Blue-collar Don is the father of the star pitcher and veteran coach; Michael is the timid newcomer who wants a special activity for his comparatively unathletic son. Scott Treadway and Charlie Flynn-McIver star in the pointed comedy Rounding Third, which makes use of the levity inherent in the Little League field to illustrate deeper life lessons about competition, masculinity and parenting. In an effort to make theater accessible for everyone, NC Stage is offering tiered pricing and has done away with online service fees. Rounding Third plays Jan. 29 to Feb. 23. Wednesdays-Saturdays, at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, at 2 p.m. $14-$30 based on seating. $10 for students. ncstage.org.
