Went to see Guys and Dolls and sat in box seats on stage right. Loved the show and love the Wells Theatre. It is a smaller theatre with a cozy atmosphere. (You are allowed to bring drinks into the theatre when you watch the show.) This was our second show at the Wells and we love going there.

VA Stage Co is doing a great job with their productions. The venue is outstanding and beautiful. This season has a wide variety of shows. Their Christmas productions are always a favorite.

If you’re lucky enough to be in town when they are presenting something, go! Everything I’ve seen there has been first-rate. The theater itself is lovely - great historic details that have been well-preserved.

The Hound of the Baskervilles was funny, the actors were excellent, and the Wells Theater is a treasure! Definitely worth you time and the price is very reasonable... a fun outing!

Absolutely the most beautiful theater around. Newly renovated but kept that old special theater look of balconies and statuary, lighting and seats.

Hidden gem in Virginia Beach and well worth a visit. The staff, performers and director really make this work and clearly enjoy their baby. My wife swears by this theatre and gets season tickets every year. The Christmas season is impressive and puts you in the spirit. Pick a play and enjoy a great performance.

Was able to grab a ticket to their production of Mathilda upon arriving in town and am so glad I went. I had been wanting to see this show and this company did an amazing job. The young lead was phenomenal. I work on a high end national tour and I find great joy in watching a production that doesn't rely on high tech, grand stage gestures to tell the story. Sweet little vintage theatre makes for an intimate theatrical experience. Go support this local theatre...You will have a great time.

We always enjoy attending shows at the Wells Theater. It has been beautifully restored, with comfortable seats. There are two bars, one in a large lounge to the right. It’s within a short walk from a parking garage. Several excellent restaurants are nearby, as well. We sat about half way up in the mezzanine and loved the view. The show was “Always... Patsy Cline.” The story was about an avid fan who became best friends with Patsy. It was a clever and entertaining way to give the star time to change while the co-star told the story—sometimes funny, sometimes poignant. Both of them were talented singers and made it a fun evening. They were accompanied by an excellent band, the members of which joined in the fun. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening in a beautiful theater.
