This is the story of their enduring and tempestuous 45-year friendship, from the Civil War through the changing of the Constitution. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and today, they challenge and inspire us.

Last Stop on Market Street  
Children's Theatre Company Last Stop on Market Street
 
Six-year-old CJ is (reluctantly) staying with his (extremely over-the-top) Nana, in a world considerably different from the one he's used to (his phone and tablet). The disagreeable (and, let's just admit it, whiny) child is dragged on a bus ride that's loud and gritty and weird. Guided by his veritable force-of-nature Nana, CJ travels a little closer to his roots and sees that things are not always what they seem. This is one wild and crazy, hip-hop, eclectic, heart-thumpin', toe-tappin' joy ride.
   
Little Women  
Jungle Theatre Little Women
 
In the midst of the Civil War, the four March sisters are set on a journey from adolescence to adulthood. Staying true to the spirit of the popular novel - "a surprisingly modern work that has aged well" (UNC Press Blog) - the intergenerational play hones in on the intersection of home life, work and true love, and its power to shape each sibling's desire to be true to herself and find her way in the world. The fast-paced, heartfelt adaptation breathes new life into this timeless coming of age story.

Featuring all the classic tunes, chimney sweeps, and spoons-full-of- sugar you know and love, Mary Poppins is equally perfect for a nostalgic date night for two and an all-family theater outing.
