Since its inception, Cape Fear Community College’s Wilson Center has committed to being a true community resource. From high school graduations to free-of-charge dance residency performances, the Center hosts thousands of young people and underserved community members — but that’s only the beginning!

Through the generosity of private donors and a grant program administered by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County, the Broadway for a Better World initiative provides free-of-charge tickets to the Wilson Center’s Cape Fear Stage PNC Broadway & Stars Series. The mission of this program is to make the theater experience and all of its associated benefits available to underserved populations, particularly young people under the age of eighteen.

Now Accepting Grant Applications!

Grants may be submitted for this cycle until 11:59pm on Friday, October 1, 2021.
