Asheville Community Theatre's 67th Season

The Stage is Set!

Asheville Community Theatre is infused with the creativity, energy, and vision of the finest talents in our community - and in our 67th season, they'll all have the chance to shine on our stage!

Naughty But Nice! captures the sophistication of Cole Porter and the wit of Noel Coward. Departing from the more traditional repertory, the musical design of this intimate cabaret revue takes us to the inner circles of New York, Paris, London and Cannes where both the composers held court. This collection of saucy songs in tandem with a few marvelous monologues has the appeal of several dry martinis.

Neighbors picks up where A Raisin in the Sun ended and well before the world invented in Clybourne Park could exist. Chuck and Mary Robinson, a liberal white couple, have decided to sell their house to Bill and Vicky Gunther, an affluent black couple. The Robinsons resolve to stand firm in their principles and face whatever problems may result from this decision, but gradually, unspoken tensions emerge, the facade of self conscious political correctness is stripped away, and all pretense vanishes - on both sides - leaving a wreckage of good intentions.

Our protagonist, for whom the play is named, has sworn off sex despite living in New York, where "sex is not something you can avoid." Suddenly, just after he's reconciled himself to celibacy, Jeffrey's friends introduce him to the man of his dreams, who also happens to be HIV-positive. What follows is an audacious and moving romantic comedy with a difference-one in which the quest for love and really fabulous clothes meet, and where unflagging humor prevails even when tragedy might be just around the corner.

Incongruence features monologues and vignettes derived from interviews with transgender men and women of all generations and backgrounds. This fascinating work embraces the fact that we are all on the same journey despite gender, orientation, race or ethnicity.

There are some stories that are just so good they need to be shared with an assembled audience. Local actor/comedian Tom Chalmers invites you to take part in what is quickly becoming one of Asheville's most popular series, Listen to This. A storytelling format in the vein of "This American Life," Listen to This is an evening hosted by Chalmers with stories and songs from some of Asheville's most interesting writers, performers, and citizens. Each installment features a central theme (past shows have featured stories about everything from gluttony to mistaken identity). Real people. Real stories. Real good times.
