Raleigh
Lloyd Arneach
N.C. Museum of History—Lloyd Arneach, a native of the Eastern Band of Cherokee, has been a traveling storyteller almost since he first learned the stories of the Cherokee people from two uncles. Whether he's spinning a humorous yarn or a creation story, Arneach stresses, "There is great power and wisdom in the old stories, for they are still teaching." And though many of his tales begin "In the Old Days...," he narrates contemporary stories too, including one about a 7-Eleven clerk who meets a "real live Indian." This free event runs 3-4 p.m. If you miss Arneach today, he appears twice at the Museum of History's 2008 American Indian Heritage Celebration Saturday, Nov. 22. —Spencer Griffith


Raleigh
Main Street/ Fayetteville Street
Raleigh City Museum—The indefatigable folks at Burning Coal Theatre continue their commitment to the city that supports their adventurous dramatic work with this collaboration with Raleigh City Museum. This roving outdoor site play brings to life different episodes in the city's history, including the legend of Thomas Briggs' buried gold, the city's most notorious crime and some tales of President Andrew Johnson (who soon will have company in the "terrible American presidents of the past" club).

The script is by Burning Coal's resident writer Ian Finley, who wrote a similar historical effort called Oakwood, in tribute to the residents of the cemetery of that name. The show opened Saturday, Nov. 15, at 6:30 p.m. and concludes with today's 2 p.m. matinee. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students, and may be obtained by visiting www.burningcoaltheatre.org or by calling 834-4001. —David Fellerath
