‘Romantic Fools,’ a comedic look at love, to stage Oct. 6-9 at WCU

Written by 

Theater students from Western Carolina University will present a light look at relationships with “Romantic Fools” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 6 to 9, in Niggli Theatre.

With influences including Monty Python, the Marx Brothers, “Saturday Night Live” and classic vaudeville, “Romantic Fools,” by Rich Orloff, comprises 12 two-character shorts with topics from blind dates to the frustrations of having a perfect mate.

The play stars WCU students, and Peter Savage, a faculty member in the School of Stage and Screen, will direct. While a comedy, the play is for mature audiences.

“Romantic Fools” is the first in the new Niggli Series, featuring intimate, contemporary plays all staged in the Niggli Theatre, located in the Stillwell Building.

$15 adult, $10 senior and WCU employees, and $5 student. Tickets available at the door or in advance at the box office of the Fine and Performing Arts Center. 828.227.2479 or theatretickets.wcu.edu.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
