PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Della makes cakes, not judgment calls-those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married, and the fiancé is actually a fiancée, Della's life gets turned upside down. She can't really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life, Della has to think for herself. Inspired by true events and written by NC native, Bekah Brunstetter (TV's "This is Us"), this funny and poignant piece proves the most important ingredient is love.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Yamato was founded in 1993 in Nara, 'the land of Yamato', which is said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture. Yamato travels all over the world with Japan's traditional Wadaiko drums, putting its souls into the unusual instruments whose sound stirs the hearts of people everywhere. They think of the sound of the Wadaiko drums- made of animal skin and ancient trees, some of which are more than 400 years old- as a pulse or heartbeat (Shin-on), the center of life and the source of power which pulsates within the human body. Yamato attempts to create the energy of life, which envelops the audience and performers. What one feels when surrounded by the sound of Wadaiko, brought out by these highly trained performers, is what the Japanese call "Tamashy", translated as soul, spirit, psyche- the basic elements of life.

Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The Russian National Ballet brings to life one of the most beloved story book ballets, performed beautifully by a 50-dancer company set to Tchaikovsky's classic score.

In an imaginary city-state loosely based on ancient Greek myths, generational conflict erupts around how to handle the mass of desperate, uprooted migrants outside the city walls. Inspired by the current refugee crisis in southern Europe, and partially developed through on-the-ground faculty-student research, this play takes dead aim at climate change, xenophobia, and what it costs us to compromise our ideals.
