The cast of Red Curtain Theatre’s bluegrass, gospel musical, “Smoke on the Mountain,” is finishing up their tour across central Arkansas at 5 p.m. Sunday at Antioch Baptist Church in Conway.
The event, with a potluck meal and dessert auction following, will benefit the church’s summer mission trips.
The group has traveled and performed at multiple local churches and community centers around the area.
“Featuring two dozen rousing bluegrass songs, this musical tells the tale of an enthusiastic preacher who has enlisted the singin’ and guitar pickin’ Sanders Family for the church’s first ever Gospel sing along,” a news release reads. “The talented Sanders family not only performs their songs but also reveals their true, imperfect nature. By the evening's end, the Sanders Family has endeared themselves to us by revealing their often hilarious weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs.”
The show is directed by Cindy Nations, with music direction by Liz Parker.
“We are so excited to be taking this show on the road,” RCT Executive Director, Kristen Sherman, said in the release. “Being able to share the arts across Central Arkansas is an important mission for us and we love that each performance will be benefiting a different ministry, civic group, or educational program. “Smoke on the Mountain,” is a rip-roaring fun show with an exceptional cast and is a perfect event for the entire family.”
