Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


The ArtsCenter’s holiday production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory continues tonight at 8pm. In case you aren’t familar with the story, five children, Veruca Salt, Mike TV, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, and of course Charlie Bucket spend a day at Mr. Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I sat in on dress rehearsal Wednesday and it was fantastic. You aren’t going to want to miss it. It will remind you why you fell in love with the story as a child and have your kids falling in love with it too. Check back throughout the week for more preview photos. No captions though. You have to come to the show!

Looks like Santa has found a new favorite band- The Allen Boys. The ArtsCenter hosted a series of tailgates prior to UNC football games at University Mall this fall. Check out some shots of the final concert featuring The Allen Boys, courtesy of Tess Mangum Ocana, the ArtsCenter’s concert director. The Allen Boys are a North Carolina based Southern Sacred Steel band and can next be seen at the ArtsCenter during the Southern Sacred Steel Festival, March 17-20, 2011.

Happy Thanksgiving!
