    • Theatre in the Park’s “The Coarse Acting Show” is a spoof of overdone, hammy productions that give provincial theater a bad name. Four one-acts, including a “lost” Shakespeare play, give variety to the hilarity. Details at theatreinthepark.com.

    • Carrboro’s ArtsCenter stages its annual “10 by 10 in the Triangle” production starting Friday night, offering ten 10-minute plays selected from over 750 submissions. Details at artscenterlive.org.

    • Friday at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m., the one-act play, “Moving Pieces,” takes its audience to a variety of locations in Raleigh’s Warehouse District, with scene changes prompted by text messages. Details at movingpiecesraleigh.com.

Theatre Raleigh's Hot Summer Nights series takes on the moving musical, "Parade," the true story of the 1913 trial of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager accused of rape and murder.
