We Salute Our Veterans

We salute all veterans–but especially those in our A Christmas Carol cast.  Doug Shaw is a West Point graduate and served for twenty years all over the world: from Germany to Hawaii.  Also, our dearly beloved Scrooge, Bruce Chuvala, was a Lt. Colonel in the US Air Force and served as a navigational engineer on B1 bombers in the Vietnam War.   Thank you.

*If we missed any veterans, respond in the comments and we’ll add them.

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
