'Silhouettes of Service'

DreamWrights Center for Community Arts presents "Silhouettes of Service," a solo work depicting real accounts from soldiers, for one night only on Veterans Day.

The show, winner of the 2016 Community Impact Award from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, is a 75-minute piece created and performed by DreamWrights artistic diretor Gregory DeCandia. It is derived from 26 interviews of soldiers ranging from ROTC cadet to colonel who served between World War II and the present.

The performance is at 7 p.m. Thursday at DreamWrights, 100 Carlisle Ave. Tickets are $15 for general admission, and veterans and current military are invited to the performance for free.
