CULLOWHEE – Western Carolina University musical theater students will present Cole Porter’s classic musical “Kiss Me, Kate” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday- Saturday, March 24-26, and at 3 p.m., Sunday, March 27, in the Fine and Performing Arts Center.

The play chronicles the complicated relationships on and off the stage of a group of theater actors as they prepare a production of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.” Musical numbers punctuate the proceedings, including the songs “So In Love,” “Too Darn Hot” and “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.” The show stars WCU students Patrick Detloff, Casey Weems, Amanda Kouri, Joe Callahan, Peter O’Neal, Jonathan Cobrda, Tyler McKenzie, Tommy Cooley, David Haines and Cameron Feuerhelm, among others.

Since 1968, Blood Sweat & Tears, a musical institution, has left an indelible mark on the American music scene. One of the greatest horn bands in the history of popular music, BS&T’s alumni roster reads like a Who’s Who of the world’s greatest jazz and rock musicians.

As BS&T has evolved through the years, it has maintained its commitment to high standards by including in its current roster the most talented musicians available. Starting out in Greenwich Village in New York, the band won worldwide acclaim, becoming the first in many categories: first band to tour behind the Iron Curtain, first band to have three hit singles from the same record, first band to combine rock with jazz, and of course, Sunday night Woodstock, yes, the real Woodstock.
