“Bright Star” – a Carolina musical

JULY 17–28. Wed–Sat at 7:30pm; Sun at 2:00pm.


Featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the state of North Carolina in the 1920s and ’40s. Inspired by a real event, set in many familiar locations across North Carolina, and propelled by an ensemble of onstage bluegrass musicians, Bright Star tells a love story as comforting and generation-spanning as biscuits & gravy. No matter the bad things that happen, “the sun is gonna shine again!”

Bright Star is the culmination of PlayMakers’ Summer Youth Conservatory, a six-week practicum for high school students—both on stage and behind the scenes—combining top-notch teaching with unparalleled practical experience. Students work with professional directors, choreographers, musical directors, and theatre technicians to mount a professional quality production for all to enjoy.

“Magical. Romantic. Pure. I loved it. You’ll love it!”
