EASLEY — The Easley Foothills Playhouse’s production of Smoke on the Mountain is set to kick off for the summer playbill with plenty of wholesome entertainment for all.
Smoke on the Mountain tells the story of a Saturday night gospel singing 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 patrons by revealing their weaknesses and allowing all to share in their triumphs, but not without a laugh or two along the way.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. July 11, July 12, July 18 and July 19 and at 3 p.m. July 12, July 13, July 19 and July 20.
Tickets will be $17 for adults, $15 for seniors and students and $10 for children.
