Sart WoodyHard Travelin' With Woody, a critically acclaimed multimedia solo show with the music and artworks of Woody Guthrie, written and performed by Randy Noojin, will be presented as a benefit for Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre (SART) on the campus of Mars Hill University, 44 College Street, Mars Hill, NC 28754, Thursday-Saturday, July 27-29 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, July 30 at 2:30pm. Tickets are donation only, reservations are suggested, please call (828) 689-1239. Visit SARTplays.com to make a donation or reserve tickets.

Hard Travelin' With Woody began its international tour soon after its premiere at The New York International Fringe Festival in 2011. Randy Noojin channels folk singer/activist Woody Guthrie, playing for a union meeting of striking mine workers.

The show is packed with Woody’s wit and humor, over a dozen of his greatest songs, and projections of his astonishing and rarely seen artworks. Guthrie’s views on income inequality, police brutality, and the conditions facing migrant workers resonate with an urgency that is remarkably relevant today.
