The Backlot Players present - Smoke on the Mountain
(Musical) This show tells the story of a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938. Smoke on the Mountain features two dozen rousing bluegrass songs played and sung by the Sanders Family. Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of a congregation that wants to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry and they revel their true – and hilariously imperfect – natures. By the evening’s end, the Sanders Family have endeared themselves to us by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs.
January 29, 30, 31 + February 5,6 & 7, 2021

The Backlot Players Present - The Altos
“Like The Sopranos, Only Lower!” (Comedy/Murder Mystery) – Meet the family that inspired it all, the Altos. It’s Tony’s funeral (or is it?) and his wife, Toffee, has invited you to the wake. Chris wants you to check your weapons at the door (and if you don’t have any – he’s got extras!) Uncle Senior has a rigged dice game going and Tony’s Ma is – well, just nuts. Tony’s shrink, Dr. Malaise, is giving free analysis and the Father isn’t sure what he is doing! One thing is for sure, almost no one seems sad that Tony is gone, and they certainly don’t seem happy once he’s discovered alive. Be prepared to dodge bullets, laugh at the songs, and see if you can’t figure out who put a contract out on Tony!
