Up next at the HART Theatre in Waynesville: “The Last Romance,” a romantic comedy to warm your heart.

Written by the same author of HART’s hit, “Over the River and Through the Woods,” “The Last Romance” will feature three of HART’s most popular actors, Lyn Donley, Stephen Gonya, and making her sensational return to the HART stage, Suzanne Tinsley.

Tinsley has the distinction of having the longest association with HART as a performer. She appeared as Ms. Anna in HART’s first production, “The King and I,” in 1984. She last appeared opposite HART Executive Director Steve Lloyd in “All My Sons” in 2016.

The cast is rounded out by Dakota Benfield, who previously appeared in “S’Wonderful” with cast mates Donley and Gonya.

“The Last Romance” is by three-time Tony Award winner, Joe DiPietro, whose other works include hits like “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” “Memphis,” “All Shook Up,” and “Nice Work if You Can Get It.”

In the current play, a widower named Ralph decides to take a different path on his daily walk — one that leads him to an unexpected second chance at love. This feel good comedy is just what audiences need as they see Ralph regain a happiness that seemed all but lost.

HART’s production will have performances Aug. 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 8, 15 and 22 at 2 p.m.

For reservations, call the HART Box Office at 828-456-6322, Tuesday to Saturday, 1-5 p.m., or go to harttheatre.org. “The Last Romance” is suitable for all audiences. HART Theatre is located at 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville.
