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."

Encore Magazine

"The Sound of Music"

"It's a heck of a way to kick off a season. OHTC's The Sound of Music is an utterly enchanting experience."

 

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."

Encore Magazine

"Mamma Mia"

"If this is the start of musical theatre in 2019, I am on board for the ride.  I haven't had this much fun at a show in a very long time," 

 

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."
