This is a great weekend for families to head out to the theater in the Triad. Whether you want to travel the yellow brick road, cheer on a flesh-eating, singing plant, or search for the golden ticket, there's something for everyone this weekend, live and on stage! Here are our top-5 picks for family-friendly theater.

CTG's 22nd Annual Production of "The Wizard of Oz" Greensboro

You can probably perform the whole show with your eyes closed. But you can never replicate the sheer joy audiences feel year after year as they watch 100+ talented kids, teens and adults (both on-stage and backstage) present this timeless classic. Welcome the holiday season with Dorothy and her friends as they take you “over the rainbow” in this Community Theatre of Greensboro show.

"Honk JR" Winston-Salem

A heartwarming celebration of being different, and a moving tale of self-discovery. Based on Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Ugly Duckling,” it is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and delightful score.

"Little Shop of Horrors" Burlington

The Gallery Players present this horror comedy rock musical, by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, about a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh. 

"Pinkie and Blue" Greensboro

On a magical night, two famous paintings, Pinkie and The Blue Boy are brought to life by the lights of a blue moon. Now they have one night to fly into all the other paintings around them, and have a “once-in-a-blue-moon” adventure. Join Pinkie and Blue as they spring to life and travel through the landscapes of some of the most famous paintings in history. 

Roald Dahl's "Willy Wonka" Lexington

Presented by Lexington Youth Theatre, enjoy as young thespians bring this sweet, musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's familiar tale to life, whisking you into the depths of an imaginative candy factory.
