Recently moved to the area and this place is one of the jewels of Wilmington. The theatre was recently renovated to its original pre-civil war charm. It is a cozy theatre, where practically every seat in the house is a good one. We liked it so much, we just bought season tickets for the 2012-2013 production year.
If you're in Wilmington and catch a show here I'm sure it will be worth every penny.

We were blessed by really good friends who took us here to see Hello Dolly last month for a birthday celebration. This theatre is absolutely beautiful! They did a wonderful job restoring and recapturing a by-gone era of society. Highly recommended to see a show here.

This gorgeous theater has been in continuous use since 1858 and was recently renovated. I have been to several plays here and to the weekly screening of current art films. The new, plush seats are very comfortable and the beautiful architecture and decorative painting are remarkable.

Wonderful facility which would be even better if more effort were expended in staging dirrerent show more often. Hairspray was an exmple of what the theatre should be doing more
