Peacock is Hayesville's Hidden Gem

     People who have attended performances at Hayesville, NC's Peacock Performing Arts Center know that it is a gem of superior quality. Those who haven't attended yet are in for a stunning surprise:  big-city entertainment in a quiet mountain town. 
     Built in the 1980s as the result of Lilith Lidseen's dream of creating a performing arts center for the people of this area, the theater boasts 250 comfortable seats, superior sound and lighting, and a steady flow of stellar performances including four plays a year that make audiences laugh, swoon, or shake in their boots; musical concerts of great variety; and family entertainment such as juggling and magic shows. It is also available for rentals.
     Miss Lidseen, who has been described as part Auntie Mame and part Noel Coward sophisticate, loved this community and the performing arts. The construction of the Peacock fulfilled her dream, even though she was not alive when it was completed in 1986.  Today, under the management of the Lilith Lidseen Performing Arts Association, the center not only features community theatre and live music, but ballroom dance classes and children's drama camps. Still on the agenda for this season are a concert by One Leg Up, a vibrant musical mixture on September 27; Guilty Conscience, a psychological mystery that promises great suspense, October 10-12 and 17-19; and the special Christmas production It's a Wonderful Life on November 30.
     Volunteers dedicate themselves to preserving and expanding the Peacock, which is a nonprofit. True to its mission as a community performing arts center, the Peacock was recently annexed voluntarily into Hayesville city limits. According to Mayor Harry Baughn, “it's a symbiotic thing that helps both the city and the Peacock.”

     Please see the History of the Peacock Performing Arts Center (formerly the Peacock Playhouse) for more information.
