BeeSting is a response to the emotional, physical, and spiritual stress of breast cancer against a backdrop of the declining bee population and ever-increasing toxicity of Mother Earth. It explores the imbalance of the feminine in our culture, manifested inwardly with the disease of our breasts, and outwardly with the pollution of our planet.

PARKWAY PLAYHOUSE – Yancey County

Locally Grown North Carolina Theatre, the Parkway Playhouse

People tend think that all theatre in America aspires to be Broadway.  At the Parkway Playhouse, we simply aspire to be, well? the Parkway Playhouse. Broadway and The West End, are wonderful in their own ways.  But after 66 years and counting, so is the Parkway Playhouse.  Our work has its roots in this region and celebrates the diversity, history, and unique lifestyle that can only be found right here; much like our friends in New York LOVE plays and musicals that reflect the experience of being a New Yorker. Much of our work is created, conceived, and performed by regionally based artists; hence, our tag line of Locally Grown North Carolina Theatre.

GREY EAGLE

The Grey Eagle is a listening room-style concert venue. While many performers we feature have dedicated followings, we cannot offer potential performers a built-in crowd. Likewise, while we love to discover new artists and enjoy being part of the early stages of their careers, we simply cannot host performers who are unknown to Asheville audiences. Like many listening rooms around the US, The Grey Eagle is a destination location: an artist must already have some “marquee value” in the Asheville area in order to perform here. If you are (or represent) an artist who is relatively unknown in Western North Carolina, there are many other more suitable options for you, and a quick search on the web should give you a host of possibilities. thegreyeagle.com
