The ArtsCenter | Carrboro
If you’re looking for a full-fledged arts experience, look no further than The ArtsCenter in Carrboro. Established in 1974 as a not-for-profit, The ArtsCenter exists in order to educate and inspire creativity and to enrich the lives of people of all ages. And their calendar proves it so.
The center serves as an intimate venue that hosts live music in all genres and theater performances including their monthly ‘No Shame Theatre’ where pieces arrive up to an hour before show time; they’re cast, rehearsed, and put on stage in front of a live audience an hour later.
The ArtsCenter also hosts improv, comedy shows, and storytelling. Rotating visual art exhibits by local emerging artists, children, and professionals adorn the walls and The ArtsCenter is a regular stop on the 2nd Friday Artwalk.
An annual event normally held in July is the 10x10 In the Triangle Festival of new Short Plays. The ArtsCenter made a decision to postpone the festival until late 2017 because they want to produce the festival within a time frame that enables them to build and grow the quality and reputation. “10 By 10 has been a beloved institution for 15 years and we are excited and honored to continue this Carrboro tradition,” says ArtsCenter Executive Director Dan Mayer. The Carrboro tradition has been around for 15 years and gets its name from 10 plays, 10-minutes long, by 10 authors, performed by 10 actors with 10 directors. The festival usually spans a three-week period. Stay tuned for date announcements.
