About Little Theatre of Norfolk

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.

Remembering George Lynch

It is with a heavy heart that we learn of the passing of our friend, George Lynch. His presence on stage, at gatherings and board functions, and in the world in general will be deeply missed. We extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and anyone privileged enough to have shared a stage or room with him.

We will dedicate a chair plaque in honor of George on August 15th.
