Back in my pre-mom days, I used to work in Carrboro, and loved the small town vibe. What I miss most is The ArtsCenter, which is truly the heart of Carrboro. The ArtsCenter began in 1974 and is a unique not-for-profit place for concerts, classes, residencies and community support of the arts. Over the years I've seen bands, slam poets, and improv comedians there, and now that I've had kids, many a SuperFun Show. The ArtsCenter’s SuperFun Series is a group of family friendly performances held on the weekends. As they say, "SuperFun Shows are a great way for kids to have fun, discover, and experience something new in a laid-back, family-friendly setting." The shows may be plays, music shows, storytelling, or something that defies categorization from both local and international acts, and are geared toward pre-K to elementary school age children. Past shows have included sold-out performances by acclaimed "kindie" rock star Justin Roberts and folk musician Elizabeth Mitchell, as well as Triangle favorites Rags To Riches Theatre for Young Audiences, Lunch Money, Gustafer Yellowgold, and Hobey Ford’s Golden Rod Puppets. There is no better way to spend quality time with your family than opening their eyes to the wonder of art, and the pop show this upcoming weekend is definitely full of wonder!

Elska's shows are a mix of the whimsy of Winnie the Pooh and the otherworldliness of Dr. Seuss, and the combination creates a playful, sparkling soundscape that casts a spell over the audience, drawing them into Elska’s amazing world.
“Elska is crazy awesome electronic funderworld faerie tunes for the whole family.”
- Mike Jorgensen, Wilco
