Stage 18

The harp is not the first instrument that comes to mind in an indie rock setting- so the ethereal instrumentals of L.A.-based harpist Mary Lattimore are often an unexpected accompaniment in the venues she plays. 

"I really love to bring the instrument into a modern situation where it doesn't seem so precious and so alien," Lattimore says.

Lattimore performs at Stage Eighteen in downtown Fayetteville this Saturday, June 2. 

  

As part of Intersections, Northwest Arkansas's monthlong celebration of women in the arts, Stage Eighteen presents an evening of comedy with four women comedians- showing the continuing evolution of the area's stand-up comedy scene this Tuesday, April 24.

  

Continuing our spotlight on Intersections NWA, a monthlong celebration of women in the arts, we visit with theatre company ArkansasStaged regarding two upcoming productions.

The plays, Natural Shocks by Lauren Gunderson and An Old Woman Speaks based on poems from Sue Coppernoll, feature solo performances from women April 20 and May 2 respectively. 

The Lyrique Quintette, the University of Arkansas's faculty woodwind ensemble, is hard at work on producing its first recording in more than a decade. Ahead of the May recording sessions they present a free concert Thursday, April 13, at the new performing arts venue Stage 18, just off the Fayetteville Square.

Although Stage 18 has quietly hosted shows, events and art nights since last November, the new performing arts venue just off the downtown square in Fayetteville celebrates its grand opening  this weekend with free all-ages events.
