The Tony Award-winning Matilda: The Musical is a celebration of the power of imagination and the courage to overcome obstacles, and we were so excited to extend our spirit of inclusiveness through Virginia Stage Company's Public Works Day!

Starry, Starry Night | Gala 2019


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.
