The Wilson Center
Prominently located on Third St. at the northern entrance to historic downtown Wilmington, The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College will add a major new performance venue to southeastern North Carolina. This impressive new facility will further enhance the quality of life for local residents and will increase Wilmington’s reputation as a major cultural destination in the region.
The educational wing of the facility provides students with a modern learning environment so they can explore and develop their talents in the humanities and fine arts. The educational wing features three floors of studios and classrooms for the visual and performing arts. Other features including a scene shop, dressing rooms, and a black box theater serve students and professionals alike allowing all to grow as artists and performers.
In addition to providing the highest quality instructional spaces for CFCC’s students, the building features a state-of-the-art, 1,500-seat performance hall; the largest in the area. Designed to accommodate Broadway caliber shows, concerts, symphonic performances, recitals, symposiums, and other events, the center offers professional-quality lighting systems, rigging, acoustics and orchestra equipment. The performance hall boasts two tiers of balconies and two levels of side boxes for a variety of seating options.
