A theater group at Meredith College in Raleigh will perform a theater piece for young people this week.
The Meredith Ensemble Theatre will present "Step on a Crack" by Susan Zeder, at 7 p.m., Thursday to Saturday, and 3 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, in Studio Theatre of Jones Hall.
"Step on a Crack" is recommended for ages 10 and up.
Here's a description: The play explores a young girl who lives happily with her widowed father until he remarries and brings a stepmother into their lives. The girl, Ellie, and her imaginary friends, Frizbee and Lana, launch into a fantasy world as she seeks to escape real life problems. Only by running away and discovering what it is really like to be alone does Ellie begin to come to terms with herself and her own need for a mother.
Tickets are $5 for kids, students and seniors, and $10 for adults. Reservations can be made by calling 919-760-2840 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
