    I loved being back in this theatre again. The performance was Fiddler on the Roof and it was exceptional! The new carpeting, seats, and paint are just lovely. the seats seem a little wider, but don't quote me on that! I loved the experience.

    no longer WCL but now is run by Live Nation. Main stage is downstairs, open area. General admission STANDING is typical for most shows. There is a balcony upstairs for additional costs. Drink prices are $$$. $4 for a soda,$8 for a beer, $12 for top shelf. They do have good tribute bands - sometimes for free. I've seen TRIBUTE Tom Petty, Van Halen, David Bowie, Ozzy, AC/DC, etc. and all were very good

    Our first trip to Delaware Theater Company and it could not have been better! Right off I-95, plenty of FREE parking, and wonderful volunteer staff. We saw a delightful one man show and already bought tickets to a few future productions. How did we ever miss this hidden gem?!!!

    We attended a showing of The Adventures of Princess Truheart at the Delaware Children's Theatre one Saturday afternoon. This was our second time seeing a play here. When we arrived, the theatre was pretty empty, which was a big difference as compared to our first visit here. I'm guessing it was because this was an ORIGINIAL play instead of a well-known headline show. We sat near the front in the center section. We also chose to sit on the end as the performers go up and down the aisles during the show. The kids find this exciting!

    The show started promptly and on time. Halfway through the show, there is an intermission to allow you to get up to stretch your legs, use the restroom and get a snack/souvenir. This showing only offered snacks like bagged pretzels and snack packs of Oreos. They also sell bottled water, juice pouches and canned sodas. We were a little disappointed that they did NOT have cupcakes this time. We were a little shocked that they did NOT have Unicorn or rainbow colored icing cupcakes since the play contained a Unicorn, Prancy, with a rainbow mane. Also, the toys offered up for souvenirs were heart shaped necklaces and stuffed frogs. They also missed the mark on toy souvenirs. Most of the stuff seems like items ordered from the trading supplies magazine OR from the local dollar store. I would like to see better quality merchandise that is theme appropriate for the actual play. Unicorn or princess headbands, stuffed unicorn toys, fairy wings, etc. would have been good selections for this play since ONE of the characters was a Unicorn and others were princesses/fairies. They missed the mark. I personally think they could do a much better job on concessions and sales in general. During this time you can also purchase raffle tickets for the basket they are raffling off. This time it was a basket full of plush animals. After about a 10-15 minute break, the show resumes for the second half.

    After the second half of the show, the cast can briefly be found in the concession space. Here they do sort of a meet & greet with the kids. They take photos and sign autographs. Of course the kids loved meeting the princesses (Snow White and Cinderella) and Prancy, the unicorn pony. Princess Tru, Queen Beatrix and Prancy were very gracious and kind in meeting with the children.

    Overall, we enjoyed our visit with this theatre. The shows we have seen have been well done. This show in particular was very cute, humorous at times and had a good life lesson/message. It was sort of like a mash-up of princess shows and the Wizard of Oz, but a truly original play. All of the actors did a great job, but I really thought the Great Zabraca (Michael Hynson) really stood out in this play. His performance was amazing. Stumbelina (Kristina Williams) and Prancy (Emily Woznicki) both had amazing voices in song. The kids loved it & were amazed with the confetti shower at the end!!

    Bottom Line: Great Theatre to take the kids for an afternoon show. Place could use some general repairs and better concessions/souvenirs. Plan to spend about 1 & 1/2 to just under 2 hours here from arrival to meet & greet. I would recommend for families with small children. The kids will love it!

    Bootless stages avant-garde shows with a competent cast and staging. Always interesting and fun, and a great buy in entertainment.

    Saturday matinee. The best seats I could find were in Row L, which is underneath the balcony overhang. Normally I am wary of this location in a theater because of sound issues. Not the case in this house. In a show where words really matter, we had no trouble hearing every one of them. Easy theater to get in and out of, plenty pf nearby parking at reasonable rates. VERY enjoyable afternoon in Wilmington.

    Over six nights the Rock Orchestra performed the entire Beatles discography with every instrument and musician present in the records. We seen the 6th and last night and the set was Abbey Road and Let It Be. Really fantastic show full of hard working local artists. I’ve seen a lot of people do less with more. The venue is sorta run down but it’s a most volunteer drama club and it had no bearing on my evening.
