My guests were John Staton, Features Editor for the Star News, and Jeff Phillips, star of many Opera House Theatre Company shows. They told us all about tonight’s Third Annual Star News Media Theatre Awards.
Red carpet arrivals at Thalian Hall start at 7; the show begins at 8 – with Jeff as emcee of a full production that includes sets, lights, costumes, and an orchestra led by Lorene Walsh.
Tickets are $15, available at ThalianHall.com or from the box office at 632-2285.
The first annual Wilmington Theater Awards will honor its brightest stars tonight at Thalian Hall in downtown Wilmington. Modeled after the Tony Awards (sans paparazzi and red carpet fashion analysis), this awards show boasts impressive musical numbers, pokes fun at members of the theater community, and stars local luminaries as presenters (hint: Tony Award-winning Actress Linda Lavin and Mayor Bill Saffo, to name a few).
