Durham Performing Arts Center | Durham, NC
EVENT RESCHEDULED TO FRIDAY 25TH AUGUST 2023. Originally Thursday 2nd October 2070. All original tickets are still valid!
When Dorothy and her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, iconically won over the Wicked Witch in the original story and 1939 film starring Judy Garland, we only got to see one side of the story. And all kids should learn that they shouldn’t jump to conclusions until they’ve heard both sides to any story. This will open young eyes (and older ones too!), as bits of the well-loved story are turned on their heads. We know our eyes widened when it dawned on me how the Tin Man came to lose his heart! This emotional story needs to be seen, and now you can at the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham!
Theatre is a cultural area where society analyses itself in a mirror. Theatre has long been viewed as a laboratory in which we can study the problems that challenge society every day, and we can try to solve those problems with a better understanding. The theater allows people from different cultures to quickly educate themselves about new place, people, and nations, which is one of the most popular reasons for attendance. So if you want to understand a different culture, or simply witness real life emotions as a story unfolds in front of you, come down to the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham where you have the opportunity to see some amazing performers, especially in the latest show to be announced, Wicked!
