“A wonderful local theater experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

HART is a regional theater in western North Carolina. It always has a terrific summer lineup of productions but also has a small theater for more intimate theater experiences in the fall and winter. A great place to visit while in town.

“Great Time at the Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We attended the Sunday Matinee performance of Neil Simon's "Lost in Yonkers". The theater has a wine bar and concession stand. Prices are moderate, including the admission. The theater is a very nice community theater and the actors were very proficient, approaching professional. It is hard to pick out the best of the actors, each one portraying their character flawlessly. We had a delightful afternoon and are looking forward to returning.

“Wonderful Gem in Western North Carolina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Although we live about 45 minutes from Waynesville, we would never have discovered this wonderful theatre on our own. After receiving a gift of season passes from our daughter 3 years ago, we have experienced exceptional performances which certainly exceeded our expectations.

“What Regional Theatre should be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We are on our second season as subscribers and are more than pleased with our decision to join those who enjoy HART. The pieces that are presented throughout the season are wide ranging and performed with a degree of professionalism that I for one did not expect when we moved to Western North Carolina. At the latest performance (La Cage aux Folles) we were delighted to stand and cheer with the entire audience in this beautiful mountain theatre. One of our local restaurants and the HART make for a great home-grown evening!

“Fantastic Shows”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Everything i have ever seen at HART was excellent. This may be a community Theatre but the shows are anything but amateur.
