It’s a great week for local theatre as Playmakers and Raleigh Little Theatre kick off their 2015-16 seasons! The Summer Sisters and Common Ground return with another collaboration – this time inspired by Wonder Woman – and Theatre Raleigh hosts a concert performance of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, “Carousel.”
And…there’s a new venue in town! Sonorous Road Productions is located right near the NC State bell tower and they offer classes in film and theatre, as well as a 100-seat performance space. Visitors are welcome to the grand opening this Saturday.
