The Wilmington Drama League is beginning its 85th season of presenting quality theater. To mark the occasion and raise funds to continue the work started in 1933, many talented performers who spent some early years making magic here at WDL are coming to the Drama League for an extraordinary event!
HOMECOMING, A Star Studded Block Party features Aubrey Plaza (Ingrid Goes West, Legion, Parks and Rec), John Gallagher, Jr (HBO's Newsroom, The Belko Experiment, American Idiot, Spring Awakening - Tony winner), Carly Ciarrocchi (Universal Kids' Sprout House) and Rory Donovan (Broadway's Finding Neverland and Elf), along with a number of friends they met at WDL. Many still thrive and grow as artists, both locally and in places like Chicago, NYC and Los Angeles.
The afternoon/evening block party (beginning at 3 p.m.) will feature activities and fun for all ages, including a dance party with DJ Carly, which includes prizes and fun! Games and activities will feature fun for all. Music will continue with John Sr and June Gallagher, and bands Apache Trails and The Joe Trainor Trio. John Gallagher Jr will also be bringing his music for a set! Food and drink are available, including beer, wine and signature cocktail, and Backstage passes can be purchased which include access to the event lounge and after party WITH THE STARS!
Proceeds will benefit the Drama League, where these talented performers first discovered their love of acting and the place many describe as their "second home" growing up. The Drama League still has a vibrant children's wing, which has given thousands of area young people the opportunity to test and hone their acting, writing, technical and leadership skills throughout the years.
Tickets are $25 and include all performances and activities. Kids under 12 are free with adult. Backstage passes are $75. They include all activities and performances, plus event lounge access (food and soft drinks through the event) , drink ticket, after party and photo ops with the stars.
