Thursday through Saturday, Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown will be debuting a new musical, 3XL: The Musical, composed by one of its faculty members. The hilarious show touches on the vain ideals of Hollywood and asks the audience, “What is true beauty?” Performing in the Joseph S. Koury Hospitality Careers Center, the show highlights two chefs who want to start their own cooking show but are told they’re too heavy for TV. A second run of the show performs April 10-12.

Thursday through Tuesday, music lovers will enjoy a series of events by our local orchestras.

Sunday and Tuesday, Winston- Salem Symphony and Greensboro Symphony are performing together in concert. The show will include Don Quixote and will also feature guest artist and top cellists Zuill Bailey. Performances are at Wait Chapel on the campus of Wake Forest University.

Thursday and Friday at noon, symphony enthusiasts can attend a fun and informative pre-concert lunch with one of the orchestra maestros and other artists. The luncheon will take place at The Piedmont Club at 200 West Second Street in downtown Winston-Salem and is a great opportunity to learn more about the upcoming concert in a relaxed atmosphere.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 724-7077. Club membership is not required.

The Elephant Man by The Bakers Dozen theater is opening April 10 at The Enrichment Center in Winston- Salem. The serious drama is based on the life of John Merrick, a horribly deformed man who lived at the London Hospital during the Victorian era.

The play explores what it means to be “normal” in modern society. Show runs through April 13.

Still making its way into our playbill is Barn Dinner Theatre’s long-running Church Basement Ladies: A Second Helping, a humorous musical about what it’s like growing up as a Lutheran in the 1950s. As always, a ticket to the performance includes a pre-show buffet dinner. Performances run through April 27.
