Arts & Entertainment

Celebrate all things imaginary as Horton the Elephant, the Cat In the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, the Sour Kangaroo, and more, sing and dance their way off the pages of some of Dr. Seuss’ best loved stories in “Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss” March 1 and 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

“Happy Birthday” is not just a show for kids, but for everyone who enjoys an evening at the theater. Many adults will remember the characters and stories from their childhood and will enjoy seeing them spring to life in bright colors on the stage.


The First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Session Series at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center will continue Thursday, March 3, with a concert of bluegrass gospel music by Mountain Faith.

The group’s 7 p.m. performance will be followed by an 8 p.m. jam session in which local musicians are invited to participate.


The Macon County Community Foundation will be continuing its Mystery Dinner offering, “I Wed Three Wives” on Feb. 25, 26, at 6:30, at Fat Buddies restaurant in Franklin.

Herb Fillbrook is married to three different women, all at the same time. When all three wives and Herb show up at the Hotel Winston, there are bound to be some serious confrontations – maybe even a murder.


Every year, the Highlands Chamber of Commerce organizes a chili cook off and each year is a little different from the previous one. This year, the theme is “Western” all the way, from the décor right down to the attire and the public is invited to get out your boots, bandanas, hats and come to the Highlands Community Building Saturday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. Mike Murphy will provide the mood music for the evening.

For chili-lovers who would rather eat than cook, tickets will be sold at the door, $20 per person (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and children 12 and under get in free. Soft drinks, beer and wine will be served to help cleanse the palate and put out the fire. Diners will decide the winners of the evening’s competition by voting for their Favorite Chili, Hottest Chili and Most Unusual.
