If you’re looking for some indoor, air-conditioned, entertainment, this week is full of exciting opening nights.

Wednesday is opening night for No Rules Theatre Company’s production of Peter Pan: The Boy Who Hated Mothers, a visceral retelling of the classic, which runs through April 7 at Hanesbrands Theatre.

Thursday, Triad Stage introduces its fundraising event Broadway on Elm, which includes a presentation of When Everything was Possible, a musical memoir about two kids who go to New York with hopes of becoming stars.

Bennett College presents the brutally hilarious The Most Massive Woman Wins Thursday through Sunday. As four women await liposuction, they explore varying perceptions of body image.

Twin City Stage presents the dramatic, yet zany Crimes of the Heart, a tale of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions, Friday through Sunday and March 29-April 1.

Also on Friday, Theatre Alliance gives its opening night performance of Violet, which runs through Sunday, and then again March 28-April 1. Set during the Civil Rights Movement, the powerful and energetic play follows the emotional and physical journey of a young, scarred woman traveling from North Carolina to Oklahoma. Along the way, a black soldier teaches her about love and courage.

UNCG’s dance department will be equally busy Friday with its concert “The Light by Which We Remember,” which continues through Saturday. The athletic, yet tender performance will have the audience questioning their own process of remembering.

Saturday, Carolina Theatre will host a dance performance by Greensboro Ballet.

UNCG Theatre begins its performance of Man and Superman Tuesday in the Brown Building Theatre. The romantic comedy runs through April 1.

Triad Stage’s UpStage Cabaret continues to rock to the rhythm of Tick, Tick, Boom, a musical autobiography, which runs until March 31. Written by Jonathan Larson, the creator of Rent, the play tells the story of a man who struggles in New York City while trying to write a musical.

Community Theatre of Greensboro continues its salacious musical, Avenue Q, at the Broach Theatre now through April 1. This fun-loving play, which uses human and puppet actors, gives an adult twist to “Sesame-Street.”
