Levi Green has just found out that his father's church is to be torn down. Now, after 13 years away from his hometown and his Bible-wielding pastor father, Levi's headed back home. Confronting his father about his unpermissive parenting and the many secrets left untold about Levi's mother, this trip home is rife with the strain of some much-needed conscience cleansing. Will Levi and his father be able to come to terms with who they are to each other, or will the tension of this showdown forever tear them apart? Paris Crayton III's drama stars Taurean Blacque, an Emmy nominee for his work on Hill Street Blues. Learn More

I have seen the show many times but this cast was the greatest. Loved the twins. They were individually and as twins so believable. And Dennis' talent as an actor and a musician are outstanding. And, no, I'm not a relative or friend; I've never seen or heard of either of them. They are certainly keepers!
It’s back! _ Smoke on the Mountain_, the original runaway hit that spawned two sequels, Sanders Family Christmas and Mount Pleasant Homecoming, returns to the Marietta Square this summer!
If you’ve seen the other two, here’s an opportunity to see the first or to revisit the quirky family in their original gospel concert at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The popular Smoke on the Mountain features a rural, gospel-singing Baptist family in 1930s North Carolina — loving father Burl, Bible-quoting mother Vera, twin brother Dennis and his star-struck twin sister Denise, the black sheep Uncle Stanley, the non-singing June, and Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe, head of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. The score includes popular hymns including “I’ll Fly Away,” “Power in the Blood,” “Bringing in the Sheaves,” and “I Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now.”
The first in the ever-popular series featuring the singing Sanders Family, Smoke on the Mountain premiered at Marietta’s beloved, now-shuttered Theatre in the Square in 1991. This perennial revival favorite features bluegrass songs from the gospel hit parade, sprinkled with the hapless pranks of this lovable and talented family. Reprising their roles in Smoke on the Mountain are Alan Kilpatrick as Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe, Karen Howell as Vera, Jennifer Akin as June, John Peterson as Burl, and
Scott DePoy as Uncle Stanley.
