Now Playing Onstage in Charlotte - Week of 2/09/2014 ONCE UPON A MATTRESS
St. David's School
2/13-2/15/2014
The 'G2K' Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are, you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again. In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger actors and audiences, but all the magic, hilarity and fun of the original are still in place. G2K? ONCE UPON A MATTRESS is the perfect show to introduce young people to the magic of live theater. PLEASE NOTE: All schools wishing to peruse or perform a G2K musical should apply through theMusic by Mary Rodgers; Book by Jay Thompson & Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by Marshall Barer; Adapted by Tom Briggs

Now Playing Onstage in Charlotte - Week of 2/09/2014 SUMMER AND SMOKE
Old Courthouse Theater
2/6-2/23/2014
One of Tennessee William's most highly regarded works! A play that is profoundly affecting, set in Glorious Hill, Mississippi at the turn of the century, SUMMER AND SMOKE is a simple love story of a somewhat puritanical Southern girl and an unpuritanical young doctor. Each is basically attracted to the other but can they over come their divergent attitudes toward life to find love and happiness together?

Now Playing Onstage in Charlotte - Week of 2/09/2014 SOME ENCHANTED EVENING - THE SONGS OF RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN
Central Piedmont Community College
2/14-2/23/2014
More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective shows, and we teach them to our children. This stunning collection of compositions places five performers in a theatrical setting-first 'backstage,' where the songs are sung as personal interplay, and then 'onstage.' While offering the performers an opportunity to explore the songs within their own styles and sensibilities, it offers the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Concept by Jeffrey B. Moss; For Jerry Kravat Entertainment Services, Inc.

Now Playing Onstage in Charlotte - Week of 2/09/2014 SHREK THE MUSICAL
Central Academy of Technology and Arts Theatre
2/14-2/23/2014
SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre - not a handsome prince - shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek. The Union County Performance Ensemble is comprised of students from all 11 Union County Public Schools High Schools. All performances will be held at Central Academy of Technology and Arts in Monroe, NC. SHREK is appropriate for all ages! All audience members requiring a seat will need a ticket. Ticket sales will cut off at 5:00 on Thursday (2/13 and 2/20) before each weekend's performances and all remaining tickets will be sold at the door.
