“Other than Parkway, I participate in U12 soccer with TVSA, Girls on the Run with my school, I’m in AIG at my school and I like to participate in the Duke Tip programs. I’m in Student Council where we recently raised money and collected canned food for hungry people in our community. I am very excited to be a murderous 90 year old in Into the Woods, Jr. so I hope you come and see our play.”
Today beings Tech Week for the performers! After a week of Spring Break, these young actors will be working hard to put on the finishing touches to get ready for YOU this weekend. You won’t want to miss opening night.

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.
