We love watching others act out life stories and we all have our favorites. For this weekend, we've rounded up a list of five live performances the whole family will enjoy. But do remember to stop by our 2016 Fit Family Challenge Kickoff Event while you're out and about! 

"Gypsy" at the Community Theatre of Greensboro

The ultimate show biz story about the ultimate stage mother. Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920′s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born.

"Mary Poppins, The Broadway Musical" at High Point Theatre

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. There will be a special Tea with Mary, Bert and Friends prior to Saturday's performance.

"My Son Pinocchio, Jr." at New Garden Friends School, Greensboro

Each year, Greater Greensboro Area Young Artists, ages 8-11, amaze and delight audiences with impressive talent, outstanding direction, stellar staging and wonderful choreography. This year's Greensboro Performing Arts curtain opens for the classic, "My Son Pinocchio, Jr.," a family favorite for generations.

"Much Ado About Nothing" at Tanger Bicentennial Garden, Greensboro

The Drama Children’s Theatre presents a youth production of Shakespeare’s classic comedy "Much Ado About Nothing." Bring a picnic and enjoy this play about the battle of the sexes as Beatrice and Benedick display the witty wisecrack wordplay only Shakespeare can write as their friends plot to get them together.

"The Wizard of Oz" at the Arts Council Theatre, Winston-Salem

Whisked into the magical Land of Oz by a terrible tornado, Dorothy and Toto embark on a strange and enchanting adventure to find a way home, meeting the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion – and the Wicked Witch of the West – along the way.
