‘Romantic Fools’ stages at WCU

Written by 

Theater students from Western Carolina University will present “Romantic Fools” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 6-9, in Niggli Theatre on campus.

With influences including Monty Python, the Marx Brothers, “Saturday Night Live” and classic vaudeville, “Romantic Fools,” by Rich Orloff, comprises 12 two-character shorts with topics from blind dates to the frustrations of having a perfect mate. The play stars WCU students Christina Banner, Christina DeSoto, Andrew Drake, Chris Evans, Courtney Olivier, John R. Raines, Jordan Snead and Tara Williams. Peter Savage, a faculty member in the School of Stage and Screen, will direct. While a comedy, the play is for mature audiences.

The next play in the Niggli Series is “Reasons to be Pretty” by Neil LaBute, Feb. 9-12, about the frustrations of love; followed by “TheAtrainplays, Vol. 2,” April 13-16, created by various playwrights under a tight deadline in one of New York’s most famous subway lines.

Cost is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and WCU employees, and $5 for students. Seating is reserved, with tickets available at the door or in advance at the box office of the Fine and Performing Arts Center. For tickets or information, call 828.227.2479 or visit theatretickets.wcu.edu.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
