Arts & Entertainment

The Overlook Theatre Company will be live on stage with “De-Lovely” bringing dinner and entertainment right to your table at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts Feb. 3, 4, and 5, at 6:30 p.m. nightly.

“De-Lovely” opens at Club Cole where the food is hot and the music represents the cool sounds of the sophisticated 1930s. Sit back and enjoy dinner and a show while a cast of characters sing and celebrate the classic melodies of Cole Porter, including such hits as “Anything Goes,” “You’re the Top,” and “Be a Clown.” The audience is invited to relax, enjoy dinner, or even sing along with the cast and musicians, all served live and on stage.


Mark Nizer will bring his unique blend of original comedy, world-class juggling, movement, music and technology to Western Carolina University on Friday, Jan. 28, as part of the 2010-11 Galaxy of Stars Series.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in WCU’s Fine and Performing Arts Center.


Master dulcimer player Michael Shull, former Reserve National Mountain Dulcimer Champion, will perform on Friday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m., in the chorus room of the Franklin High School Fine Arts Center. A recording artist and teacher, Shull has won many accolades and awards, and conducts dulcimer workshops throughout the Southeast region. The Appalachian or “lap” dulcimer, one of America’s oldest folk instruments, is known for its sweet voice and ancient harmonies, and Shull plays it with precision and passion. His front-porch-style programs cover a wide range of musical eras and styles, with an emphasis on Appalachian-based tunes and Mountain Gospel. There is no admission charge; donations will be accepted.


Kathryn Magendie of Haywood County will be at City Lights to read from her new novel, entitled Sweetie, on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 22, at 2 p.m.

Magendie’s acclaimed 2009 novel, “Tender Graces,” received praise from regional and national reviewers alike as well as being a popular staff pick at City Lights. This event is an opportunity to hear this talented author read from and discuss her work.
