[PLAYBILL]

This week is another great week for some clean family fun—a perfect way to get everyone together for Mother’s Day. Not only are the ongoing plays familyfriendly, but there’s also a few youth acting opportunities.

Community Theatre of Greensboro continues its production of Fiddler on the Roof, a musical comedy-drama, this week through May 17. The play centers on a man and his five daughters as he tries to instill and maintain his Jewish values and traditions. On Sunday, the theater will host a special home-cooked Eastern European Jewish dinner in addition to the performance.

Thursday, UNC School of the Arts presents works by its third-year film students in the UNCSA Main Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

On Friday, UNCSA will continue its series with a presentation of the works by its fourth-year film students.

Piedmont Players Theatre in Salisbury is hosting a youth musical audition workshop and Tarzan auditions on Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The workshop will focus on preparing students to audition for PPT’s upcoming musical; so all skill levels are welcome to participate. The show dates are July 9-18.

On Monday and Tuesday, PPT will be auditioning actors for Ain’t Misbehavin’, a tribute to black musicians of the 1920s and ‘30s.

Speaking of Tarzan, new on Friday, Theatre Alliance presents Tarzan: The Stage Musical. The classic story of a young boy raised by a family of gorillas is rated PG for mild violence. Show continues through May 17.

Coming soon is Twin City Stage’s Vanya, Sonia, Masha and Spike, a play for mature audiences, which depicts three sisters, one of which has escaped their hometown and returned with a boy toy. Play begins on May 29 and is the last show of the theater’s 80 th season. A pair of surprise tickets to the show would make a nice save-the-date for a belated Mother’s Day gift…because Moms are women (and adults) too. !
