Event Information
Friday, Nov 17, 2017 7:30 PM
Smoke on the Mountain is a bluegrass gospel musical set in 1938 in the Appalachian town of Mount Pleasant, North Carolina. After a 5-year hiatus, the Sanders family has decided to play the gospel circuit once again. First stop, Mount Pleasant Baptist church, which is not far from the pickle plant where so many in the town earn a living. Despite efforts to appear otherwise, the hilariously imperfect natures of the family, and Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe, unravel throughout the evening. What ends up being endearing to the congregation is their genuine weaknesses and strengths which are revealed through songs and stories.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain.

Smoke on the Mountain, a bluegrass gospel musical, is being directed by Will Sevier and will feature some of the finest musical theatre performers in the area. “The beauty of ‘Smoke’ is certainly the characters,” says Will Sevier, who is directing Smoke on the Mountain, his second musical to direct at STC since Fiddler on the Roof in 2015. “The characters are honest, flawed, and hilarious. In the characters, you might recognize your own family members, friends, and possibly even yourself.” One of the endearing elements of the show is that the actors play their own instruments and sing the bluegrass gospel musical. “With the actors performing as the orchestra in this musical, it causes the play to come to life in ways that some musicals cannot replicate. It really is a special show in that regard.”

Smoke on the Mountain does contain the use of one crude word that is not typical of a gospel musical. Parental guidance is suggested.

The theatre will be closed for Thanksgiving weekend.

Smoke on the Mountain is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
