Are there any NC coastal cities with lots of theatre? I want to move out of the desert and am looking for a warm climate on the coast with a lot of theatre opportunities - regional, community, etc., etc.

Umm... that would be Wilmington.

(Of course, that depends on what you mean by "a lot"... in comparison to,say....Boston? But I still think Wilmington is probably your best bet - with the film industry being there, too, it's a pretty "theatric" city.)


These are the two of the main areas of action:

Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., Wilmington, NC

Level 5 at City Stage

New Bern has two community theaters. Lots of local support, too.

Default Wilmington film / movie / theater type culture

Questions often pop up about the film / movie making / theater environment in Wilmington. The town's cultural offerings do include a good number of live theaters, many putting on original plays. And yup, Wilmington is the second busiest permanent movie filming soundstage location after Hollywood.

Quite a bit of independent film making going on here too. The local paper info site (the newspaper calls it myreporter.com) even posted a page with details on an independent film festival happening here annually:

What is the Cucalorus Film Festival | MyReporter.com
has info on the film festival, along with some answers to questions on our local television filming industry as well, like "how do I get on One Tree Hill?"
