UC/LS: Triad Stage presents Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific
7:30 PM, Triad Stage, 232 S Elm St, Greensboro, NC 27401, USA
Triad Stage, in partnership with UNC Greensboro, brings to life one of Broadway’s most iconic musicals. The world is at war, and on an island in the South Pacific the U.S. has created a military stopover for young men on their way to the front lines of battle. But love is also in the air. Emotions run high as a Midwestern nurse and a young lieutenant each navigate the treacherous waters of unfamiliar cultures and new romances. Winner of the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific will sweep you away with the delightful cast of characters and unforgettable songs like “Bali Ha’i”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,” and “Younger Than Springtime.” Triad Stage invites you to be part of its most ambitious production to date.
Comanche: Hero Complexities
7:00 PM, UNCG Auditorium
Comanche: Hero Complexities is a multidisciplinary work created by Duane Cyrus that is inspired by the heroic acts of Charles W. David Jr., an African American United States Coast Guardsman who lost his life helping to save nearly 100 drowning servicemen in the icy waters off Greenland during World War II. It investigates the possible confluence of questions surrounding themes of rescue, self-sacrifice, and heroism when black male bodies are positioned in contemporary spaces. What does it mean to be a problem and a savior at the same time? And how do contemporary black bodies negotiate the dynamics that arise when intention meets perception?
