On the stage

Written by 

Unto These Hills outdoor drama

The Unto These Hills stage production will be held at 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday through Aug. 19 at the Mountainside Theater in Cherokee.

This acclaimed outdoor drama traces the Cherokee people through the eons, through the zenith of their power, through the heartbreak of the Trail of Tears, finally ending, appropriately, in the present day, where the Cherokee people, much like their newly re-scripted drama, continue to rewrite their place in the world...a place based on traditional Cherokee values and modern sensibilities.

HART presents ‘The Fantasticks’

A dinner theatre of the musical “The Fantasticks” will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. June 22-24, 29-30 and July 1 (with dinner buffet at 6 p.m.) and 2 p.m. June 25 and July 2 (with a brunch buffet at 12:30 p.m.) at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville. 

The musical is an allegorical story, loosely based on the play “The Romancers” (“Les Romanesques”) by Edmond Rostand, concerning two neighboring fathers who manipulate their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by building a wall between their gardens, and pretending to feud. The fathers hire a “professional abductor” and traveling actors to stage a mock abduction in the hopes that Matt may “save” Luisa heroically, in turn ending the supposed feud. When the two children unveil the fathers’ deception, they reject their arranged love and separate. In their separation the children see the world for what it really is, in parallel sequences of fantasy. On their return, they renew their vows in their newfound maturity. 

Tickets are $46 for adults, $44 for seniors and $30 for students. Side stage table for four is $224 and a side stage table for two is $112.
