Smoke on the Mountain opens May 30, plays through Aug. 8
Heaven is eternal, but twenty-one years of Smoke on the Mountain are heavenly for the Cumberland County Playhouse, "Tennessee's Family Theater" - home to the state's largest theater audience of over 135,000 annual visits.
"The publisher, Samuel French, Inc., the oldest and largest publisher for plays and musicals in the world, tells us it's the most popular show they license," says 2013 co-director Daniel Black, who started his Playhouse (and Smoke) career as a volunteer while still at Cumberland County High School in Crossville, in 1995. French also verifies that the Playhouse has done more performances than any other theater, anywhere.
Smoke on the Mountain is a crowd-pleasing, grassroots musical that tells the story of the Sanders Family Singers with a healthy dose of humor, bluegrass and gospel music. Playhouse fans have enjoyed the performances by Patty Payne, Jason Ross, Lauren Marshall, Daniel Black, Austin Price and John Dobbratz.
Smoke on the Mountain is rated G.
