Wilmington's Premier Dinner Theater Experience

Your ticket to a TheatreNOW dinner show typically includes a show and a 3-course meal, often with a choice of two or more entrées (one of which will always be a vegetarian option). Our shows start at 7pm and typically run 2 hours with breaks for food course service. Doors open for seating at 6pm. At that time you will be shown to your seat, have your drink orders taken and served your appetizer course. With enough advanced noticed our kitchen is able to accommodate any particular dietary concerns or adjustments. Please make a note on your ticket order or call us at 910.399.3NOW (3669) for those adjustments. Also please make a note on your ticket order if you are celebrating a special event or for seating arrangements with other guests as we custom arrange our seating to accommodate party sizes on a per performance basis. All tickets are general admission seating. Beverages and service gratuity (for food service and beverages) are not included in your ticket price.
