Join us as we come together to support Terpsicorps' artistic statement of protest, TRANSFORM.   Generously hosted by Strada, we will start the evening at 5:30pm with cash bar cocktails on the roof of Social Lounge with a special improvisational performance by the Terpsicorps dancers.   Terpsicorps' artistic director, Heather Maloy, will share with us her vision for the upcoming show and her motivation behind this bold stand against injustice.  Then at 6:30, we will move to the private upstairs dining room at Strada for an incredible meal. Sample menu  Includes one glass of wine Primi:  house salad option Entree's:  rigatoni, veggie lasagna, or chicken Marsala Dessert:  tiramisu or cannoli (Options will be available for vegetarian and gluten sensitive patrons.) TRANSFORM aims to be a full expression of the organization’s vital core values, an act of creative resistance to laws of oppression. The work conveys individual stories of transformation, offering the audience a cross section of human experience across diverse struggles and issues. Maloy strives to press the audience to examine that no one person's struggle is more valid or deserving of our understanding than another, to celebrate the beauty and importance of living a full life in all of its forms. Transform aims to be a uniting force that embraces the pain and exaltation of the never-ending changes that make up the life of every human being. This season comes at a pivotal time for Terpsicorps as the organization has just opened The Academy at Terpsicorps, a professional training school for dancers in Asheville with a particular mission to offer dance at scholarship to low income families across the region. The mission of the new school is grounded in a deep commitment that any child might have the opportunity for self-realization.  Protest theatre has an incredible power to encourage great social change. Like anything else however, great work requires financial support. After a year of substantial construction and start up expense, generously funded in part through this very platform, Terpsicorps is starting out their season in greater financial need than they have encountered in more than a decade. Employing world class dancers, creating visuals that inspire the mind, and marketing this project so that it can perform it's mission to its fullest is expensive but art can change the world! For tickets to Transform, call 828-257-4530 or purchase online.  To donate additional funds to the cause, visit our gofundme campaign.

The Mountaintop by Katori Hal June 2-18, 2016 Directed by Steph Hickling Beckman Great theater can emerge from a simple yet evocative question: “What if?” Katori Hall, winner of the Blackburn Prize for outstanding women playwrights, asks the question: What did Martin Luther King Jr. do the night before he died? Who did he talk to? What did he say? Her play attempts to answer these questions, albeit in an imaginative rather than realistic way. The Mountaintop, took home England’s Olivier Award for best play. Starring Desmond Zampella as Dr. Martin Luther King, and Kirby Gibson as Camae *Early Bird Special: Purchase your ticket(s) by March 5th and pay no fees!!

The Mountaintop by Katori Hal June 2-18, 2016 Directed by Steph Hickling Beckman It’s a stormy night at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is exhausted.He’s working on tomorrow’s speech, and he’s fresh out of smokes. He rings room service for coffee. He calls his wife and fiddles with his phrasing.His coffee arrives, along with a sexy, sassy hotel maid named Camae. And that’s when things get weird. Just who exactly is this Camae? How did King spend his last few hours alive? Was he scared? Angry? Did he have regrets? Is God a woman? (Wait, what?) The questions build as the night (and Camae’s true identity) unfolds. Mountaintop is Katori Hall’s attempt to answer these questions (though not in the way you’d expect). Since its 2009 London premiere, the show has captivated audiences across the United States (including a 2011 Broadway run starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett). And it’s not because of King the legend. Or King the martyr. No — here we see an imperfect man, chain-smoking, flirting with a woman who isn’t his wife, trying to talk his way out of God’s plans.We bear witness to his soul, in all its messy humanity. We laugh at his humor and shake our heads at his eloquence. We empathize with his ego and his self-doubt. If the timing of an MLK-themed show seems… interesting, that’s because it is. Steph Hickling-Beckman, Managing Artistic Director:  “At a time when state level, elected officials are tampering with and quantifying our constitutionally granted rights, it's important to remember just how far we've come (and from where), rather than feel discouraged by how far we still have to go. This play is a haunting yet hopeful reminder of one of Dr. King’s most enduring truths: ‘Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable.  Every step...requires...the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.’ ” In 1963, King dreamed a Dream for us.Mountaintop invites us to reexamine that Dream through 2016-colored glasses. And asks us — Do we like what we see?  The Mountaintop features: Desmond Zampella as Dr. King, and Kirby Gibson as Camae *Early Bird Special: Purchase your ticket(s) by June 4th and pay no fees!!

