About Delaware Theatre Company

Delaware Theatre Company creates theatre of the highest professional quality in Delaware and thereby enriches the vitality of the area through artistic programming, education, and community service. At its heart, theatre is community. By telling our stories, by shining a light on our shared experiences, theatre strengthens the bonds between us. Connects us. That's what community is about - and that's what we're about. Delaware Theatre Company has been connecting people for more than 40 years.

 

In 1979, Delaware Theatre Company found its first home in an abandoned firehouse in downtown Wilmington. After minor renovations funded by the city, individual donors and sweat equity, the company was ready to put on a show. From that very first day, the goal was to show that theatre—an ancient, powerful art form—could touch every human emotion. DTC has succeeded in doing so ever since. 

 

About Million Dollar Quartet

This worldwide smash-hit musical is inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. In December 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life with a treasure trove of the greatest standards of the 1950s including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” and “Hound Dog.” On this unforgettable night in rock and roll history, don’t miss your chance to be a fly on the wall.
