Upcoming shows and events
A Piece of My Heart. May 5 – 21. Historical drama. A powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: nurses, a Red Cross volunteer and a USO country-western singer. The latter is booked to entertain the troops by an unscrupulous agent. Follow each young woman’s story before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation. It was named “The most enduring play on Vietnam in the nation,” by The Vietnam Vets Association.
Downrange: Voices from the Homefront. May 26 & 27. Written by Chapel Hill playwright Mike Wiley, this play investigates the effect of deployment on the families who are left behind by weaving together the often-overlooked stories of real North Carolina military families.
Grounded. May 27 & 28. The story of a hotshot fighter pilot who has to give up flying due to an unexpected pregnancy. She is assigned to fly drones instead, and must juggle the dual realities of killing terrorists by day and going home to her family at night.
Avenue Q. June 2 – 18. Recent college grad, Princeton, moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. Along with his new friends, Princeton struggles to find a job, date, and discover an ever-elusive purpose in life. Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, this truly unique show has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Appropriate for Adult Audiences.
