Center Info

Welcome to the Allan and Laura Wilson Humanities and Fine Arts Center: Cape Fear Community College’s arts hub and southeastern North Carolina’s most talked-about new attraction.

The Wilson Center boasts a grand performance hall­—all velvet and honey—designed with three floors that wrap the stage, creating excellent views for every guest. The height and drama of the space provoke a reverent and energizing feel. Whether seated in the Orchestra, Grand Tier, or Balcony, guests enjoy an intimate setting, and the feeling of being part of the show.

The Center’s mammoth three-story, glass-walled lobby can comfortably accommodate a crowd.  Whether our guests are checking in at Ticket Central, visiting one of our concessions counters, or relaxing under the trees in our courtyard, the Center’s spacious design will never feel cramped. Our trained Guest Services staff and volunteers will be with you all the way. We are committed to a culture of hospitality at the Center.  Our goal is to make your experience seamless and delightful. Be our guest!

Behind the big stage is our studio theater, which hosts professional and student performances meant for a smaller stage. In between are 25 rehearsal spaces, labs, and classrooms where CFCC arts students train and grow in world-class facilities, becoming what makes Wilmington a performing arts destination.

Far more than just a performing arts venue, the Center is a powerful investment in the arts for current and future students.

We have 1,500+ seats inside this hive, come see what all the buzz is about.
