The award-winning Quitman Community Theatre will present the second part of the Smoke on the Mountain musical trilogy, The Sanders Family Christmas. Performance dates are October 29, 30, 31 and November 5,6,7 at the Carroll Green Civic Center in Quitman.
Curtain times are 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2pm on Sundays. Set on December 24, 1941, seventeen days after Pearl Harbor and FDR's declaration of war, the play takes place in the Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
This will be the last "Saturday Night Sing" for the Sanders Family prior to the war forcing the group to disband. There are 28 standard Christmas carols and gospel songs that will be presented through the course of the play. Piano, guitar, string bass, autoharp, banjo, and other instruments will be used for all of the songs, along with the actors' wonderful singing harmony.
The first presentation of the Smoke on the Mountain trilogy two years ago was the highest-attended play in QCT's history, and it is expected that this Part 2 will break that record.
The cast members are Keith Haisten, Donna Henderson, Blake Durham, Hannah Graham, Tara Moore, Michael Phifer, Bob Hibbard, Ulna McWhorter, Ann Norris, Jeff Norris, Gordon Schulz, Ann Rutherford, Dalton Kratzmeyer, Kay McEntire, Elaine Quillman, Betty Stribley, and Charlotte Hollis.
The ladies of First Baptist Church, Quitman, will host an Opening Night Gala beginning at 6:45pm on Friday, October 29.
This production of The Sanders Family Christmas has been underwritten by Wood County National Bank.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for 12 and under.
