TheatreUNCA will stage the Michael Slade drama "And a Child Shall Lead" November 18-22 at UNC Asheville's Carol Belk Theatre. Curtain is 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. All shows are open to the public.
"And a Child Shall Lead" is the heroic true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the Jewish establishment created by the Nazis as a death camp way-station. There, the children use determination and artistic expression to maintain hope. Their actual poems and stories are woven into the fast-paced drama, evoking the timeless story of children struggling through war.
This production is directed by seniors Virginia Aughe and Sam Woods. The cast and crew is also made up of UNC Asheville students.
Tickets for all performances are $10 general admission, $8 for senior citizens and $5 for students. Because of the intimate size of UNC Asheville's Carol Belk Theatre and the often heavy demand for tickets, advance purchase is strongly advised.
