THEATER: The Elephant Man at CAST 

Thursday, Nov. 18

Carolina Actors Studio Theatre's latest performances of The Elephant Man is a good example of the old saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." This drama by Bernard Pomerance tells the famous true story of the hideously deformed Joseph (John) Merrick who is discovered and rescued from a freak show by surgeon Frederick Treves. As Merrick becomes re-accustomed with society, his inner beauty and heroism inspires those around him. Folks also begin finding flaws within themselves. Looks like more cover-ups are needed. $20-$25. Nov. 18-20, 8 p.m.; Nov. 21, 2:30 p.m. Carolina Actors Studio Theatre, 1118 Clement Ave. 704-455-8542.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
