Written by 

Juggler Mark Nizer will bring a blend of comedy, juggling, music and technology to Western Carolina University at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28, as part of the Galaxy of Stars Series.

The winner of the International Juggling Championships, Nizer juggles items in  unlikely combinations, like a 16-pound bowling ball, a lit propane torch and a buzzing chain saw, or electric carving knives and lasers at 1,000 revolutions per minute.

Up next in the series at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, is John Davidson, star of music, television, film and stage, followed by the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, juggling and European-style comedy featuring cats and dogs rescued from animal shelters, at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 1.

The performance will be held at Fine and Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for senior citizens, and $5 for students and children.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
