Strand Theatre

Smoke On The Mountain

The Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre is presenting its September production of Smoke on the Mountain, the rollicking, exhilarating, and charmingly funny bluegrass gospel musical. Smoke on the Mountain plays one weekend only September 6-8, 2019. Tickets are $20-$50 and are on sale now to the general public.

Set in North Carolina in 1938, Smoke on the Mountain follows the Sanders Family Singers’ comedy of errors as they perform at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church’s Saturday Night Gospel Sing and reveal their true – and hilariously imperfect – natures. Audiences will laugh, sing, and fall in love with the charming Sanders family in the show the New York Post called, “Totally beguiling… foot-stomping soul food.”

The Strand’s 2019 theatrical season is supported in part through sponsorship by E. Smith Heating and Air, SA White Oil Company, Stephen W. Imler on behalf of the Humane Society of Cobb County, and LGE Community Credit Union.

She invites all three to the wedding without telling her mother, Donna (Meryl Streep). Watch the drama ensue in this feel-good experience that will have you singing and dancing in the aisles.
