The good people at Channel 6 ABC have some great things to say about The Playhouse on Rodney Square:
The Playhouse was built more than 100 years ago by The du Pont Company to provide world-class entertainment for the company's workers, "to provide the kind of cultural experiences that they were used to in other larger cities that they may have relocated from," says Executive Director Mark Fields, "it was part of an ongoing commitment that the du Pont family and the du Pont company have had to Wilmington."
Fields says the theatre's intimate setting is one of its biggest charms. There are just 1200 seats, "you're really in the same room with the performers and you can see the expressions on their face," says Fields, "you can feel the energy coming off the stage as an audience member, and the artist can feel it coming from the audience."
Mamma Mia is at the Playhouse March 4-6. Blue Man Group takes the stage March 18-20. For tickets and show times, go to www.DupontTheatre.com.
Incredible Broadway entertainment can be found right here in Downtown Wilmington.
