Only two more opportunities to experience The Overlook Theatre Company’s presentation of “Smoke on the Mountain: A Rip-Roaring Musical Comedy Revival” at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. for the remaining shows on Oct. 19, and 23. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.
Smoke on the Mountain is full of laughs and toe-tapping bluegrass and traditional gospel music. It’s set in the 1930s in Mount Pleasant, N.C., and revolves around the Sanders family of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church who sing in celebration of their new electric light bulb.
This two-act theatrical presentation consists of almost 30 gospel tunes including, “I’ll Fly Away” and “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder.” It follows the Sanders family’s history on the gospel circuit and their quirky, flawed, and uniquely entertaining ways. Show-goers become members of the congregation who laugh at the Sanders family’s crazy antics and witness a heart-warming conclusion reminding them what it means to be a family and that anything is possible with a little bit of faith and a whole lot of heart.
