couture RUNWAY

Alamance Arts will present a couture fashion show with fashion designer Beth Pilger on Saturday, October 27 at 7 p.m., at 4 Seventeen (417 Albright Avenue) in Graham, to benefit the arts in our community.

New York fashion designer Beth Pilger’s 15 year career started at Parsons the New School for Design in New York. Since then, she has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad, from movie premiers to international music stages, her body of couture knitwork arriving this fall is inspired by her memories and experiences in the south. With sustainability at the forefront, Pilger incorporates America’s rich fiber resources in an array of hand spun, hand knit and hand felted pieces. Join us as we bring NY to NC!

An intimate evening with Melvin Tunstall III

Alamance Arts invites the Alamance community to gather on November 1 for an evening of conversation with native son Melvin Tunstall, currently appearing on Broadway in the Tony-award winning musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Melvin will be in town to attend the traveling performance of the off-Broadway hit, POLKADOTS: The Cool Kids Musical for which Melvin wrote the libretto. He is the son of Linda and Melvin Tunstall and is a graduate of Graham High School.

This is an exciting opportunity for old friends, relatives, neighbors, classmates and theatre goers to catch -up with Melvin, reminisce about past musical projects and to hear about his greatest joy, the art of writing!

Meet at 7 p.m. on November 1 at the newly restored Impact Alamance headquarters in the historic Cammack building, located at 133 East Davis Street in Burlington. Light refreshments will be served. A $10 donation per person would be appreciated to help Alamance Arts with the expense of bringing POLKADOTS to the Paramount Theater stage. Please call Alamance Arts to reserve your place 336-226-4495.

polkadots: the cool kids musical

POLKADOTS: The Cool Kids Musical will show on Friday, November 2, 7 p.m., at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Burlington. Purchase your tickets here.

Written by Melvin Tunstall, POLKADOTS: The Cool Kids Musical follows 8-year-old Lily Polkadot who just moved to the "Squares Only" small town of Rockaway. As the first Polkadot in an all Square school, Lily faces an almost impossible task of gaining acceptance from her peers. From daily bullying to segregated drinking fountains, Lily's quest seems hopeless until she meets Sky, a shy Square boy whose curiosity for her unique polkadot skin blooms into an unexpected pal-ship. Inspired by the events of The Little Rock 9, POLKADOTS serves as a colorful history lesson for children, reminding them that our individual differences make us awesome, not outcasts.
