Charlotte Lawrence: Navy Blue Tour

Monday, November 11 | 7:00 pm
A&R Music Bar, 391 Neil Ave

Teen pop star Charlotte Lawrence is making tracks – both the musical and performance kind. As a performer, her performances have been hailed as everything from intimate to spellbinding to effervescent. See for yourself as she hits Columbus as the 4th stop of this worldwide tour.


The Insanity Principles Workshop

Wednesday, November 13 | 1:00 pm
The Vanderelli Room, 218 McDowell St

Crazy about making art? Join California performance artist and painter Linda Carmella Sibio for this experimental (and free!) art workshop. Workshop activities are borne out of Sibio’s belief that “we must be fragmented in order to become whole again.”

The Sharks and Jets are back in this special children’s production (Grade 6 and up) presented in collaboration by Columbus Children’s Theater and Short North Stage. This tale of rivalry, hatred, and love is a dance-driven musical featuring both professional and student dancers.
