Dear Thalian Friend,
We hope you will consider joining or donating to Thalian Association Community Theatre, the Official Community Theatre of North Carolina, for our 235th year of providing exciting theatrical performances and arts education to the Cape Fear Region. Local community theatre and arts education are thriving and reaching more people than ever, thanks to your unwavering support!
Thalian Association Community Theatre (TACT) truly enhances the quality of life in the Cape Fear Region. Any support given is guaranteed to work hard for our company and support our mission on and off stage. Here are some of our programs to support the culture of our community:
- Five productions at historic Thalian Hall and five youth theatre productions at the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center
- Youth Theatre special school performances for designated area Title 1 elementary schools and middle schools with Sensory Friendly performances for NHCS students in the Specially Designed Academics program
- Orange Street ArtsFest, a downtown Wilmington tradition since 1995
- Management of the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center for the City of Wilmington
- Creative Arts Camp for ages 4 – 17 every summer at the HBHUSO/Community Arts Center
- Host the N. C. Azalea Festival Youth Art Contest and Divine Divas, a fundraiser to benefit TACT & She ROCKS
I don’t know when we have been more excited about a new season! The tagline says it perfectly – Must See Theatre! We will return to Main Stage Thalian Hall with a true cultural phenomenon, the Tony-Award winning A Chorus Line, followed by the holiday production, family favorite Elf the Musical. Next up is the beloved play Steel Magnolias, and our spring production will be fun for the whole family – Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The season finale is a long-awaited Wilmington premiere, The SpongeBob Musical.
The Youth Theatre season on the 2nd Street Stage at the Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center is equally exciting; The Sound of Music: Youth Edition, Best Christmas Pageant Ever, Disney Pixar Finding Nemo Jr., Dreamworks Madagascar the Musical Jr., and Disney’s Freaky Friday. I hope you will review the 2023-2024 ticket packages and make plans to join us at the theatre! Purchasing a ticket package not only supports our operating expenses but saves money for you too!
The demands for your generosity are many, and were it not for individuals such as yourself, Wilmington would be a different place. Thank you for supporting Thalian Association, the Official Community Theatre of North Carolina!
