On the stage

Written by 

HPAC ‘Live via Satellite’

The Highlands Performing Arts Center will present the National Theatre of London’s production of “Young Marx” Live via Satellite at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16.

Rory Kinnear is Marx and Oliver Chris is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. The production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy “One Man, Two Guvnors.”

Set in 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, the 32-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But, there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Tickets are available at, at the door or by calling 828.526.9047.



• Auditions for “Sense and Sensibility” will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, and 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17, in the Fangmeyer Theater at HART in Waynesville. The production will run April 27-May 13. Anyone unable to attend should contact HART at 828.456.6322 to arrange a special audition time. Roles are available for five men and five women of various ages. All actors in this adaptation play multiple roles. The production opens HART’s 2018 Main Stage season in April. Audition for all of HART’s remaining 2018 productions will be held in February.
