Acclaimed play, "The Christians," making Charlotte debut
Children's Theatre of Charlotte at ImaginOn has an immense structure called the Story Jar, a "jar" above which are suspended tons of things that have relationships to shows the group has done, or kids it has served. Maryann O'Keeffe, Partnership Coordinator for Children's Theatre, talks about objects on the Story Jar with the best stories.
What do you believe? Why do you believe it? And what would you sacrifice for those beliefs? Those questions drive the provocative new play "The Christians," making its Charlotte debut.
