DTC is always a great night out. The current show, White Guy on the Bus is excellent-moving, poignant, timely, and sure to stimulate discussion. Great script and wonderful acting. See it.

Just took the family here for A Christmas Carol. We loved this version. This take on this classic play was hysterical. 5 actors/actresses and 2 puppet masters. All played multiple characters, except the actor that portrayed Scrooge. The ladies who played the 1st and 2nd spirits really played the roles to the funniest hilt. Loved how they used the same...

We went to the Delaware Theatre Company to see the play A Christmas Carol. It was fantastic! They made it comical with some unexpected twists and turns! The acting was superb as well as the special effects! I would recommend this play to everyone! They also served complimentary hot chocolate and cookies during intermission.

We started going to individual plays and found that they were so good that we bought season tickets. To begin ,every seat in the house has a great view of the stage. Second, the choice of performances is outstanding. Third, the directing and acting are both superb. I cannot say enough other than urge you to give it a try.

Recently, we attended a show with two of our daughters. It was a great show and it happened to have been on my wife's birthday. Not only did we have adequate parking next door, and it was free, but at the end of the show when the cast took their bows, they acknowledged my wife's birthday! That gesture alone was... More

We have been annual subscribers for 20+ years. A great little theatre with good shows and free parking. Can't beat the price and service to switch dates when needed.
