“Neck of the Woods” Returns to the Renaissance Centre Oct. 16

The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts welcomes the return of the “Neck of the Woods” performance series on Friday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m.

Presented and sponsored by Wake Forest ARTS, Neck of the Woods is a variety performance series featuring emerging local artists. Each show is different and may consist of several performing arts acts, including actors, dancers, musicians, comedians, writers and spoken word artists.

The Oct. 16 installment of Neck of the Woods will feature bluegrass musicians The Lang Sisters; a one-act play, “One Lane Bridge;” harpist Heather Hills; and country singer Justin Fouts.

The Lang Sisters, Chloe and Jessica, perform extensively at festivals, fiddlers’ conventions, nursing homes, arts programs, civic and corporate functions, fundraisers and Christian outreach events. The duo has also performed for three years at the IBMA Wide Open Bluegrass Festival in Raleigh.

Produced through Forest Moon Theatre, Wake Forest’s community theater, the evening’s second performance features an all-teenage cast performing the one-act play, “One Lane Bridge.” Reminiscent of a “Twilight Zone” episode, this mystery thriller is just in time for the Halloween season.

Following the play, talented musician Heather Hills will perform. An accomplished pianist and harpist, Heather will explore new possibilities of popular music for the harp while also performing a traditional repertoire that drew her to the instrument.

Rounding out the evening’s entertainment is Justin Fouts, the winner of the 2015 Wake Forest Has Talent competition. A student at Wakefield High School, Justin is a country singer and an accomplished musician who is sure to delight the audience.

Area residents are invited to come out and enjoy a truly unique and entertaining community event and show your support for our local artists.

Refreshments will be available for purchase, and a cash bar will be provided offering a variety of beer and wine.

Tickets are $ 5 (plus tax) and may be purchased online at www.wakeforestnc.gov/tickets-events.aspx or at the Renaissance Centre Box Office, 405 S. Brooks St.
