Meredith Center for the Arts


Norfolk Collegiate’s Meredith Center for the Arts, named in honor of Peter Meredith Sr. and Susan Meredith, opened on March 1, 2013, to coincide with Norfolk Collegiate’s 65th anniversary. The 26,000-square-foot, $8.5 million cultural arts center includes four classrooms, a chorus room, two seminar rooms, two galleries for exhibiting students’ work and a scene design shop.
The facility’s centerpiece is its 425-seat professional theater, which also is available by lease to community organizations. Paneled with natural oak on all four sides, the Hackney Theater, named for Jo Melchor Hackney & John H. Hackney Jr., includes professional sound and rigging systems and four-location lighting technology. The two-story theater lobby, also lined with natural oak, is also used for receptions.
