The WordPlayers presents Bright Star, the Broadway musical with story and bluegrass-style tunes by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.

Inspired by a real event, Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and forgiveness set in the mountains of western North Carolina in the 1920’s and ‘40’s. The story follows literary editor Alice Murphy and her relationship with a young soldier, just home from World War II. Bright Star's redemptive experience will uplift all who witness it.

(Suggested for ages 13+)
