Things to do in Wilmington, NC: November 6th 

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

November 6th may seem like a regular Tuesday, but it’s one of the most important days of the year for Wilmington and the rest of the country. When considering all of the things to do in Wilmington, NC on November 8th, there are two things you shouldn't forget to do:

  1. Vote in the General Election
  2. Celebrate your vote by attending UNCW Presents The Nature of Forgetting 

UNCW Presents is excited to welcome Theatre Re and The Nature of Forgetting to our Kenan Auditorium stage on Election Day. For those who hit the polls and then stop by the show, UNCW Presents is offering a special $5 discount. 

Theatre Re Things to Do in WilmingtonTheatre Re has captivated audiences with its goal of “re-discovering and re-imagining, breathing new life into what already exists.” This performance is no exception. With its roots in physical theatre, The Nature of Forgetting will draw on evocative movement, mime, dynamic lighting, and a live musical score to tell the story of 55-year-old Tom, a father struggling in the early stages of dementia. The Nature of Forgetting is the intersection of art and science that bursts with creativity, joy, and heartache.  

November 6th will be a celebration of how voting can breathe new life into our local and federal government systems as well as a celebration of shining humanity, compassion, and joy of a life well lived with The Nature of Forgetting. Get a sneak-peek of the magic of The Nature of Forgetting from their trailer.
