Legacy Theatre Presents Smoke On The Mountain, Opening Jan. 31

Famous '30s Play Is a Prequel to A Sanders Family Christmas

     If you liked the recent performance of A Sanders Family Christmas at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts of Coweta County, you will probably also like its prequel, Smoke on The Mountain, which will be performed soon at the Legacy Theatre in Tyrone.  There seems to be an increasing interest in the rural life of that time period ever since the popular movie and CD O Brother, Where Art Thou?.  For this reason, although we are now focussing our attention upon Christmas, it would probably be advisable to begin thinking now about this play before the tickets are all sold.  The following information is provided by the Theatre's publicity director, Dustin Lewis:

Book by Constance Ray, Conceived by Alan Bailey, Musical arrangements by Mike Craver & Mark Hardwick.
January 30th - Feb 22nd, 2009
Performances:  Fridays-Saturdays 8pm; Saturdays-Sundays 3pm

Tickets: Adults $25; Seniors 60+/Students $22; Children 12 and under $15; Group rates available

     The year is 1938. It's Saturday night in Mount Pleasant, NC, and the Reverend Oglethorpe has invited the Sanders Family Singers to provide an upliftin' evening of singin' and witnessin'. The audience is invited to pull up a pew and join in the rollicking good time. More than two dozen songs, many of them vintage pop hymns, and hilarious stories from the more or less devout Sanders provide a richly entertaining evening that has audiences clapping, singing, laughing and cheering.
