Join us at the Wells Theatre for happy hour events every Wednesday for the rest of the Summer! You'll get an unprecedented backstage look at the Wells with events happening in the lobby, the Tazewell Lounge, AND on the stage! Drinks from the Tazewell bar and locally curated food by Nomarama will be available for purchase. Sponsored in part by Virginia Eye Consultants.
On Saturday night, we welcomed nearly 200 friends and guests to our SOLD OUT annual fundraising gala, Starry Starry Night.
We laid out the "walk of fame" for our Founding Board members and their families, whose vision to purchase a rundown theater and turn it back into a legitimate venue revolutionized the arts scene in downtown Norfolk. The Tazewell Lounge was decorated with memories and keepsakes from the early years of the company.
Thanks to our amazing event sponsors and fabulous Gala Committee, all of our guests enjoyed an incredible evening beginning with a cocktail hour and silent auction. Our guest were then led onto the historic Wells Theatre stage for a fantastic dinner provided by Omar's Carriage House with wine from Tinto Wine & Cheese, spotlight performances, and a live auction, all hosted by our Emcee and Auctioneer, Blaine Stewart of WTKR.
