HART presents the works of Gershwin

A stage production of “S’Wonderful: The Music and Life of George Gershwin” will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. July 9-10, 15-17, 22-24, 29-31 and at 2 p.m. July 11, 18, 25 and Aug. 1 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville. 

George Gershwin said it best, “Jazz is the result of the energy stored up in America.” Come dressed in your best 1920s attire and experience that jazzy energy at the grand re-opening of HART’s main stage. This lively musical takes place in the home of George & Ira Gershwin with a party full of unbelievable singers and dancers.

“S’Wonderful” features the music of Gershwin performed by John Crawley and his band. You may remember the incredible talents of the Crawley band in HART’s 2019 production of “Stardust.” 

You’ll hear all of your Gershwin favorites such as “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “Strike Up The Band,” “Rhapsody In Blue,” “S’Wonderful,” and many more. Glenn Arnette directs this star studded cast of Western North Carolina’s finest opera singers, folk singers, tap and ballroom dancers, and actors.

Tickets are on sale now. 828.456.6322 or www.harttheatre.org.
