The Uwharrie Players’ Bright Star Auditions
May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Music Directed by Joseph Judge
Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s BRIGHT STAR tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. Set in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, this Bluegrass-tinged musical is rooted in Appalachian folk tales and songs.1940’s Literary Editor Alice Murphy meets Billy Cane, a young soldier just home from serving in World War II. As Billy pursues his life-long dream of being an author, Alice is transported back to the 1920’s & the dreams of her youth, each following their own BRIGHT STAR. As the story of Alice and Billy’s lives simultaneously unfold with beautiful melodies and moving characters, the rich saga & deep emotions of their theatrical journey serve as a sincere reminder – no matter how dark the world gets, the sun will shine again.
An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tightly in its grasp, BRIGHT STAR is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
