The ArtsCenter Photoblog

July 22, 2010


There are a ton of exciting things going on this week as the ArtsCenter. First up is the Summer Youth Preforming Arts Conservatory’s performance of Drood: The Musical.  The Summer Youth Conservatory is a collaboration between the ArtsCenter and Playmakers Repertory Company, the professional  theater company at UNC.  It pairs talented young theater students with professional directors, choreographers and designers. Five weeks of classes cumulated in a staged production.

Based on the unfinished novel by Charles Dickens, Drood is a Tony Award winning musical in which the audience participates in solving a murder mystery.  I got to sit in on two rehearsals this week and these kids are really talented and the show is a lot of fun. You won’t want to miss it. Check out a few rehearsal photos below and be sure to go see the show, which runs through Sunday.

ArtsCamp 2010

Filed under: ArtSchool, Kids — Lyndsay Booth @ 9:44 pm

ArtsCamp 2010 is in full swing for local children of all ages.  Students are exercising their creative skills in all different fields of art from comic book drawing to sculpture making to dance and fashion.  Several camps recently ended and students held a sharing day to show off to friends and family what they had been working so hard on over the past week or two. Take a  look below for some photos. Some camps are still open. Check out more information here or contact The ArtsCenter.

The entire class contributed making this pot.

You will defiantly be sad if you don’t get a chance to see this show.  The Festival features ten 10 minute plays by playwrights from around the world. For more information about the Festival check out this fabulous article in the Daily Tar Heel. And a little late, here is your next preview photo. No captions thought.
