Directions & Parking
Ovens Auditorium is located at 2700 East Independence Blvd.
Parking for events at Ovens Auditorium is available in the large surface lots surrounding the facility.
Historic Ovens Auditorium, located at 2700 East Independence Blvd, is Charlotte’s largest performing arts theater, seating more than 2,400. It has hosted some of Blumenthal’s largest Broadway blockbusters, including multiple engagements of WICKED, and popular concerts like the Beach Boys. The theater is managed by Charlotte’s Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA).
Ovens serves a critical role for Charlotte theater and music fans because of the high usage rate of Blumenthal’s Belk Theater, which is the home hall for the PNC Broadway Lights Series and many of Charlotte’s largest cultural organizations, including the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Opera Carolina and Charlotte’s Ballet’s annual “Nutcracker.” Many nationally touring shows brought to Charlotte by Blumenthal would not be possible without having access to Ovens because the required dates are not available in Belk Theater. Ovens larger size also ensures that fan access to tickets is maximized.
