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.

 

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
