Pittsboro Youth Theater will be performing the play Holes by Louis Sachar. Holes is great book, Disney film and play that is suitable for all audiences. Come see this wonderful story come to life on stage at Sweet Bee Theater!!! This is feel good play teaches the importance of friendship, inclusiveness and family values.

If you don't know the story of Holes:

The boys living at Camp Green Lake have all lived hard-luck lives. Each carries the scars of a world that all too often forces kids to confront the harsh realities of homelessness, poverty, abuse, absent authority figures, and illiteracy. Though these are difficult topics, the ultimate message is one of redemption and hope.


We think you will feel great sympathy for the kids at Camp Green Lake, especially Stanley “Caveman” Yelnats and Hector “Zero” Zeroni. You will like the quirky characters, intricate plot, the adventure story, and most of all, the message that friendship and learning really matter. Stanley and Zero are both kids having a tough time making it in the world around them.


Through perseverance, loyalty, and courage, they rise to become accepted as heroes by the boys who previously rejected them. Stanley is able to end a family curse because he takes the time to teach and stand by a friend. Zero solves a hundred-year mystery through his new found ability to read.

Great local production of Annie, great cause, great refreshments. It can get a little tight for more popular shows but all in all this is a wonderful place and gives back so much to the community.

CFTA Music News

   WhooHoo! We've made a lot of improvements in our music facilities and equipment recently. Sweet Bee Theater has never sounded so good and our Chatham Community Band project is gaining traction.


  All 3 pianos in house are sounding great. A wonderful supporter of Pittsboro Youth Theater's family of arts organizations has helped us cover the cost of repairing one of our digital pianos and purchased a couple new stage monitors (speakers) in Sweet Bee Theater.


   Having 3 pianos up and running again means our 2nd private music lesson room is fully back in service. Just in time; every cast member of Pittsboro Youth Theater's Mary Poppins musical takes private voice lessons in addition to group singing on stage during rehearsals.

   Center for the Arts, Pittsboro provides local residents with an outstanding array of opportunities to learn, play and listen to music, including:

    • Private Music Lessons

       - Piano

       - Guitar (all types)

       - Violin

       - Singing Voice

       - Ukelele

       - Mandolin

       - Flute, and more...

   We currently have 4 Music Instructors on staff.


    • Community Band

        CFTA, Pittsboro's goal in 2019 is to start a Pittsboro Community Band and/or Community Choir and/or Community Orchestra. The first step in starting these 3 organizations is to find a willing and able leader. 

Wayne G. Holland has volunteered to lead our Community Band.

We are collecting names of interested adult musicians in the area interested in being in or supporting the band. If you are interested in joining or supporting the Chatham Community Band, please stop by the CFTA and leave your name, interest and contact information or email your information to CFTAPBO@gmail.com


In October we will have a meeting to determine how to move forward with Chatham Community Band. Parameters and all details of the band are to be determined by those who will participate.

    • Musical Plays

       Pittsboro Youth Theater produces 3 musicals each year in Sweet Bee Theater. Right now we're rehearsing Disney and Cameron Macintosh's Mary Poppins musical. Mary Pippins will be performed in Sweet Bee Theater December 14-22, 2019.

   • Sweet Bee Theater Improvements

        In 2019 we've made Sweet Bee Theater sound systems much better than ever before.

   • Guitar Club

       The Fearrington Guitar Club holds their Sunday Music Jam in Sweet Bee Theater most 2nd and 4th Sundays from 2-4pm. Guitar players, singers and friendly foot tappers are invited to drop in and enjoy themselves.
