As new members of our Chatham County community, Chatham Park is powering our Go See This series this year because art is an integral part of Chatham County’s identity. They join us in inviting you to Go See This . . .
For Maria Parker-Lewis, co-owner of The Pittsboro Roadhouse, preserving the vibrancy of Pittsboro is important not only to her as a citizen and business owner, but to its growing community of residents who enjoy Pittsboro’s small-town culture.
“Pittsboro is not afraid to be quirky,” says Maria. “Our town is made up of many strong, independently-minded, smart, and creative people who express themselves as individuals, but not completely independent from community.”
Shortly after opening the Roadhouse, Maria and her husband were directed by some in the business community to the Pittsboro Business Association, which she credits with getting her really plugged in with the inner workings of the town.
The organization has a strong and dedicated events committee, and Maria pitched the idea of Miracle on Hillsboro Street–an annual holiday show by Phoenix Theatre Company–that would gather Pittsboro families downtown during the holidays.
“It was an idea I heard about that I thought would be perfect for Pittsboro since we are fortunate enough to have the beautiful, historic courthouse right in the middle of downtown. I love the idea of town and county law enforcement and those who work within the court system interacting with the public in a fun and entertaining setting. I was thrilled when the Pittsboro Business Association decided to host it.”
Want to feel some of that small-town magic this holiday season?
Bring your family to downtown Pittsboro on Saturday, December 21 to watch Kris Kringle on trial in the historic Chatham County Courthouse with local actors and legal experts. Bring the kids with a letter to Santa telling him what they love about him. Their letter might even be picked to be read at the show!
