Three of Creative District Wilmington's city-wide mural projects have been huge successes, spanning the communities from Westside to Riverside.

Delaware Shakespeare Festival Henry V

In his time, William Shakespeare became the toast of London theater circles by pleasing critics and the masses with popular plays which contained exceptional turns of phrases. Centuries later, his words remain steeped in the English lexicon. But did you know The Bard was also a motivational speaker? Actually, he wasn’t…but he wrote some extremely stirring speeches...

This stage adaptation of the 2010 UK children’s novel by Jacqueline Wilson currently coming to life at Delaware Theatre Company, is just about as perfect a musical as could be.
