CTC’s home base is the black box space at Opera Delaware Studios, located on the Wilmington waterfront. The theater is just blocks from the Amtrak train station and right off Interstate 95. The waterfront area is home to a diverse population reflected in the community’s arts, culture, and nightlife.

Please note that ticket sales at the door are cash or check only. We do not have access to an ATM in our building. We encourage patrons to buy their tickets online ahead of time with our secure box office.
