108 E. Tazewell Street, Norfolk, VA, 23510


As a reminder, our first two productions of Season 38, I Sing the Rising Sea and Oliver Twist, will be held at two other, convenient Norfolk locations, as the Wells Theatre is currently under renovation. Please be sure to check your tickets and/or the individual show pages here on our website for more specific venue information.


Metered parking spots are available all over downtown Norfolk. However, if you're coming to see a performance at the Wells Theatre, we recommend parking in the South deck of MacArthur Center, which has a street entrance on City Hall Avenue. Valet parking at MacArthur Center is also available at its Monticello Avenue entrance.


There are plenty of dining spots within walking distance of the Wells Theatre if you'd like to grab a meal before your show. Some nearby places to try include Brick Anchor Brew-HouseFreemason Abbey, Todd Jurich's Bistro, The Vineyard's Trattoria, and Voila!
