The Last Post :(

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lyndsay Booth @ 5:19 pm

After 147 posts and 815 photos, The ArtsCenter photoblog’s run on WordPress is coming to an end. The ArtsCenter transitioned to a new website and will no longer be hosting this blog. But never fear, a new photoblog will operate off the new website. To see new blog entries, go to the ArtsCenter’s website, and click on the “Blog” tab on the right. A box will drop down showing you a stream of the latest blog posts. With the new blog, instead of scrolling down the page, the pictures will rotate by themselves! How cool is that? I’ll also add a link to this blog, which will still stay up, so you can revisit old memories.

Thanks for sticking with us! Be sure to check out the new site!

Girlyman

The ArtsCenter recently welcomed Girlyman back to the Carrboro. I didn’t make this show, but last year was great, and I am sure this one was even better. Check out some photos below, kindly submitted by audience member Chris Donald. They are some great shots (using a telephoto, I think)

Filed under: Theater, Uncategorized — Tags: — Lyndsay Booth @ 6:53 pm

The  10 by 10 Festival begins tonight at the ArtsCenter!  Be sure to stop by this month and check it out! I saw a dress rehearsal last night and it was awesome. 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. To find out what is happening you have to go see the show. I’ll keep running a preview photo each week until the end of the show!

Eurydice

Filed under: Preview, Theater, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 5:08 pm

The ArtsCenter is pleased to present a modern production of Eurydice.

“The most magical love story of all time, this is a play for sighing and crying; singing out loud and dancing with abandon. A contemporary telling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth…but this time it’s from Eurydice’s point of view.”

Shows are May 13-15 and May 20-22 at 8pm and May 16 & 23 at 3pm. Tickets range from $10-$14.

Check out some photos of the cast in character below!

BattleField Band

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lyndsay Booth @ 9:30 pm

This past Saturday, the Scotish group Battlefield Band stopped by the ArtsCenter. Alex Forsyth, one of the photoblog’s best friends, was kind enough to share this photo. Battlfield Band has been together for over thirty years, but if for some reason the music thing stops working out perhaps a second career with the Rockettes?

Dear Companion Tour


Complete with some powerhouse vocals and the most extensive set I’ve ever seen at the Earl and Rhoda Wynn Theatre, the Dear Companion Tour stopped by the ArtsCenter last week. The tour, featuring Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore with Lizzy Ross, is raising awareness of the practice of mountain top removal coal mining, which was reflected in their set. The show was part of The American Roots Series which continues through June at the ArtsCenter. Check out some photos of the show below and as always, don’t forget to click more!

Stone Soup

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lyndsay Booth @ 3:43 pm

Last weekend at the ArtsCenter, children and their parents were treated to the delightful story of Stone Soup. The story follows a little mouse in her quest to find food on her way to the big city school. On her way she encounters several colorful characters and teaches them the value of cooperation and sharing. The mouse also learns the importance of family. Check below for some photos of the play presented by Rags to Riches. Don’t forget to click more!
The ArtsCenter usually hosts a children’s show once a month. This month’s show is Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players. There are two shows, one at 11 am and one at 2pm on Saturday, March 20th.

Love to Haiti

Filed under: Uncategorized — Lyndsay Booth @ 12:38 pm

Last Sunday, in celebration of Valentine’s Day and to lend a hand to a good cause, the ArtsCenter hosted a Love to Haiti Benefit Day. Visitors were able to enjoy to enjoy a little taste of activities the ArtsCenter normally offers, including painting, handbuilding, bookmaking and dancing lessons. All proceeds benefited Hearts with Haiti, an independent nonprofit organization in Raleigh. Hearts with Haiti sponsors three children’s homes in the country. Thanks to everyone who came out to make this event such a success! And as always, don’t forget to click more to see more great photos from this awesome event!
