Wilson Center Cape Fear Stage Memberships

The Wilson Center relies on the annual support of our Cape Fear Stage members to make possible the many endeavors we pursue in support of our mission, including:

  • Providing CFCC students with real-world training and employment opportunities in a world-class performing arts facility
  • Offering dynamic educational and community engagement programs, such as our MOVE! Dance Series. Through MOVE!, we are able to provide our community’s most vulnerable youth and senior citizens with access to high-quality arts education and performances.
  • Waiving our base rental fee for New Hanover and Pender County public school programs
  • Offering the lowest possible rental costs for our resident companies, including the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra, City Ballet, Wilmington Ballet Company, Wilmington Choral Society, Wilmington Conservatory of Fine Arts, and the North Carolina Symphony
  • Presenting performances that feature world-renowned artists, such as Tony Bennett, ZZ Top, Gladys Knight, and hit Broadway tours
