It’s the 1930s, and the fictitious Sanders Family Singers is holding a “singin’” of traditional and bluegrass gospel music on a Saturday night in North Carolina. And you are a member of the congregation, eager to hear the music, witness the witnessing, share in the lives of the realistic (and non-preachy) characters, and be uplifted by a big helping of laughter.
As the dozen-plus cast members tell their stories, they segue naturally into great old hymns, some well known, others obscure. You’re sure to recognize sacred standards such as “Rock of Ages,” “I’ll Fly Away” and “Church in the Wildwood”—but even the unfamiliar tunes will bring on a sense of nostalgia for the little ol’ one-room community church that everyone in town attended.
Smoke on the Mountain will play Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1 at 7:30 and Sunday, October 2 at 2:30—and again the weekend of October 7–9 at the same times. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for students; group rates are available. Call to reserve at 251-968-6721. South Baldwin Community Theatre is located at 2022 W. Second St. in Gulf Shores, across from the Erie Meyer Civic Center and Bodenhamer Recreation Center.
