WHQR/gg

Cape Fear Theatre Arts presents its New Year's show, Sister Act, a musical based on the blockbuster film. The show opens Friday, 12/30, but only runs twice the first weekend: Friday at 7:30pm and Saturday night for guests of Thalian Hall's New Year's Eve Gala.

Dreams of Wilmington and Thalian Hall present a second edition of Dreambuilders, the event introduced last year to celebrate visual and performing arts by teaching artists from the Dreams Center. This year, a theme is included, making it Dreambuilders-Inspirations: Work by Artists Who Guide.

Kendra Goehring-Garret stars in Opera House Theatre Company's latest offering, City of Angels. The story, set around 1940, is about a writer named Stine crafting a screenplay. The script of the film comes to life right before the eyes of the audience as Stine types it out-the audience even gets to see edits as they happen. The main character in the film is a detective (think film noir) named Stone, who is basically a better version of Stine himself.

This year, the New Year's show produced by City Stage Co. at Thalian Hall is Memphis, a Tony Award-winning musical that opened on Broadway in 2009.  The show is based loosely on the life of Dewey Philips, the first white DJ to play black music back in the 1950s.
