Since Cary opened the Cary Arts Center, it's been able to beef up its offerings for families and that includes the Marvelous Music Family Series.
Tickets for shows in this series are just $8 per person. They are on sale now. Here's what's scheduled with descriptions courtesy of Cary:
- 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 21, Cary Ballet presents A Mini Very Cary Christmas. Cary Ballet Company and The 3D Project present a holiday performance wrapped up in one hour! You will be treated to exclusive holiday jazz works by dancers of The 3D Project, followed by a miniballet demonstration presented by Artistic Director Deanna Seay. In keeping with holiday tradition, the company will close the performance with a condensed and delightful version of the “Nutcracker” with the Sugarplum Fairy and other dances. Afterwards, there is a Special Ballerina Tea. The Special Ballerina Tea is a limited package, which includes premiere seating for the performance. Tickets for the package are $16.
- Saturday, Jan. 25, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte presents Too Many Frogs at 3 p.m. and Hansel & Gretel at 10 a.m. It’s a double feature that is double the fun, featuring the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. First up is “Too Many Frogs”, based on the book by Sandy Asher and Keith Graves. The second feature of this double delight is an adaptation of “Hansel & Gretel” by Mike Kenny. Join us for a new twist on a classic fairy tale. Tickets to each show are sold separately.
- 11 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 22, Opera Carolina presents The Three Little Pigs. Opera Carolina’s educational touring company is slated to perform a favorite among favorites, “The Three Little Pigs”. As the story goes—while brother pigs, Don Giovanni and Cherubino set off to make homes of sticks and straw, their sister, Despina goes to the library to read up on huff-proof, puff-proof home construction. When Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the boys’ flimsy homes, they run to their sister’s sturdy new brick house, quite ready to admit that going to the library and reading books is a pretty smart thing to do after all. Best for kids in kindergarten to fifth grade.
- 3 p.m., March 16, Billy Jonas. Billy Jonas is serving up a musical conversation … a sonic celebration … a splendiferous gathering of old and young, because at a Billy Jonas show, the ensemble is … everyone. His music mixes conventional instruments (guitar, bass, marimba) with homemade creations (using buckets and barrels, keys and cans, bells and body percussion). It’s spirited, straightforward music that is accessible to anyone and everyone, regardless of age or cultural background.
