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.
LTN opens this season’s workshop series on October 24 with a Zoom reading of #WhileBlack, inspired by the young, award-winning playwright’s experience dealing with racial profiling and gentrification in her own community. Sign up to audition via Zoom October 6 from 5pm – 8pm.Audition Details
