Durham Theatre and Art

When guests stay at the lovely Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast in Durham, NC, they have easy access to entertaining Durham Theatre and Art.  We (Hosts Monica and Daniel Edwards) want Durham visitors to know about the community’s exciting upcoming theatre and art events.

The Durham Performing Arts Center (within walking distance from the manor) offers eight entertaining performances of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella from November 18 to 23.  This Tony Award-winning Broadway musical delights audiences with its contemporary take on the classic tale.  This lush production features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations, and memorable moments with the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball, and more.
