Theatre on the Ridge presents "Bright Star"
On the Eve of the Camp Fire Anniversary, this beautiful show seems the perfect fit to commemorate and remember all we have endured and survived, and celebrate our resilience as we continue on the journey forward with our hopes and dreams for the future of Paradise and “all its name implies.” By way of comparison to our current struggles, Bright Star tells a story of lives torn apart and made whole again, a perfect balance of wide-eyed optimism, folksy humor, love, heartbreaking loss, and the strength and resilience to overcome it.
Inspired by a real event, this original musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
