Regular cast members include Gary Carden, Lloyd Arneach, Paul Iarussi, the Tuckaseegee Boys and the show’s mascot Bodine. The Liars Bench recognizes established regional artists and performers and encourages new talent also.

The next presentation of The Liars Bench at WCU’s Mountain Heritage Center will be at 7 p.m. Nov. 15 with a presentation of one of Dr. Carden’s plays, “Birdell,” the story of a defiant mountain woman forced off her land by the rising waters of Fontana lake.
