Inspired by a true story, the contemporary musical Bright Star tells an unforgettable tale of love, loss, and redemption set in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, she spots something special about him, mentoring Billy as he searches for his identity as a Southern writer. Their relationship awakens her memories of the rural life she left behind in the 1920’s, and the child she once lost. Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past, while Billy sets out to forge his future —and what she discovers has the power to transform both of their lives. The Tony-nominated bluegrass score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell features beautiful melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and a hopeful message for troubled times. If you know the story, you’ll have a good story to tell!

New Kinds of Performances
Some of the methods of delivery for our performances might be new to you. Here are some terms it will be helpful to know.
Upper School Play
By Molière, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur
Alceste hates polite society, but the woman he loves is the queen bee of the popular crowd. Célimène says she loves him back, but that’s what she tells everybody! This improbable romance is set against the backdrop of gossip and power plays in 17th Century France, where words are brandished like weapons and status is defined by style. One of the best-known comedies of the world stage, Molière’s classic asks a perennial question: Is it better to be bluntly honest or falsely kind? And can love find a way in between?
ALL IN THE TIMING
By David Ives
Winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award. This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. “Like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue. The writing is not only very funny, it has density of thought and precision of poetry…ALL IN THE TIMING is by a master of fun. David Ives spins hilarity out of words.” —NY Times.
KinkADE Underground is an opportunity for our advanced acting students to create an Actor Driven Event (no sets, no lights, no costumes) while working on more thought-provoking literature that challenges both actor and audience to critically think about issues.
