LYLAS Debut, August 12-13

ASHEVILLE -- LYLAS, Asheville's first all-female sketch comedy troupe opens its first show Friday for four performances at 35below, the black box theater downstairs at Asheville Community Theatre.

LYLAS (an acronym which stands for "Love Ya Like A Sis," commonly scrawled in yearbooks and across the bottom of notes passed between girls), is a collaboration between Jenny Bunn, Beth Keefauver, Emily McClain, Emily Miller and Betsy Puckett. Described as "the Rebelles -- but fatter and clothed" or "Menage -- without the musical talent," LYLAS has an Asheville take on sketch comedy.

LYLAS performances run at 7 and 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday night at 35below beneath Asheville Community Theatre, 35 E. Walnut Street, downtown Asheville.
