Behind The Scenes: Alan Poindexter

Courtesy, Children's Theatre of Charlotte

Behind the Scenes is an occasional series designed to introduce you to the people bringing art and culture to life in Charlotte. We'll ask four relevant questions of each person we profile … and one ridiculous, either/or bonus question. Thanks to Alan Poindexter, artistic director of Children's Theatre of Charlotte for entertaining my questions. He and Children's Theatre are gearing up for their production of Seussical. Find out more.
