“HOME”
April 11-12, 7:30 p.m.
Heaton Hall
Myers Park Baptist Church
One Voice sheds light on a critical issue within the LGBT community: Homeless LGBT Youth. With help from Time Out Youth and Urban Ministry Center, the chorus is reaching out to hear the stories of LGBT youth who have been (or are) homeless. Through a grant from the Charlotte Lesbian and gay Fund, the chorus will share these stories in a video and musical documentary — both to premier at its spring concert, “HOME.” The concert will also celebrate the families that LGBT people of all ages create for themselves.

“Hollywood Squares: Divas”
June 19, 8 p.m.
North Carolina Dance Theater
Hollywood Squares is back again and this year it’s all about the Divas! Featuring Barbara, Cher and more, the event is part retro game show and part concert … all with the same irreverent fun audiences have come to expect.
