This Monday tickets go on sale for the first production of The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem under its new name, or rather old name. LTWS has now reverted to its original name opposed to its most recent Twin City Stage. The vibrant family musical, Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, is just in time for the Easter season as it highlights the life of Biblical Joseph and how he persevered betrayal and rose thanks to his faith. Production opens March 31.

Barn Dinner Theatre continues to include the audience in its fun and games this week through March 31 with its production of Bingo, The Winning Musical. In between playing their own games of bingo, the audience will witness three best friends and die-hard bingo players who rekindle their friendship after making it through a terrible storm for the annual bingo celebration.

Don’t miss the exciting multimedia production in the Hanesbrands Theatre this Thursday through Sunday. Helen Simoneau Danse will present a beautifully choregraphed dance performance with digital projections as a backdrop and live music by the band, Must be the Holy Ghost.

Also new this week is the Greensboro Children’s Theatre production of The Princess and the Magic Pea, which runs Friday through Sunday in the Odell Auditorium at Greensboro College. The lively musical version of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale features more than 30 young actors.

Next week, famed comedians Vince Morris, BT and Billy D. Washington celebrate individualism rather than differences as they unite on stage at High Point Theatre on Saturday, March 25. You might have seen them on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime or other networks, as each has had a successful career.

Next Friday, Theatre Alliance of Winston-Salem will highlight the life of a legendary singer and song-writer in its production of Hank Williams: Lost Highway.

Also coming soon is Open Space Café Theatre’s production of Stop Kiss, a romantic comedy and thought-provoking drama in which two women kiss in a public park and are transformed by the violent attack that follows. Production runs March 30-April 9.
