HART Haywood Arts Regional Theatre

 Welcome to one of the treasures of Western North Carolina. The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre, founded in 1985, is a volunteer-based community theatre showcasing the talents of the people of the region. HART, under the leadership of Executive Director Steven Lloyd, has grown into one of the most active theatres in the Southeast, producing a year-round schedule of plays and musicals from its home, The Performing Arts Center at the Shelton House. Opened in 1997, and funded by the support of people throughout the community, HART’s home is a stunning facility constructed in the style of the traditional Summer Stock playhouses of the 1920’s. Architect Joe Sam Queen and builder Pat Burgin used native materials to create a facility that is both grand and informal.   Click here for seasonal shows Haywood Arts Regional Theater


DEAR JUNOT DÍAZ, I’M DISAPPOINTED. I WISH I WAS SURPRISED.

BLOG from the Representation Project with Jennifer Seibel Newsome

As the news about Junot Díaz spread across the twittersphere Friday morning, I was disappointed but not surprised. How could I be? I’ve known, on some level, about this abhorrent behavior since I first picked up The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao as a senior in high school.

MOUNTAIN TRUE – Action, Issues & Advocacy

The NC Department of Environmental Quality has extended the deadline for public feedback about North Carolina’s coal combustion residuals (CCR) rules from March 22 to April 6. The DEQ has indicated that they plan to enact their own state CCR rules in addition to the federal rules, which are at risk of being weakened by current EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. If the federal rules are weakened, we need to make sure the state CCR rules can step in to help defend our waters and our communities.
