Hello Readers- Joining in with Norm 2.0 with Thursday Doors.
We were at the Swift Creek Mill Theatre (in March) to see “Bright Star,” the Tony Award-nominated musical from Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.
The story is based on a true event and it is “set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina” and depicts “a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s.”
The musical runs at Swift Creek until May 11th, 2019 (for those in the Richmond, Virginia area).
We thought the Swift Creek team did a wonderful job – acting, singing, and directing – all very good.
It is such a small venue and that enriches the experience (well when the quality is there it adds to it..)
Here is the doorway entrance to the basement. They had a silent auction laid out. Look at the old stone.
Few more photos – and another door – in this slideshow:
Oh and just FYI
There is the Bright Star Banjo App here! Available for free from the Apple App Store. Learn three-finger and clawhammer style banjo parts for the musical! You get tab (that plays along with you) and split-screen video to clearly demonstrate the banjo parts for “Bright Star.”
Have a nice day
