My wife and I saw our first HART production 15 years ago and have returned for almost every production since then. We get to the theater in London every couple of years and find that the HART productions rival the West End for costuming, set decoration, professionalism and overall enjoyment. The play selection runs the gamut from small comedies to large musicals, from Chicago to the Grapes of Wrath, from an original Robin Hood to a fantastic Sound of Music, and everything in between. The superb selection of productions each season provides opportunities for the very young to the very old and demonstrates the genius of the Artistic Director, Steve Lloyd, who has been with HART from its founding. We look forward to each new production and often see shows twice. You just can't go wrong attending a HART production or contibuting to the theatre.

I discovered HART by hearing so many others talk about what an asset is was to our community. Frankly, I thought these were probably people with a vested interest in the organization. Well, I found out last year when I started attending the performances that if anything the reports were under estimating the value. HART touches so many constituents, the actors, the live theatre lovers, the business in Waynesville and the larger community in and out side of Haywood County. The plays are fresh, some times a little "risky" but always tasteful with all the right cautions for young audiences. One of the most interesting events HART sponsors each year is called Haywood's Got Talent. I personally helped with the auditions in 2012. The participants were virtually all local, amateur performers who got the opportunity to show their talent, get stage experience and make their families proud. How much better does it get. HART recognizes the obligations it has to the community and that the current facilities does not maximize their potential impact. The current focus to add a second theatre will go a long way to fully supporting this community. I now participate on the HART Board and find it very refreshing (especially since it is a non profit and the Board members are volunteers.) Everyone is a huge supporter of the current and future plans and works hard to fulfil the dream!!

I have been involved with HART as an actor and occasional board member since 1987. It has been rewarding to watch HART evolve from a ragtag group of players to a very well respected community theater with its own home. Under the leadership of executive director Steve Lloyd for over 20 years, HART has gotten more successful and put on better productions every year. We have never had a season in the red! Our facility is the most heavily programmed in Western North Carolina.
The personal highlight for me is that my high school senior son is the high school intern this year, being involved in every production. He plans to study theater in college next year, and his fire was significantly kindled during his time on the HART stage. There have been many kids over the years who have gone on to theatrical careers after their involvement with HART.
