Smoke on the Mountain

By Alan Bailey, Mike Craver, Mark Hardwick, and Connie Ray

August 3 to 18, 2019

At a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains, the young minister has enlisted the Sanders Family to perform in front of the congregation. Between songs, each family member tells a story about an important event in their life. They may seem a perfect and inspiring family, but each Sander provides enough humanity by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs. Heartfelt gospel songs and down-to-earth characters propel Smoke on the Mountain to a joyous celebration of life.
