The N.C. Museum of Arts' summer concert series will feature a family-friendly show this weekend.
Set in the not so distant future, "Peril on the Red Planet" tells the tale of a 13-year-old whiz kid's efforts to save Mars' human inhabitants from death by famine. Along the way and with her robot sidekick, she learns lessons about the importance of community, responsibility, teamwork and sacrifice.
"Peril on the Red Planet" is the work of the Open Dream Ensemble
, a professional outreach program of the UNC School of the Arts. The group is made up of professional dancers, actors and musicians all trained at the School of the Arts in Winston-Salem. And it performs original theater productions for young audiences across the southeast.
"Peril on the Red Planet" is geared to kids in grades three to eight.
It's scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at the N.C. Museum of Art. General admission is $10. Tickets for kids ages 3 to 12 are $5 each. Hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn and other fare will be available for purchase. Click here
