Wonderful evening at the WIZ!!!!

What a wonderful evening we had at this show! Hard to believe that most of the performers are students! Dorothy was a HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR! Really was "Broadway in Norfolk"!!

We saw "The Wiz", and just like the theater, this production was phenomenal. This was my first time at The Wells, and I was blown away by the talent and magnificence of it all. do yourself a favor, and treat yourself to an evening you won't soon forget.

I could have paid a lot more for this experience and not known the difference. The talent and professional production was impressive and the play was very entertaining. The venue is in good shape and it looks like management is trying to maintain high standards.

The theater itself is magnificent and has recently had some renovation done, but its original splendor is still intact! Their productions have been varied to suit all tastes and age groups. Check out their website and pick one, you will surely have a... More

Saw this VSC production recently and as with almost all VSC productions, it was wonderfully produced, acted and directed. Recommended.

Moved here 5 years ago & I've been to about 20 plays here. I love the size of this place and the Shows have been fabulous. Very excited about the 39th Season. "Pride & Prejudice" tops the list but all 6 Shows sound great. Love that they offer Saturday Matinees. What a great idea. The Shows are @ 4 PM... More

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

My wife, daughter and I attended last night. Virginia Stage Company put on a wonderful production of A Christmas Carol! We thoroughly enjoyed the cast, their singing and the story...so well told. The Wells Theatre never looked better!

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
