Continuing through Sunday, Community Theatre of Greensboro and RBC Wealth Management present Cabaret, a Tony Award-winning show, at CTG on Elm Street. Set in 1930s Berlin, the musical features such famous songs as “Willkommen” and “Cabaret.”

Also continuing, now through March 30, is a special production at Triad Stage, Reverse Psychology, in which two psychiatrists, married to each other, and two patients, also married to each other, go on a romantic vacation — with truth serum.

Wednesday and Thursday, Greensboro College Opera students perform art songs and arias, as well as two short scenes from Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Medium and the 10-minute collaborative opera A Hand of Bridge, in the Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center in the Odell Building on campus. The performances are free and open to the public.

Also beginning Wednesday, No Rules Theatre Company continues its “season of laughter” with the comic farce Black Comedy, in which a desperate sculptor, hoping to impress his fiancé’s father and a potential patron, “borrows” a few antiques from his absent neighbor.

After a fuse blows in his apartment, plunging them all into darkness just as the neighbor arrives home, there is a hilarious race against time to set things right before the lights come back on. Play runs at Hanesbrands Theatre through April 7.

Saturday, the all-male singing group and the official singing organization of Morehouse College, the Morehouse College Glee Club, will be in concert at Bennett College at 7 p.m. Free and open to the public, the concert will be performed in the historic Annie Merner Pfeiffer Chapel.

Sunday, University of North Carolina School of the Arts presents An Afternoon at the Opera, an undergraduate opera workshop in which members perform one-act operas, at de Mille Theatre, Performance Place on the UNCSA campus.

Tickets are free.

Coming up next week, GTCC’s Jamestown campus will perform its first musical, 9 to 5: The Musical, a hilarious tale of female friendship and revenge, in the on-campus Fine Arts Theatre April 4-6, 11-13.

Later that week, Touring Theatre of North Carolina, will visit Triad Stage’s UpStage Cabaret for productions of Todd Johnson’s The Sweet By and By, a novel that captures the voice of Southern women, while portraying the challenges of the elderly.
