Then members were treated to a presentation about all Parkway Playhouse has done this season given by Executive Director Jeff Bachar and Operation/Production Manager Kristen Livengood. When it comes to theatre, these two really see eye-to-eye… eye to eye web

Turner Weinmeister, who is very involved with the Parkway Playhouse Junior program, even got put on the hot seat for a bit— telling stories about his week on Broadway working on Matilda Jr. through iTheatrics and MTI (an opportunity he received when Parkway Playhouse Junior attended Junior Theatre Festival last January). He also has several mainstage shows under his belt… like On Golden Pond.

Then, members were treated to the last dress rehearsal before The Fox on the Fairway opened.

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.
