There aren’t many theater houses that have celebrated 70 seasons of consistent performances, but Children’s Theatre of Charlotte can boast this accolade as they wrap up season 69 and forge ahead to the next one.
This Friday, March 24th, CTC welcomes the award winning play, “Bud, Not Buddy”, adapted from a book by novelist Christopher Paul Curtis, about a kid surviving during the Great Depression.
“Bud’s story is one of hope and of courage,” Jerrell L. Henderson, Bud, Not Buddy director, said. “Moreover, Bud’s story is one that we can all relate to: the primal need for a family who loves and accepts you.”
Then two weeks later, CTC closes out with “Go Dog Go!”, written by Steven Dietz and Allison Gregory and adapted from the book by P.D. Eastman about a community of all sorts of, well, dogs.
“This script is powerful because it maintains the minimal level of text from the book while creating a Vaudeville-style of zaniness,” Adam Burke, artistic director, said. “Throughout this show, there’s music from a live band on stage and physical comedy to delight all ages of theatregoers.”
This performance makes it’s debut on Friday, April 7th. While the folks over at CTC are busy with these last two shows, they’re also preparing for an intense 70th season beginning in the Fall. Stay tuned!
