|Adventures of a Geek Dad||Tom Heck|
|I’m a long-time MAKER (even before there was such as term) and when I had kids I became a “Geek Dad”. I enjoy sharing my passion for technology and Making with my kids and their friends. I hope my fun talk inspires dads to explore tech and make things with their kids. I’m published in MAKE Magazine and the GEEK DAD blog.|
(8) THE UNDERSTUDY at NC Stage
February 13 – March 10, 2013
Directed by Charlie Flynn-McIver
Starring Matt Lutz, Neela Muñoz, and Scott Treadway!
This biting comedy tackles the insider world of big-budget Broadway productions, where talent is less important than buzz. Harry is an unknown but hard-working theatre actor, brought in to understudy for a handsome, charismatic movie star. Roxanne, the stage manager with secrets and dreams of her own, does her best to keep the actors on track, but the rehearsal veers nearly out of control between the actors’ bickering, the tricky set, and her own past with one of the actors.
The Understudy is a hilarious comedy about sour grapes, backstage love affairs, and the lure of Hollywood glitz and glitter. Theresa Rebeck built her career as a respected playwright and has gained recent acclaim as the creator of the hit television show “Smash.”

Note: I’ve already seen this show and can tell you it’s a lot of fun. (See next week’s issue for more information.)
(9) Jerry C. in NC: I went to see BARK THE MUSICAL @ ACT … last night for its “NC premier opening” and “my heart was warmed and my funny bone tickled”. It is a charming little musical starring six of Asheville’s most dynamic performers. BARK has powerhouse music by Asheville’s own David Troy Francis with book and lyrics by quintet of talented gentlemen to boot.
Whether harmonizing together or wowing the opening night audience with their solo work, these 3 men and 3 women put on quite a show under the baton of Musical Director, Brad Curtioff and the smooth steady hand of my dear friend and fellow ACT director, Eric Mills. Always a plus …. “on the button” choreography by McKenzie Kanipe and a decidedly facile, colorful set by ACT wunderkind designer, Jill Summers.
ACT versatile regulars: Jeff Catanese, Daniel Hensley, Carol Duermit and MK Penley welcomed two new exciting faces and voices: Jackie Canney and Garrett Funk to a fun-filled evening made in “canine heaven”!
The house was “full” and the audience of “dog-lovers” was made even “fuller” … Don’t miss it! Call 254-1320 or online atwww.ashevilletheatre.org
Today, tomorrow and 3 more weekends!
