The Pink Ladies and the Burger Palace Boys prepare for the Franklin High School Spring Musical “Grease: School Version.”

The Franklin High School Departments of Theater and Music present “Grease: School Version” May 30 and 31, at 7 p.m. at the Franklin High School Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $7 for adults, and $5 for students. Tickets are available at the FHS main office.

The project is supported by a Grassroots Arts Program grant from the Arts Council of Macon County and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources and a grant from the Macon County Academic Foundation.

“Grease:School Version” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Book music and lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey.

Downtown Franklin was awash with color on Saturday morning for Airing of the Quilts between rainshowers which fell intermittently throughout the day.

Few visitors braved the soggy weather as the success of the second festival of the season was affected by Mother Nature.

The Brasstown Concert Association (BCA) will conclude its 2013-2014 season on Sunday, May 25, by presenting rising talent from the area.

“We wanted to celebrate our 40th year of outstanding programming by showcasing young artists who will make the next 40 years an exciting musical adventure,” says BCA president George Heilner. “We hope other young musicians will attend the concert and be inspired to continue their own pursuit of musical excellence,” adds BCA board member Carole Hall.

The concert will feature violinist Ilsa Kelischek, a native of Brasstown and granddaughter of master violin maker George Kelischek.


It seemed rather fitting that Tiffany Terhart’s favorite hairpiece wasn’t worn by one of the primary actors during Western Carolina’s recent production of “Les Miserables.”

While the work of Terhart and her Southwestern Community College classmates wasn’t the main draw, they were vital to the production directed by Tony-nominated Broadway actor Terrence Mann. “Les Miserables” was on stage in Cullowhee earlier this month.
