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.

NASA Moon Walk

Saturday, March 23, 2019 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Please join us we conclude the Betty M. and William B. Jones Humanities Speaker Series and our journey through the turbulent times of 1968 and 1969 with a lecture celebrating the 50th anniversary of NASA successfully sending men to the moon.

On July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Fifty years later, NASA engineer Richard Thompson will discuss the historic significance and technical achievements of that lunar landing and provide insight into NASA’s upcoming lunar missions.

Guests also will enjoy “Apollo 11: Celebrating 50 Years of Exploration,” an exhibit of images and artifacts from NASA missions, including an official NASA astronaut training suit.

The presentation is free and open to the public, so share with anyone who is interested. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
