Smoke on the Mountain tells the story of a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938. Pastor Oglethorpe, the young and enthusiastic minister of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, has enlisted the Sanders Family in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into “the modern world.” Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of a congregation who wants 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. Smoke on the Mountain is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
'Til Beth Do Us Part
BY JESSIE JONES, NICHOLAS HOPE, & JAMES WOOTEN
DIRECTED BY KATHRYN WOOD
NEW DATES: FEBRUARY 11, 12, 13, & 14 —2021
In this side-splitting comic romp about marriage, career-driven Suzannah Hayden needs a lot more help on the home front than she’s getting from her husband, Gibby. Lately, nurturing his marriage of twenty-seven years hasn’t been the highest priority for Gibby, but pretty soon he’ll wish it had been. Enter Beth Bailey, Suzannah’s newly-hired assistant, a gregarious, highly-motivated daughter of the South. As Suzannah’s dependence on Beth grows and Gibby’s dislike of the woman deepens, Suzannah gives Beth carte blanche to change anything in the household that “will make it run more efficiently.” When Gibby realizes it’s Suzannah’s career Beth is really after, he sets out to save his marriage. His effort to stop Beth at any cost sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry -- you'll just have to see it to believe it. 'Til Beth Do We Part is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
