Talks to MCN about music, movies, and balancing it all

In today's society, it is not unusual for someone to have two jobs. In fact, most people have more than one job. But very few people have two careers. Two careers that send them all over the world. Two careers that simultaneously allow every household in the country to know your name. Two careers that children grow up dreaming about.

Kevin Costner has not only built two careers that skyrocketed him to world fame, but he has done so the old fashioned way: with hard work, and a lot of balancing.


“The Fantasticks,” the world’s longest-running musical, will bring a steampunk-styled allegory about deceit, disillusionment and devotion to Western Carolina University’s John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on Sunday, April 27, at 5 p.m.

Narrated by bandit El Gallo, the romantic musical follows the lives of young Matt and Luisa as their fathers con the pair into becoming lovers. The fathers, Mr. Hucklebee and Mr. Bellomy, believe their fake feud will only bring their children closer together. Ultimately, the couple’s disillusionment causes them to discover a deeper, more matured love.

The production features WCU School of Stage and Screen alumnus Peter O’Neal, a 2013 graduate, in the role of Matt.


The cast, band and dancers from the upcoming production of the “Echoes of the Cotton Club” radio show re-creation at Western Carolina University recently learned that the show has been registered with the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival.

Two regional representatives of KCACTF, an organization committed to identifying and promoting quality in university productions, will attend the “Echoes of the Cotton Club” performance in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 24. The representatives also will meet with the cast to provide feedback and a peer review of the production, and will prepare a written report for the students and production team.


The Western Carolina University Wind Ensemble and Symphony Band will present their final concert of the 2013- 14 academic year at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, an event that will showcase the talents of student soloists and student conductors chosen through an audition process.

The concert, to be held in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the WCU campus, is open to the public free of charge.
