the productions here.

My wife and I have been season ticket holders for many years. The VSC's productions never fail to entertain, educate, and amaze us. The cast members of each production are very professional and the staging is always perfect. Great place for a wonderful night out.
