Peer pressure, gang violence and drug/alcohol use are all obstacles facing today’s inner-city youth. With that in mind, James Vesce — who serves as the chair of UNC Charlotte’s Department of Theatre — wrote the book and music for The Moon Prince: A Rap Opera. With added lyrics by Marlon Carey, UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture’s Department of Theatre is taking the production live with shows open to the public for three days, in addition to others at public schools around town.
