TESTIMONIALS

STAR NEWS

"Footloose"

" ...... a knockout cast  performs the choreography of Kennedy and Carson Hobbs with aplomb. Music director Brian Whitted's band crushes the rock score, and Terry Collins' substantial set captures everything from a gritty railroad overpass to a light-drenched church sanctuary."

STAR NEWS

"Newsies"

"Newsies feels like one of the most "Broadway" productions OHTC has ever staged in its 35-plus-year history .... and the cast of young dancers absolutely shines during multiple dance sequences, bringing down Thursday night's packed house several times."

 

Talkin' Broadway

"Funny Girl"

" For those who cannot venture to the Big Apple, the production in Wilmington is a worthy alternative."  

 

STAR NEWS

"Funny Girl"

" .... Funny Girl continues to resonate nearly 60 years after its Broadway debut. That was made clear on Saturday night, when the audience for a packed-house performance sang "People" right along with the cast during curtain call. "

WECT

"La Cage aux Folles"

"Audiences are calling it a “must see” show! Jeff Phillips, stars as Albin/Zaza, in a show-stopping performance. Richard White, the original Gaston from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, plays Georges and Cullen Moss, puts forth a hilarious performance as the couple’s butler/maid Jacob."

 

Cultural Voice of North Carolina 

"The Diary of Anne Frank"

 

"Opera House Theatre Company has done a service by performing this play, partly this is because it was done so successfully.... The artistry of Opera House Theatre Company has done Wilmington, Anne Frank, and people of good will, a genuine service." 

Encore Magazine

"42nd Street"

"Opera House can at times be seen as something of a big shark in our small pond here in Wilmington. When they produce shows like this, it’s easy to see why."

STAR NEWS

"Always... Patsy Cline"

"The show is about as well done as a crowd-pleasing musical homage to a legend can be. Technically, the show is nearly flawless...the band sounds like it could’ve been plucked straight from Nashville... the sound design by John Deveaux and Chris Dean is pristine."
