Mamma Mia!

Directed by Gabriel Vanover

Mamma Mia! is Judy Craymer’s ingenious melding of iconic Swedish pop group, ABBA, with the enchanting tale of family and friendship on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they had last visited 20 years ago. Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus's songs including "Dancing Queen," "The Winner Takes It All," "Money, Money, Money," and "Take a Chance on Me" are all featured in this feel-good night of fun and laughter.

Mamma Mia is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com.

From The Mountaintop: The Edgar Tufts Story

Directed by Dr. Janet Barton Speer

What did Banner Elk, North Carolina, look like in the 1890s? With the vision of a young seminary student, one tiny town gained a church, a college, an orphanage, and a hospital.” 

The story of Edgar Tufts is compelling and heartwarming. Set to music by John Thomas Oaks and Tommy Oaks, and written by Janet Barton Speer (the team who brought you The Denim King: The Moses Cone Story), this work is presented after thoughtful research among the families who have lived here for generations. Using traditional mountain music mixed with a lyrical style, audiences will be moved and inspired by this great man. You will not want to miss From the Mountaintop: The Edgar Tufts Story.

Written by Janet Barton Speer  |  Music and Lyrics by John Thomas Oaks and Tommy Oaks

Ticket Price: $10

A Whale of a Tale is the ingenious telling of the biblical story of Jonah. Composers and writers John Thomas Oaks and Tommy Oaks have taken their two-man show to venues across the country. The show captures children's imagination as two actors play all the parts and move with hilarity from a pirate's saloon to the ocean, to the belly of a fish and back.
