Do you like birthdays? How about Greensboro? If you’re an entertainer and you answered “yes” to both those questions, the Greensboro Bicentennial Commission wants to hear from you. The group is currently recruiting performers for the Heritage Festival scheduled for the weekend of April 12. Send your info to Grassroots Productions, c/o Lynn Donovan, at PO Box 29212, Greensboro, NC 27429, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d rather be in the audience than onstage, consider this item I missed last week: The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is producing The Foreigner, starting on Thursday and continuing through the weekend. Tickets prices vary; visit littletheatreonline.com for more information.
Students in the upper school (that’s high school, commoner) at Westchester Country Day will present Web of Murder this weekend. The play, which opens Friday, was written by Jonathan Troy and concerns the murder of an irritable old bag. Tickets are only $5 per person.
In Greensboro, there’s another opening at the Weatherspoon. The Lining of Forgetting opens Friday with special performances by artist Pablo Helguera and memory master Scott Hagwood. The performance starts at 7 p.m. sharp, afterward, from 8 to 10, members of the public are welcome to partake in a free reception.
The Children’s Theatre of Winston-Salem welcomes the Walltown troupe from Durham on Tuesday at Wednesday. The group will perform the play Waiting for Martin in honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Black History Month. The play is an original work about three homeless teens in rural Alabama who are waiting for Dr. King.
Also on Tuesday, the Weatherspoon will hold a Noon at the ‘Spoon event with free baked goods provided by Great Harvest Bread Company, beverages and docent-led tours of recent exhibits. A social event will follow a 20-minute tour of a recent installation by the Lead Pencil Studio.