Instructor Jacqueline Sullivan teaches painting with acrylics and using acrylic mediums and will emphasize taking shapes and elements out as well as adding new ones, always looking for a balance of simplicity and complexity. She encourages students to work from their own resources, transferring the energy of their bodies, through the brush, onto the canvas or paper. Working intuitively, we will define the composition of these shapes using the principles and elements of design. This abstract painting class will emphasize building  on the movement of shapes with tones and textures, creating movement within the abstract work. Tonality and lines make shapes and the movements of those shapes draws in the viewer and holds their attention. You will have the opportunity to try many techniques, such as: glazing, mark making with acrylic paints, gesso techniques and more, creating your own textures with acrylic media. We will also explore the use of different acrylic mediums and paints The class is open to all levels and instructor will work individually with students at their level Supply List: [students are responsible to being to workshop] Stretched canvas – at least 12” x 12” – no larger than 24” in any direction, you may need more than one Acrylic brush – about 1” in width I like the Goldenä Taklon brushes 9" x 12" Strathmore 300 series Watercolor Paper Pad Brushes - I prefer a synthetic brush, I like to have a 1" flat brush and a # 6 - #10 round Water container – 16 to 32 oz plastic Styrofoam plates for palettes or heavy duty water proof paper plates Apron Notebook and Pen Roll of paper towels Your favorite fluid acrylics ( a lot will be provided)  Instructor Provided Supplies: Fluid  and High flow Acrylic Paints on 6 - 8 colors Various glues, mediums and sizing Markmaking tools Stencils Pan Pastels Hand outs and more!

A shockingly macabre reward.

Just hold on to your head. BIO: Mx. trixxie carr is a musician, drag artist and playwright from San Francisco, CA (FB: Beatrix Carr). The SF Bay Times says, “She's fabulous. This triple threat (at least!) has a dynamic stage presence, powerful voice, and hot moves.” - trixxie has traveled nationally and internationally, performing everywhere from street fairs and dance venues, to museums and art festivals. Her albums "A Souvenir for the Existentialists" and "Salome, Dance for Me" are both available on iTunes and at cdbaby.com. "Trixxie carr! You made a Mess on that stage!" http://trixxiecarr.com/ For more about trixxie check out this documentary short, “The Right to RULE” Or this clip of trixxie playing John the Baptist in Salome THE BALL: After the show [70 min + intermission], join us for the costume ball of the season!

Rilke said: "All the soarings of my mind begin in my blood." Find your most uninhibited playzone, and turn a look to match. Let's do it in our unique Asheville style, at a ceiling-busting San Francisco level, to make our special visiting star feel at home.

Description:
Funny Business at The Millroom Presents Sick of Stupid Comedy Tour Featuring Cliff Cash, Tom Simmons, and Stewart Huff SICK OF STUPID COMEDY TOUR @ THE MILLROOM Featuring Cliff Cash, Tom Simmons, and Stewart Huff Saturday, June 25th @ 8:00pm $12 advance / $14 at the door TICKETS @ http://sickofstupidavl.eventbrite.com Sick of Stupid Comedy Tour Standup Comics Tom Simmons, Steward Huff, and Clifton Cash have joined forces and are touring six Southern cities as the Sick of Stupid Comedy Tour. Sick of Stupid promises to give audiences an intelligent, comedic look at all things Southern. With a growing perception of the South as populated exclusively by camo-wearing, gay-hating, Confederate-flag waving, fanatical white people, Sick of Stupid will become the voice of intellectual Southern comedy and become the voice of the new South. “Some Southerners love Duck Dynasty and Honey Boo Boo and lowering the rear end of their pickup truck. We probably aren’t the voice for them, but we hope we can be the voice for the Southerners who find all this stuff absurd,” said Cliff Cash. Duck Dynasty, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeff Foxworthy have their place, but we want to give a voice to smart, progressive Southerners and provide a fresh take on life—politics, culture, and the past, present, and future—in the South as we live it,” said Clifton Cash.
