COMMUNITY THEATER/THEATER ABOUT COMMUNITY Now, this may seem a little biased, what with the editor of this section being involved and all. However, I assure you (Scouts Honor!) of the value of such an event in Charlotte. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community Relations Committee have really done it this time, taking people of all races, ages, and backgrounds and sending them through diversity boot camp in the hopes of documenting the process through drama. And drama, they got. Community Theater/Theater About Community premieres Wednesday, May 16. It provides an accurate portrait of Charlotte, equally dwelling in the bright spots and the shadows. Come out and see this vital show and maybe walk away with a better sense of self. May 16-18, 8 p.m. Pease Auditorium, CPCC Central Campus, 1201 Elizabeth Ave. 704-336-2605.
