Synetic Theater: Cyrano de Bergerac

7:00PM at Martinsville High School Auditorium

The Washington Post says Synetic Theater's wordless adaptation of this literary classic "frolics in jewel tones, with movement, dance, ingenious prop use and piquant stage business teasing out the story."

A brilliant poet and soldier, Cyrano de Bergerac apparently has it all — except the confidence to win the heart of his beloved Roxane. Lacking traditional good looks and the ability to truly fit in, Cyrano partners with his handsome friend Christian, also in love with Roxane, but lacking Cyrano’s way with words. Together, the two make a formidable suitor as Cyrano expresses his true feelings for Roxane in the only we he feels he can — through love letters apparently written by Christian.

Music in the Art Garden

2:00PM at Gravely-Lester Art Garden

Enjoy classical music in the Art Garden with a performance by The Alma Ensemble. Bring a lawn chair of blanket for seating.

The Alma Ensemble was founded by flutist Sarah Wardle Jones, clarinetist Michelle Smith Johnson and pianist Erica Sipes. It was birthed from a desire to create music that is empowering and resonant. The group places a high priority on playing music by other women composers, and is named in recognition of Alma Mahler, a composer who never received the opportunities afforded to the male composers with whom she was romantically linked. Alma also means “nourishment” or “soul” which is something the ensemble endeavors to bring to every performance.

Admission Free

Bus to Broadway: Wicked


"A Broadway Classic" - The New York Times

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.

WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”

The Bus to Broadway leaves Piedmont Arts at 5 pm for a 7:30 pm at Durham Performing Arts Center. A boxed dinner is available for purchase in advance. Guests may brink snacks to enjoy on the bus.
