Something Wicked This Way Comes reveals Shakespeare’s dark side. With scenes from plays such as Macbeth, Hamlet and the very Game of Thrones-esque Titus Andronicus, the evening showcases ghosts, witches and the truly bizarre from the mind of William Shakespeare.

There will be no livestream of this show.

Due to Guilford County’s mask mandate as of 8/26/21, all persons attending this event must wear a mask while in the building.

Working! The Musical
By Stephen Schwartz
Directed by Doug Brown

11/18 - 11/20 at 7:30pm
11/21 at 2:00pm
Pauline Theater in Hayworth Fine Arts Center

This musical, based off the 1974 book “Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do” by Studs Terkel, was written by Stephen Schwartz and includes music by Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers, James Taylor, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The musical features monologues and songs performed by a variety of working class folks, taken from the interviews in the book, and meant to compel the audience to look at the person behind the job. These characters portray the need to find dignity in even the most seemingly mundane employment, the reward of taking pride in one’s work, no matter how humble, and the legacies of parents either passing down professions from one generation to the next, or striving to enable better working lives for their children.

Free tickets will be available starting on October 28th.
