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.

Beautifully restored and maintained old theater in the heart of downtown. Have never seen a production here I didn't like and some have been amazing. First class company. Highly recommend you go if you have the opportunity to do so.

My husband, daughter and I enjoyed the production we were able to attend over the holidays. It was of professional quality. The Theater was beautiful and the staff were most helpful.

Fantastic history and even more fantastic productions by the Virginia Stage Company. What an absolute treasure located on a side street in downtown Norfolk. You will be amazed by the Architecture and overwhelmed by the fantastic productions offered throughout the year. Definitely worth visiting.

Let me talk about a recent production, in order to make a point about this excellent company: Taming of the Shrew is not an easy play to do anymore. When you get right down to it, it's a play about how the hero abuses his spouse until she submits to his will. A comedy about spouse abuse. Have fun with... More

This is an absolutely gorgeous building that has been lovingly restored. We are season members and appreciate the variety of plays that are offered. They are well done with excellent sets.

The productions are amazing and Broadway quality shows. You will not be disappointed. When visiting the theater, look up. Please take in the beautiful architecture of this beautifully restored historical site. It’s a Norfolk treasure for sure.

We are season members of VSC and they always have a variety of plays every season, from classic American titles to more contemporary plays and also some home-grown American Soil Series offerings which tell the story of the Hampton Roads area. Highly recommended.

I have been a subscriber for many y8ears...sometimes I may not like the play, but the presentations are truly professional! The theater tries to offer a variety of plays each season, .including a musical, comedies, dramas, classics, at least one new work and one black-themed play....

We've had seasons tickets for 31 years now, and every year brings intelligent, reasonable, and entertaining theatre. We've plays in NY that started here and sometimes ours are even better. And the beauty of the Wells Theater adds to the power of the acting. Good value for the money.
