The Real Thing

Aug 7, 2015

Thalian Association (TA) has spent the summer staging plays at the intimate theatre on 3rd Street, the Red Barn Studio Theatre.  The offerings have been different than the popular musicals TA often produces; instead, thoughtful and sometimes intense dramas have been on the ticket.

Director Anthony Lawson and actor Katherine Vernon (Martha) discuss the award-winning play by Edward Albee, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?  The Thalian Association presents this play as a part of their summer series at the Red Barn Studio Theatre downtown.   In addition to Katherine Vernon, other actors include Ron Hasson (George), Hal Cosec (Nick) and Maria Katsadouros (Honey).

"Singin'" Goes on, Despite the Sunshine

May 29, 2015

Singin' In the Rain by Thalian Association is performing 3 more times this weekend.  Based on the more-than-usual rain we've seen in our region in recent times, it's a show we can all appreciate.  Wilmington is predicted to boast fair skies this weekend, which is a great time to visit your local theatre.  After you've soaked up all the sunshine you can take, "Singin' in the Rain" might be a most refreshing treat.

Thalian Association Community Theatre hosts a benefit concert called "It Takes Two, Take Two: Songs From the Silver Screen." It features great music from the movies, performed by adult and youth pairs in a wonderful collaboration. It was so successful last year (originally called "It Takes Two: Songs from the Great White Way), that creator/director Mike Thompson was inspired to stage something similar again. Mike was today's guest,  along with dancer and Youth Host Kegan Dubar; a junior at New Hanover County High School.

Today's guests, director Anthony Lawson and actress Claire Bennett, discussed the upcoming performance of "Good People"  at Thalian Association's Red Barn Studio. Performances will run from August 7 through August 30,  Thursdays-Sundays. For more information visit thalian.org.

Thalian Association presents the Leonard Bernstein musical Wonderful Town. Guest host Gina Gambony spoke with two integral members of the show. The lively interview even feature some lovely singing, be sure to listen to this unique Midday Interview!

Wonderful Town runs May 15-25th at Thalian Hall. More information on the show and to purchase tickets visit the Thalian Association's website
