MARCH 30 MARCH 23 - 31 WELCOME TO ARROYOS CAPE FEAR REGIONAL THEATRE This new production is a hip-hop theater coming-of-age story. Alejandro Arroyo owns the newest (and cleanest) lounge in New York City's Lower East Side. His sister, Molly, has a nasty habit of writing graffiti on the back wall of the local police precinct. Officer Derek is a recent NYC transplant with something to prove. Lelly Santiago is a socially awkward college student who may have discovered that the Arroyo siblings' late mother was one of the founders of hip-hop music. Two DJs/narrators spin the story in this hilariously heartfelt piece. This play is rated PG-13 for adult language and themes. More information about the play and ticket prices can be found at www.cfrt.org/project/welcome-to-arroyos/#about-the-show. MARCH 24 GOT EAR CANDY? JACK BRITT HIGH SCHOOL This Cumberland Choral Arts perfor- mance is partnering up with the Jack Britt High School Chorus to sing songs they love. Ask any choir member why they sing in a choir and two answers always emerge: the love for singing with others and to sing glorious harmonies. They call it "ear candy!" The choir was surveyed as to their favorite choral octavos, and the selections they chose are those that rose to the top of the collective list! Please sit back and relax with the kind of favorite candy they prefer to snack upon! Tickets range from $5 to $15 and can be bought at https://bit. ly/3m44BFh. 16TH ANNUAL BREAD N' BOWLS 701 WESTMONT DRIVE This annual fundraiser helps benefit the ministry of the Fayetteville Area Operation INASMUCH.
