ECU/Loessin Summer Theatre Festival: Seven in One Blow (children’s show)

Cullman Performance Hall, North Carolina History Center

Festival starts at 2:00pm

Tickets:  $10 Adults, $5 Youth

This children’s theatre play, developed by Randy Sharp and the Axis Theatre Company of New York, tells of a child who strikes seven flies with a single swat and makes a belt emblazoned with “Seven in One Blow” to commemorate the event. Most people think he’s killed seven people and begin asking him to perform all kinds of difficult tasks. Along the way, he learns a few invaluable lessons: An ogre finds that you don’t always have to show how strong you are; a girl realizes that teasing hurts someone just like you; and a scary monster comes to understand that she may not be so scary after all.  In the end, the child ultimately discovers that a parent’s love and care has no limits.

Tickets on sale online at www.ecuarts.com or call 1-800-ECU-ARTS (328-2787) or 252-328-4788. Tickets are also available in-person at the North Carolina History Center and at the performance. Seating is general admission.

Produced by the East Carolina University School of Theater And Dance in the Tryon Palace Performing Arts Series.

ECU/Loessin Summer Theatre Festival: Our Town

Cullman Performance Hall, North Carolina History Center

Festival starts at 7:30pm

Tickets:  $15 Adults, $12.50 Council of Friends, $5 Youth

In this Thornton Wilder classic, we begin our journey as the Stage Manager welcomes us to Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, 1901. Its morning; the paperboy delivers papers; and the milkman strolls by. The Gibbs family and the Webb family are sitting down to breakfast. We travel with these folks as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. The play is enacted on a bare stage with minimal props, allowing us to fill in the rest with our imagination.

Tickets on sale online at www.ecuarts.com or call 1-800-ECU-ARTS (328-2787) or 252-328-4788. Tickets are also available in-person at the North Carolina History Center and at the performance. Seating is general admission.
