This year’s theme is an old time radio show. Students have studied what entertainment was
like in the 1920s and 1930s before television.
The school’s theater troupe, the Grow Zone Players, will be performing
an actual episode of “The Thin Man” while also creating the sound effects from
“The Thin Man” was a weekly radio show that starred Nick and
Nora as crime detectives solving a mysterious case each week.
“This is a different style of performance than we’ve done in
the past but one that our young actors are very excited to share with our
community,” said drama program director, Ryan Bender.
Along with displays of student work and delicious hors
d’oeuvres, there will be local performers including members of the Ridgeline
Literary Alliance. The TLC Grow Zone
Players will present their live radio performance of “The Thin Man” at 7:30pm.

The annual spring drama production showed May 3-5, 2019 to sold out crowds in the school’s Black Box Theater.
The musical began as young Aesop explains to the audience about his problem of constantly hearing annoying voices in his head, which come to life as hysterical characters onstage that only Aesop (and the audience) can see and hear. With the resentful Fox, the egomaniac Hare, the sluggish Tortoise, the zen-like Grasshopper and many more, Aesop’s Musical Foibles retold the fables like you’ve never quite heard them before!
It was a rousing comedy filled with talented actors perfectly cast for their parts. These students spent months learning lines, songs and dances and their hard work paid off in the incredible final production!
On November 8th and 9th, 2018, our school hosted our third annual art celebration and fundraising event — ARTrageous 2018.
This two night event featured a live and silent auction on Thursday. Former North Carolina Poet Laureate, Shelby Stephenson, was on hand to entertain the crowd.
On the second night of the event, art was celebrated in all forms from food, dancing, live music, written and spoken word, to gallery art and live drama performances.
Our fabulous TLC! GrowZone Players performed a one-act play. These young actors always steal the show and give audiences a great preview of the spectacular performances you’ll see at our annual Spring Musical. This year’s play, The Wolf Who Was a Vegetarian, and Other Slightly Bizarre Stories featured the work of North Carolina Playwright Susan Steadman, seen in the photo above.
