HART to present cabaret
The stage production of “Miscast: A Cabaret with the Right Singer and the Wrong Song” will open Feb. 12 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville.
It will be an exciting night to reexamine the characters we think we know and to break the mold of how a performer “should” look or how a character “should” be played. Expect surprise solos, duets, quartets from the best classics, Sondheim showstoppers and everything in between. Nothing is off the table.

New twist on ‘Macbeth’
A modern day take on a Shakespeare classic, “Macbeth is the New Black” will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 17-20 in the Hoey Auditorium at Western Carolina University.
This updating of “Macbeth” comes from original material by Linda Parsons Marion. In a women’s juvenile detention center in Tennessee, the inmates are staging a production of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. What’s happening in the detention center begins to mirror the secrecy and violence in the play, and the results are vicious.
Tickets are $16 for adults, $11 for senior citizens, faculty and staff, and $10 for students ($7 in advance).
