A new exhibit, “Western Carolina University: The Progress of an Idea,” will open with a public reception and special performance Thursday, March 10, at WCU’s Mountain Heritage Center.

The exhibit traces how Robert Lee Madison’s “Cullowhee Idea” in 1893 became the seed that sprouted “normal schools” across North Carolina and resulted in WCU and its mission of service to the region, said Mountain Heritage Center curator Pamela Meister.

The reception, set for 5 to 7 p.m., will feature the premiere performance of “Madison,” a dramatic monologue created by award-winning author, dramatist and Sylva resident Gary Carden. The monologue will be performed by actor Steve Brady from 6 to 6:30 p.m. in the museum auditorium.


Presented by The Overlook Theatre Company





Eighty six years ago, in the winter of 1925, the young Tom Rickman opened for the first time the doors of a general store that has become a historic landmark in Macon County, and a special gathering place for the Cowee community.

To celebrate its anniversary, the Friends of the Rickman Store (FORS) are inviting neighbors and visitors to share an evening of Poetry and Music at the Store on Friday, March 4, at 7 p.m.

Cowee poet Brent Martin will share poems from his latest book “A Shout in the Woods.”



The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts will offer “Church Basement Ladies” presented by Art Fegan Entertainment. This touching and hilarious musical comedy is sure to bring down the house when it opens at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m.

“Church Basement Ladies” takes us behind the scenes (and below ground) to celebrate the church basement kitchen and the women who work there cooking meals for church functions.
