Calendar of Events
Looking for things to do in Hendersonville, NC? Whether you’re a local or just passing through we’ve got loads of great tips and events to help you find your perfect adventure.
LaZoom Tours will hold general auditions for our 2019 season. We are looking for actors and comedians to lead our City, Haunted, and Kids’ tours.
TIME AND LOCATION
Auditions will be held by appointment at the LaZoom Room (76 Biltmore Ave) on Monday & Tuesday, February 18th & 19th (10am – 2pm; 6pm – 10pm). Auditions will consist of reading from a script. Performers will be asked to write some of their own comedic material into the script prior to the audition.
To request an audition, please email [email protected] with your preferred day and section of time. We will reply with an exact audition time, the audition sides, and some instructions. Please include a headshot/photo and resume with your audition request.
REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCES
Rehearsals will begin in March. New guides will begin leading tours as soon as April. Tours run seven days a week during the busy season. New guides will perform 4-6 shows per week during our busy weeks.
The Guide is with the audience the entire tour and performs 60-90 minutes of scripted and improvised material, both informational and funny. Guides work with the Production Manager to create their own colorful characters, and are expected to write some of their own material that enhances their character.
The ideal candidate will have a flexible schedule. Weekends, dates surrounding major holidays, and peak tourist seasons are frequently required.
LaZoom Tours is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the casting of its productions. Performers of all races, ethnicities, and gender identities are welcome and encouraged to audition. Guides are paid a competitive stipend per performance and collect tips. For more information, please visit our website www.lazoomtours.com
Winter can be the most beautiful time of the year at Chimney Rock. Leafless trees make for expansive views of Lake Lure and the Hickory Nut Gorge. The sky is clear; you’re likely to find a quiet spot to sit and enjoy the peacefulness. You may even see a critter scamper by you in the forest. Capture that special moment or scene on your camera, enter it in our Winter Wonders Photo Contest and tell us about it. We’ll use the winning entries on our website and Facebook album, and you’ll win some fun prizes. Photos must be taken within the Chimney Rock section of the Park.
Cost: No additional cost to enter.
All are welcome to attend our monthly Manna Food Distribution. No questions ask other than how many are in your family. Every Third Tuesday at 2:30pm.

We’ve been talking to the folks from Bardic Alchemy, a Celtic Rock band from Asheville and they’ve agreed to play at Triskelion as many Tuesdays as they can come down to the Brewery.
Bardic Alchemy is a brand new element in the Celtic Rock world. This trio, based in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina is comprised of multi-instrumentalist Connell Sanderson, guitarist Nick Marcone and percussionist and vocalist Tyler Watts.
Bardic Alchemy is best described as a psychedelic trip into a musical world that is heavily inspired by the Celtic musical traditions…run through various effects pedals. Everything from soothing, mellifluously reverberating whistle melodies supported by groovy guitar lines and thumping djembe beats to high energy dance tunes on the Scottish and Irish pipes to three part vocal harmonies and even improvised pieces, Bardic Alchemy is a surprisingly dynamic and unpredictable musical journey.
So… Tuesdays… will now be…
Celtic Rock Tuesday!
Come out and see what the fuss is all about! Team Trivia Tuesday at Sanctuary Brewing Company with host Josh Dunkin!

The game is free to play and the top two teams each week receive a gift card of $40 (1st place) and $20 (2nd place).
Ready to start having fun working out? Begin your pole dancing journey with our 8 Week Intro to Pole Series: All ages, body types, and fitness levels welcome!
Start from the beginning and learn the fundamentals of spins, climbs, and sexy dance moves on the static and spin pole. This concentrated eight week series is great for building strength and a quicker understanding of the mechanics, timing, and grace that is helpful for pole dancing.
We will focus on the static pole for the first 6 weeks and move to an introduction of the beauty of spin pole for the last two.
Pole dancing is fun, an amazing workout, and sensually expressive. Enjoy learning with the same group of students each week who are all brand new to pole.
Bring heels because they are fun to dance in and a lot less intimidating than they seem! Wear shorts that come at least 2 inches above the knee. Do not wear lotion.
We will take a look at past Oscar winning movies, actors/actresses, hosts, and this years nominees as well. Movie buff? Come out for a glamorous night of film! Unlike the Oscars this year, we actually will have hosts!
7:30 Host Band : Dryman Mountain Boys
9:30PM Sessions : Open Jam
Every Tuesday evening Isis presents our Tuesday Bluegrass Sessions. The sessions are hosted each week by a local bluegrass musician with friends or a band. Following the host band, Bluegrass musicians from the Asheville area gather on stage to jam in an open session. Occasionally, we feature a touring band that will perform prior to the open session and help co-host the jam. It’s always a great evening of music and community.
