Smoke on the Mountain
|Atlanta Lyric Theatre|
|$38.55 - $38.55|
|Book by Constance Ray. Conceived by Alan Bailey. Musical arrangements by Mike Craver and Mark Hardwick - It’s back! Smoke on the Mountain, the original runaway hit that spawned two sequels, Sanders Family Christmas and Mount Pleasant Homecoming, returns to the Marietta Square this summer! If you’ve seen the other two, here’s an opportunity to see the first or to revisit the quirky family in their original gospel concert at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The popular Smoke on the Mountain features a rural, gospel-singing Baptist family in 1930′s North Carolina — loving father Burl, Bible-quoting mother Vera, twin brother Dennis and his star-struck twin sister Denise, the black sheep Uncle Stanley, the non-singing June, and Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe, head of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The score includes popular hymns including “I’ll Fly Away,” “Power in the Blood,” “Bringing in the Sheaves,” and “I Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now.” The first in the ever-popular series featuring the singing Sanders Family, Smoke on the Mountain premiered at Marietta’s beloved, now-shuttered Theatre in the Square in 1991. This perennial revival favorite features bluegrass songs from the gospel hit parade, sprinkled with the hapless pranks of this lovable and talented family. Reprising their roles in Smoke on the Mountain are Alan Kilpatrick as Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe, Karen Howell as Vera, Jennifer Akin as June, John Peterson as Burl, and Scott DePoy as Uncle Stanley.|
