A preview performance is open to the public on April 12.  Jack Allison directs; original music is by Michael McKelvey. 

In the mysticAl Hills and hollow of the backwoods, a witch boy, John, falls in love with the beautiful mortal, Barbara. He longs to be human and spend his life with her, so he makes a pact that will threaten their love and their very lives. Their extremely different worlds - the supernatural existence known by Jack and the god-fearing mountain folk who surround Barbara - clash in a dramatic, powerful way, making Dark of the Moon one of the most haunting, tragic tales ever to grace The Playhouse stage, press notes state.
