The Overlook Theatre Company’s theatrical performance of “Where the Wild Things Are” is based on the children’s book of the same name. It follows a character named Max who makes mischief at home while playing in a wolf costume and is sent to bed without supper as punishment. His imagination runs rampant in his room as a wild forest and sea grows. In the land of Wild Things, he meets fearsome-looking monsters but proves to be the fiercest of all.


The third show of the 2011-12 University Theater’s Mainstage season, a concert version of “Music Is” by George Abbott, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on the campus of Western Carolina University.

The play features music by Richard Adler with lyrics by Will Holt and has never been revived since it left Broadway. Catherine Cox, who played Viola, a lead role, in the original production, will guest direct the first performance since the closing in 1976.



Poetry Alive! will present a program of dynamic poetry performance on Tuesday, February 7, at 7:00 p.m., in the Macon County Public Library Meeting Room in Franklin. Performing memorized poems in theatrical style, Poetry Alive! professional actors transform verse into script, and audience members into fellow actors. The result is a high-energy, high participation, highly entertaining show with an every-age appeal.

Founded in 1984, Asheville-based Poetry Alive! has performed to more than six million people in 48 states and many foreign countries including Guam, South Korea, and Peru.
