About Little Theatre of Norfolk

Visit the quaint 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 originally 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. Even Hollywood Golden Age film star Margaret Sullavan once graced the LTN stage! 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 offer a well-rounded mix of modern works and classics to welcome everyone in the Hampton Roads community, and visitors, to experience live theatre. LTN also offers educational workshops and an annual scholarship.

Cancelled: 2020 Liverpool International Theatre Festival

The Liverpool International Theatre Festival scheduled for October 2020 in Nova Scotia, Canada has been postponed until 2021. The LTN touring troupe appreciates the support of the community so far this year. All funds raised to date will be held for the 2021 festival. If you would like to make a contribution, please visit ltnonline.org/donate and select “touring troupe” under “reason.” The touring troupe will be back with The Commedia Rapunzel as soon as we are able. We look forward to being one of the two troupes representing the US in 2021!
