Introducing the Opera Box Experience with Ruth’s Chris Steak House

The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is thrilled to announce it is raising the bar on its highest level of service with The Opera Box Experience with Ruth’s Chris Steak House, a brand-new partnership with Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Ruth’s Chris Steak House recently opened its new location in Downtown Wilmington on the third floor of River Place.

“We are so excited to welcome one of the most trusted and esteemed names in the hospitality sector to the Center,” said Shane Fernando, Former Vice President of Advancement at the Arts at Cape Fear Community College and Executive and Artistic Director at the Wilson Center, “Partnering with Ruth’s Chris Steak House will make our highest level of service, our opera boxes, even more special to those who have come to love the experience and delight those who may try it for the first time.”

The Opera Box Experience with Ruth’s Chris Steak House includes gourmet hors d’oeuvres hand-crafted by Ruth’s Chris Steak House, complimentary beverages, and a generous selection of sweet and savory treats, including fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. Other benefits include an incredible view of the stage, priority entry to the theater, a personal attendant, and privacy for you and your guests.

“We are delighted to partner with the Wilson Center and be a part of our Wilmington theater community,” said Stephanie Birkmeyer, Private Dining and Catering Sales Manager at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Wilmington.
