RED BARN STUDIO THEATRE
The Thalian Association presents select performances at downtown Wilmington’s Red Barn Studio Theatre. The small, 50-seat theater was once run by former Wilmington resident and actress, Linda Lavin, who transferred over stewardship of the theater in 2012 when she moved to live in New York full time. The theater underwent renovations in 2013 and reopened to hold performances for the Thalian Association’s children’s theater and other community productions.
