Inspired by true events and featuring the Grammy-nominated score, BRIGHT STAR tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ‘40s Blue Ridge Mountains.
When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past - and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. The story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerful storytelling.
BRIGHT STAR is directed by Robert Wamsley, with music direction by Kristen Works and choreography by Jenna Richter-Nasif and will feature a large ensemble cast.
