Oleanna Opens in 35below: A young, uncertain co-ed, seeking help from her professor. An academic, secure in his opinions, juggling his tenure nomination, a new house, a growing career. The two discuss education, understanding, society, seemingly forming a bond. The next time they meet, all has changed. What happened? Who is right? Who is the powerful and who the powerless? An examination of power and language, of relations and perceptions, this modern classic by David Mamet is sure to engage and enrage and to provoke discussion long after the stunning ending. Directed by Chris Allison. Produced by and starring Kier Klepzig and Chelsey Lee Gaddy. Oleanna will be performed January 8-24, 2016 with performances Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $15.00 and are available online at www.ashevilletheatre.org, by phone at 828-254-1320 or in person at the ACT Box Office.
It Goes Without Saying: Asheville Community Theatre and NYS3’s LEAD Productions are proud to partner to present Bill Bowers’ auto-biographical tour-de-force, It Goes Without Saying. In this 75-minute joy ride, Bill Bowers shares hilarious, heart-breaking, and unbelievable true stories from both his career and his lifelong exploration of the role silence plays in all our lives. He employs an eloquent mixture of music, monologues and mime in his on-going investigation of the silence surrounding the enigmatic matters of gender in our culture today. It Goes Without Saying will be performed January 9, 2016 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25.00 and are available online at www.ashevilletheatre.org, by phone at 828-254-1320 or in person at the ACT Box Office.

Tickets are $12.00 and are available online at www.ashevilletheatre.org, by phone at 828-254-1320 or in person at the ACT Box Office.
