Girlyman, one of my all-time favorite shows at The ArtsCenter, is coming back tonight! Their banter between songs was hilarious, and I think they improvised a song about Barack Obama. Who knows what they will do this time! Click here for more details and to buy tickets, and click here to see more of my photos from the last Girlyman show.



Tylan Greenstein plays guitar and sings one part of a three-part harmony during Girlyman's last show at The Artscenter in December 2009.

Living Dead in Denmark

The Youth Performing Arts Conservatory kids have outdone themselves. This weekend they’re putting on a show that brings Shakespeare’s most famous characters back from the dead–with zombies!

Living Dead in Denmark, a comic book fantasia, throws Shakespeare’s most beloved characters including Ophelia, Juliet (both back from the dead), Lady M, Puck, Titania and Horatio into an us-versus-zombies apocalyptic scenario.  Mixing martial arts, horror movies and comic books, Living Dead in Denmark is the perfect storm of Halloween theatre.  Intended for audiences 14 and up.

Shows are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. I got to go to rehearsal yesterday–check out a sneak peak and some outtakes below (don’t forget to click see more for more photos)! There are no captions, you have to go to the show to find out what’s happening!

The Monti

Filed under: Theater — Tags: , , , , , , , — Lisa Pepin @ 10:09 pm

The Monti returned to The ArtsCenter last night in front of a sold out crowd. Greg Taylor headlined a group of five storytellers who shared moments from their lives. Taylor made local and national headlines last February as the first person ever to be found innocent by the N.C. Innocence Inquiry Commission, the only state-run agency in the country that investigates claims of innocence.  In May, he received a full pardon from Governor Bev Perdue.  All this came after Taylor spent over seventeen years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit.

Photos from the night are below–more after the page break!

Hey ArtsLovers!

I’m back from a summer away! If you want to see some of the stuff I did this summer and some other really cool multimedia work from UNC students, check out It’s a collaboration to tell stories about places and personalities in the beautiful blue ridges of Little Switzerland, NC.

In May 2010, during the seventh annual Carolina Photojournalism Workshop, 19 students produced a diverse collection of stories that document life in and around the small mountain town of Little Switzerland, N.C. The base camp was located at Wild Acres, a beautiful retreat located on Pompey’s Knob, a mountain just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, at an altitude of 3,300 feet.

Situated on the edge of Pisgah National Forest, the area surrounding Little Switzerland boasts of all those things we love about western North Carolina, from scenic vistas and ancient forests to artisans and guitar-pickin’ heroes.

Cirque des Artes

Saturday marked The ArtsCenter’s 35th year in Carrboro. There was a live auction, live music from the Triangle Jazz Orchestra and a fantastic magician–all there to help keep the arts centered.

The ArtsCenter still needs your help! We need a new sound system, dance floor, roof repairs and a new coat of paint. Click here to find out more about the Keep the Arts Centered Campaign and how you can help.

The Monti with Elizabeth Edwards

The last time The Monti came to The ArtsCenter, Lyndsay got to shoot it and raved about it to me. So when I saw The Monti on the calendar, I was excited! Five story-tellers, including Elizabeth Edwards, shared unscripted memories on the theme of “Mothers & Fathers”–photos are below (click “more” to get the full view). For future Monti events, click here.

Coming up next in theater at The ArtsCenter: Eurydice, running May 13-23 Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., 3 p.m. Sundays.


Elizabeth Edwards takes the stage to talk about her parents.
