Starting off our 2020 season, we have CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES, a musical comedy about the women who work in the church kitchen, cooking meals for church events. The musical is inspired by the book Growing Up Lutheran by Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson. Characters range from an elderly matriarch to a young bride-to-be as they handle Christmas Dinner, a close-to-home funeral, a Hawaiian fundraiser, and hot July wedding. Our first thought about a church community may be that it is run by the male clergy, but this musical shows us that behind every strong church is a stronger group of women.
CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES runs March 5 through 15.
Next up, we have the smash box office hit, SISTER ACT. This musical adaptation of the beloved Whoopi Goldberg film is a story of redemption, love, acceptance, overcoming prejudice, and most importantly, the power of music. The story follows Deloris Van Cartier, an enigmatic nightclub performer as she goes on the run from her gangster boyfriend, gets put into the Witness Protection Program, and begins a new life… as a nun.
SISTER ACT runs June 11 through 28, and is sure to be a rock ‘n’ rolling fun time.
Following SISTER ACT, we have VIOLET. VIOLET is a musical written by Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley based on “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts. We open on Violet Karl, a woman from Spruce Pine, North Carolina, with a ticket, a suitcase, and a heart full of expectation. She is going to travel to Tulsa to see an evangelist preacher in the hopes that he will heal the scar on her face with the power of the Lord. Along the way, and on the bus, she meets a cast of characters that change her life - and her self perception - forever.
VIOLET runs July 9 through 26.
In the Fall, we have SISTERS OF SWING: THE STORY OF THE ANDREWS SISTERS! SISTERS OF SWING is a biographical musical about the lives of The Andrews Sisters, one of the best selling female vocal groups, even to this day. The book follows their early days on the road, all the way through their eventual dissolution due to artistic differences. Come see hits like “Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, performed by our very own Andrews Sisters sing-alikes!
SISTERS OF SWING runs October 8 through 18.
Our Christmas time show is A CHRISTMAS CAROL: A PLAY WITH MUSIC. A CHRISTMAS CAROL, adapted by Dwight Chiles, is a timeless story about the power of Christmas, the love we share, and not taking life for granted. We are mixing in modern music with this Charles Dickins classic to bring this story to new audiences. We’re even planning a Mars Hill University Theatre Arts cast of students to tour the production to local schools while our SART company performs in Owen Theatre.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL: A PLAY WITH MUSIC runs December 10 through 20.
