New this week, beginning Friday, is Theatre Alliance’s production of Blood Brothers, a musical about a struggling woman who gives one of her newborn twin boys to the woman whose house she cleans. Even though they grow up apart unknowing of their relation, the boys become friends and fall in love with the same girl.
Theatre Alliance is hosting a familyfriendly block party on Saturday to celebrate its upcoming production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

On that same Tuesday and Wednesday Piedmont Players Theatre will also hold auditions for its Hands on a Hardbody, a musical based on the film of the same name. Don’t let the title fool you into thinking the musical is risqué—they’re talking about the hard body of a truck.
