Spectacle and passion prevail at tenth anniversary of RGNS Cirque

“Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo?” This famous line was never delivered during last weekend’s cirque adaptation of “Romeo & Juliet” put on by students at the Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School. In fact, none of the Bard’s dialogue was included in the performance. But this was no ordinary high school play.


Multi-platinum recording artists Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith are about to embark on a multi-city U.S. tour that will reunite these two iconic singer/songwriters for the first time on the road together (for a non-holiday tour) in more than two decades.

The “2 Friends” tour is slated to appear across the country beginning in early February, including the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 18. Undoubtedly a landmark experience for music fans, the tour showcases two of Christian music’s most recognized and beloved artists who have, together, won nine Grammy Awards and sold more than 47 million albums.
