Tickets & Passes

Buying Tickets

Buy early and save! Tickets can be ordered online, with discounts for advance purchases, groups of 10+, military, senior, and student patrons. Tickets can also be purchased in-person beginning 1 hour before performances at our underground theater box office. Come out and see a show!


Where is the Generic Theater?

We’re literally underground — in the basement of Chrysler Hall. If you approach the Chrysler Hall Box Office (near the fountain), enter one of the red corner doors flanking the ticketing windows, walk down the stairs to the bottom level, and follow the Generic Theater signs to Little Hall. Alternatively, you can drive into the Scope Parking Garage, stay to the right, drive down the ramp to the bottom (Level U), and follow the Generic signs.

Supporting The Performing Arts

Donate to Generic Theater

We’re looking to build our audience, expand our reach into the communities that we serve, and bring attention to the enormous talent we are blessed to have in Norfolk and throughout Hampton Roads. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we depend on your financial support to fulfill this mission. Please consider supporting the Generic Theater with a tax-deductible contribution.


Auditions July 15th & 17th

Following the end of the Civil War, many former slaves took advantage of The Homestead Act and went West to build new lives for themselves and their families. Set in 1898, Flyin’ West follows four black women as they lay claim to land in Nicodemus, an all-black Kansas town.



We hope you’ll stay in touch with us. In addition to our various online outlets (@GenericTheater on Instagram, Facebook, and elsewhere) we encourage you to sign-up for our email newsletter. We’ll keep you informed of upcoming productions, audition notices, special events, and more.
