Local History
Thalian Hall
North Carolina


Wilmington - North Carolina - US


WILMINGTON, N.C. - Sept. 2, 2014 - PRLog -- Thalian Hall is one of the oldest and most beautiful theaters in America. Forming the east wing of Wilmington’s iconic city hall, this dual-purpose building has been at the center of the community’s cultural and political life since it first opened in 1858. Thalian Hall is the only surviving theater designed by John Montague Trimble, one of America’s foremost 19th-century theater architects. It was built at a time when Wilmington was the largest city in North Carolina.

Thalian Hall is the embodiment of a tradition of performance that stretches back for over two centuries. It has hosted Shakespearean tragedies, musical concerts, and even boxing and wrestling events. For generations, Wilmington audiences have witnessed touring stars, local actors, musicians, dancers, and movies in a parade of performances and celebratory events. The story of Thalian Hall is an embroidered tapestry reflecting the history of the American theater and the community that built it.
