Smoke On The Mountain

SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAINThis play tells the story of a Saturday night gospel sing at a small country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938. The show features the Sanders family, a traveling group making its return to performing after a five-year hiatus. Between songs, each family member witnesses – telling a story about an important event in his or her life. Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of the congregation, who want to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry, and they reveal their true – and hilariously imperfect – natures. By the evening’s end, the Sanders family has endeared themselves to us by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs.

Friday July 11th at 8 pm
Saturday July 12th at 3 pm and 8 pm

Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling.

The Comedy of Errors, March-April 2014

Comedy-of-Errors-LGAnna DeVault directs Willaim Shakespeare’s hilarious play, The Comedy of Errors.

The plot of this play is exactly the kind of thing for which the term “madcap” was coined.  The humor has survived the many changes our culture has undergone since Shakespeare’s time.

This is one of Shakespeare’s most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity resulting from the presence of not one but two sets of identical twins.  He was writing pop culture, and in some ways, pop culture hasn’t changed a bit in 400 years.
