The family musical Mirandy and Brother Wind opens Friday at Synchronicity Theatre and will begin streaming on March 19. It’s springtime in South Carolina and 10-year-old Mirandy (Dionna D.

In-person performances at 7 p.m. Friday, 4 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Midtown theater. $25. Socially distanced salon performances will follow strict COVID-19 safety protocols for audiences and artists. Performed and streamed ($10) through April 4. Tickets HERE.
Found Stages takes its immersive, site-specific style of theater to the digital world with The Shift, a full-scale production in which audience members have an active role. In a post-apocalyptic world, natural resources — including water — are scarce. Three female characters play Zoom versions of action–adventure movie heroes from the STEM fields of civil, hydraulic and software engineering. To help them succeed, audience members will split into teams and complete interactive tasks created by an escape-room designer. Nichole Palmietto directs a four-person cast, at least some of whom should be familiar — Alexandra Ficken, Michelle Pokopac, TJ Ruth and Jasmine Thomas. Written by Annie Harrison Elliott, Neeley Gossett and Addae Moon. Eight performances through March 27. $20 per household HERE.
