Wilmington has many options for enjoying a night out on the town, no matter your preference. In the summer, you could tune your ear to the sweet sounds of music while enjoying a nice, cold beverage at the Downtown Sundown Concert Series that features both local performers and touring bands and is set right in the midst of downtown Wilmington, NC in front of the Courthouse. Another option is Greenfield Lake Ampitheater, which hosts a variety of shows, ranging from Shakespeare performances to concerts by well-known artists such as Matishayu. For a calendar of events for theater performances, be sure to click on Thalian Hall's calendar of events: not only do they bring in national talent, they also feature local artists from Wilmington and the surrounding areas, performing a variety of productions ranging from Hairspray and Cinderella to Aladdin and Oliver! The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College, Wilmington's newest performing arts venue is built for Broadway touring productions, symphonic performances, concerts, and more; they have already brought in the So You Think You Can Dance Tour back in October of 2017.
