Tickets to go on sale for ‘FROGZ’

With larger-than-life animals taking on human characteristics, “FROGZ” was designed to create a comedic and mind-bending carnival of the absurd that entertains people of all ages.

They can be purchased at the Bardo Arts Center box office, online at www.bardoartscenter.wcu.edu or by phone at 828.227.2479.
Societal comedy to hit HART stage
The societal comedy “Elemeno Pea” will be held at 7:30 p.m. 23-24 and at 3 p.m. Jan. 25 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville.
It’s just after Labor Day, and Martha’s Vineyard has started emptying out, but you can still smell the suntan lotion (the expensive kind). And the expensive life is just what Simone is living these days, as personal assistant to Michaela Kell, trophy wife of an absurdly rich (and often absent) New York ad man. When Simone’s older sister, a social worker from blue collar Buffalo, comes to visit, lifestyles — and worlds — collide. This keenly observed comedy about class, family and the choices that shape who we are unfolds in real time, fast, furious and funny.
Tickets cost $10 for adults, $6 for students.
