PlayMakers Repertory Company kicks off September with a Nambi E. Kelley’s theatrical adaptation of “Native Son,” based on Richard Wright’s 1940 novel about a black youth living in Chicago’s South Side. The show runs all weekend long.


Experience a culmination of cutting-edge rap, hip-hop and pop from Philadelphia-born, Grammy-nominated Tierra Whack at Memorial Hall, with Raleigh-based rapper ZENSOFLY opening the show. 


The Independent Animal Rescue (IAR), a nonprofit animal rescue based in Durham, will host its 17th annual Painted Chair & More Auction from 6:30-9pm at Saint Thomas More Catholic Church in the Friends and Family Hall. Join fellow animal and art lovers to bid on silent and live auction items including: hand-crafted painted furniture, artwork, jewelry, as well as performances, services, dining and travel experiences. There will also be live music by The Dogwood Blossom Band, refreshments and a cash wine/beer bar.


Dance your heart out to bands all day long on the Southern Village Green for Village Rocks for Education. Bands include Liquid Pleasure, School of Rock‘s House Band, Rock 101ers, Lucky 13 (Chapel Hill High School’s all-female a cappella group) and Ravary. The event will benefit the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public Schools Foundation, and all Southern Village restaurants will be serving take-out specials.
