UNCG’s North Carolina Theatre for Young People will present “Pinkie and Blue” over two weekends and one week in November. In this imaginative play written by Jim Wren and Joe Sturgeon and directed by Jim Wren, two paintings, Pinkie and The Blue Boy, are brought to life and travel through the landscapes of some of the most famous paintings in history. Their journey takes them through Van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” Rousseau’s “Sleeping Gypsy,” Chagall’s “Circus,” Degas’ “Dance Rehearsal” and Lautrec’s “Can-Can.” Will Pinkie and Blue make it back to their frames?
The show runs Nov. 11-18 with showtimes at 9:30 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. All performances are in the Taylor Theatre, at 406 Tate Street. The 2 p.m. Nov. 12 performance will be followed by a family friendly tea party with the cast, and guests will receive cider hot cocoa, tea and seasonal treats. Guests are encouraged to bring cameras to take pictures with the costumed cast members. The 7:30 Nov. 11 show will be a “pay what you can” preview. Tickets for the show and tea party may be purchased at the box office at 402 Tate Street in room 115 of the Brown Building, through Triad Stage’s website, or by calling 336-334-4392.
