Smoke on the Mountain is a wildly funny, foot-stomping good time!

Artists Collaborative Theatre presents Smoke on the Mountain, now through September 28! Smoke on the Mountain is a wildly funny, foot-stomping good time!

“I feel like I have just participated in the best tent revival possible.”  Audience Member Anna Robinson said.

“The cast has the Spirit and so much love for each other, you can’t help but feel good!” Audience Member Randall Ramey.

Taking place during a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938, the show features two dozen rousing bluegrass songs played and sung by the Sanders Family, a traveling group making its return to performing after a five-year hiatus. Between songs, each family member “witnesses” — telling a story about an important event in their life.  Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of the congregation, one thing after another goes awry and they reveal their true — and hilariously imperfect – natures.

Show times for Smoke on the Mountain are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 3 pm.  Tickets are only $9 each. We welcome all groups, with special invitation to church groups. Group rate: only $8.00 per person for groups of 15 or more!

Hatfield McCoy Heritage Days is Coming, Aug. 29-31, 2014

America’s most infamous feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys involved stories of betrayal, violence, forbidden love, retribution and unforgiveness. Many believe that the bad blood that grew between these two families stemmed from the Civil War, a conflict that pitted brother against brother during one of America’s darkest eras.
Since the signing of the official peace treaty between Reo Hatfield and Ron and Bo McCoy, both families have tirelessly worked to undo the violence image brought forth by the feud, becoming advocates for peace, communication and reconciliation. Visitors are welcome to attend Hatfield McCoy Heritage Days, which is held each year on Labor Day Weekend in Pikeville, Pike County KY! Meet some of the descendants of the families, enjoy arts, crafts, multiple stages with live entertainment, drag-racing, BBQ and so much more!

Plan your trip as soon as possible, and celebrate peace with the Hatfields & McCoys!
