Feminist Flea Market IN Wilmington

According to statistics from the National Museum of Women in the Arts, women earn between 65-75% of all the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in the United States.

Lend Us an Ear: 'Lend Me a Tenor' is a Heckuva Hit!

Lend Me a Tenor (running at Candlelight Theatre now through June 23) is a six-door farce by prolific playwright Ken Ludwig.

And cheesecake (thanks to the pin-up contest)…lots and lots of cheesecake.

CTC Pub Plays

Twenty-five years ago, a group of young, bright-eyed actors were eager to start their own theatre company here IN Wilmington but had no space to perform. A frequent haunt of this ragtag group of performers and theatre lovers was O’Friel’s Irish Pub, formerly located on Market Street. The group approached the bar’s owner, Kevin Freel, told him their story and made their case for the opportunity to perform at his bar. Kevin saw the passion for the arts dripping from these young people and allowed them to perform at O’Friel’s. Thus, both the City Theater Company and the Pub Plays were born...
