Durham
Tres Marias
Barriskill Dance Theatre—Courtesy of Open Air Dance, Tres Marias is a dance theater piece inspired by Isabelle Allende's novel The House of Spirits. The 30-minute dance piece centers around three generations of women, drawing on Allende's themes of epic family connections. Before the performance, local poet and native Venezuelan Banu Valladares gives a dramatic reading. A post-performance discussion caps off the last of Open Air's local productions, as artistic director Hannah Chalut is relocating. Tickets are $8 and are available at the door, through Barriskill or co-sponsor Regulator Bookshop. The show will also be performed Friday, May 2. For more info, visit www.barriskilldance.com or call 794-3674. —Megan Stein



Raleigh
Divas!
Raleigh Little TheatreAmerican Idol be damned—the real place for singing competition is at Raleigh Little Theatre's fifth annual Divas! competition. This year, nine men and women will take the stage, leaving the audience to vote on who will receive the coveted title. Emceed by NBC-17's Sharon Tazewell, the competition features performers who are all RLT veterans—so no matter who takes home the title, the audience is likely to be the winner. Tickets for this year's performance are $25 and includes a silent auction and reception that starts at 7 p.m., one hour before the performances. For more information, call the Raleigh Little Theatre box office at 821-3111. —Zack Smith
