Listen To This

Hosted by Tom Chalmers
Usually the last Thursday of the month!

7:30 pm

Performed in 35below. There are some stories that are just so good they need to be shared with an assembled audience. Local actor/comedian Tom Chalmers invites you to take part in what is quickly becoming one of Asheville’s most popular series, Listen to This. A storytelling format in the vein of “This American Life,” Listen to This is an evening hosted by Chalmers with stories and songs from some of Asheville’s most interesting writers, performers, and citizens. Each installment features a central theme (past shows have featured stories about everything from gluttony to mistaken identity). Real people. Real stories. Real good times.

RTS: Arms and The Man

by George Bernard Shaw – directed by Jim Reid
August 30,31, September 1, 2019

Friday and Saturday at 2:30 pm in 35below; Sunday at 2:30 pm at the Reuter Center on UNCA’s campus

Often viewed as Shaw's wittiest play, this is a borderline farce that will stimulate serious thinking about the nature of both romance and war. What is Raina to do when she finds that an enemy soldier has taken refuge in her room? What will her fiancee say? The plot, of course, thickens! Performed as Readers Theatre as a part of The Autumn Players' Readers Theatre Showcase Series.
