Visit the Chelsea neighborhood of Norfolk, and you will be welcomed by the bold red facade of Little Theatre of Norfolk. While this intimate 210-seat playhouse was initially built in 1949, Little Theatre of Norfolk has been a continuously operating community theatre since 1926. Back then, when the Little Theatre Movement was spreading across the country, the group operated out of a former horse stable on York Street downtown. Now the group presents five main-stage productions each season – a fall musical, three plays over the winter months, and a spring musical. The shows selected each season provide a well-rounded mix of modern works and classics. LTN also offers educational workshops and an annual scholarship.
Little Theatre of Norfolk is committed to creating a safe space for artists to gather and create. If you have suggestions for better supporting BIPOC at LTN, we want to hear them. Please share any criticism, suggestions, ideas, or experiences to help shape our future.Anonymous Comments
Little Theatre of Norfolk honored board member George Lynch, with a special memorial and virtual dedication, August 15, 2020. George loved being on stage acting and singing. He was cast in LTN productions such as “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” and “The Farnsworth Invention” and performed in other community theatre productions such as “Side Show” at LTVB and most recently, “Legally Blonde” with SLT. He was also active behind the scenes with the LTN board, running crew, selling concessions, house managing, and ushering. We all miss George, and send our love to his family.
