Sept. 28, 2012. Blowing Rock’s Ensemble Stage will be holding auditions for the 2012-2013 fall/winter season and 2013 summer mainstage season on Sunday and Monday, Oct. 7-8. Auditions are by appointment only.
Aug. 3, 2012. “Fit to Kill” Runs Through This Sunday, and wow, the audience is loving this one. Maybe it’s because the show is not your typical theatre fare, especially for a resort-type area. It’s not some heart-warming or farce type comedy (though there is humor in it). It’s gritty and suspenseful with lots of twists and plenty of, “oh, my gosh! did that just happen?” moments.
June 21, 2012. What a difference a year makes. Last Summer’s opening production, “Catfish Moon,” averaged 27 patrons per performance. This year’s show, “Moon Over the Brewery,” sold out on opening night and again on Tuesday night. The Sunday afternoon crowd even came in at a respectable 60 percent capacity.
June 15, 2012. The High Country has so many wonderful events to offer its community and visitors. Check our site every Friday for something new and exciting to look forward to while you’re watching the hour hand crawl to 5 o’clock. Check out the Doc Watson celebration concert, stroll down Sunset Drive in Blowing Rock or see what Grandfather Mountain has going on. There’s always something fun to do in the High Country.

June 13, 2012. A 13-year-old daughter dealing with her mother’s budding romance is guaranteed to be difficult, and possessing a genius level IQ won’t change that. Moon Over The Brewery, which opens at the Blowing Rock Auditorium June 16, is a tender comedy that tells the story of extraordinarily intelligent and precocious 13-year-old Amanda as she navigates the dangerous territory of her mom’s budding romance.
