“The City of Wilmington and Thalian Hall are working on a series of repairs, renovations, and upgrades including the roof, HVAC System, stage floor, dressing rooms, and lobby entrance of the building,” said Tony Rivenbark, Executive Director of Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts.  “This work will occur in phases, which have begun this year and will continue through mid-year 2021.  This renovation project has necessitated a period of down time on the Main Stage for early spring of 2020.  We’re dedicated to preserving this cultural crowning gem for generations to come.”

“Thalian Hall is our home and we are very excited about the renovations being planned for the building, and we are appreciative of the investment that the City and Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts board and management are making in this historic treasure,” said Susan Habas, Executive Director of Thalian Association Community Theatre. “In the meantime, we are eager for audiences to experience Guys & Dolls and Elton John & Tim Rice’s Aida at Kenan Auditorium – another great community stage.”
