Take a ride with '21A'HART Studio season opens with one-man show Jan. 18
The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre’s winter Studio season will begin Jan. 18 with the opening of a one-man comedy by Kevin King titled “21A.” The action is set on the 21A bus in Minneapolis and the star, Tim Stoeckel, plays every character on the bus. This is a contemporary comedy, so there is some adult language but it is fairly light. The HART Studio is one of the area’s most popular winter events. Five productions will be mounted over the next 10 weeks, including two major musicals. The rapid fire pace will keep your head spinning with some of the region’s finest theater. All of HART’s award-winning productions have come from its Studio.
Seating is general admission, but reservations are recommended, as shows do sell out. The Feichter Studio is part of the Performing Arts Center’s back stage and seats just 70 people and is only three rows deep. The intimate setting has made the space a favorite for area theater goers. You can go in, grab a cup of coffee, and sit back for some amazing performances. To make reservations, patrons only need to call the box office at 456-6322 and leave a message on the theater's answering machine. Tickets are also available online.
“21A” has performances at the HART Theater, 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville. at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan.18 and 19, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20. Productions are often held over for a second weekend, if audience demand warrants or if inclement weather forces the cancelation of any performances. Patrons should call the theatre should weather become questionable at any time during the winter season. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $6 for atudents to all studio plays. A Studio season pass is also available, which offers a 40-percent discount off of regular ticket prices.
