The Off-Broadway hit comedy Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, is a one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray.

Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom.  This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids! 

When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. It's a great recipe for a date night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment!

Based on the hilarious hit film, 9 TO 5 is an outrageous, 1980’s era revenge story of friendship and female empowerment. Three women, working at the mercy of their manipulative misogynist boss, live out their wildest workplace fantasy – giving the boss the boot. With a high-energy, huge-hearted score by the iconic Dolly Parton, 9 TO 5 is about finally getting credit…and getting even.

*Face masks, proof of full Covid-19 vaccination, or negative Covid-19 PCR test completed within 72 hours prior to event required.

This October, the Carolina Ballet returns to live performance with their new Halloween tradition—The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Artistic Director Zalman Raffael brings Washington Irving’s bonechilling tale to the stage for fans both young and old. The ballet recounts Ichabod Crane, his doomed courtship with Katrina Van Tassel, and his “face-to-face” encounter with the terrifying specter that is the Headless Horseman.

Fans of the supernatural will enjoy this program of frights and delights that include Robert Weiss’ Lady in the WhiteVeil and The Raven. Spine-tingling and eerie, do not be surprised if you stumble upon an ominous ghost, a creepy blackbird or the Headless Horseman himself!
