Theatre Raleigh to Stage Reading of Foster & Stitt's New Musical BLUE RIDGE SKY

Theatre Raleigh to Stage Reading of Foster & Stitt's New Musical BLUE RIDGE SKY

Theatre Raleigh continues its fall series with a New Work Staged Reading of BLUE RIDGE SKY, featuring book by Hunter Foster and music & lyrics by Georgia Stitt, on October 17th & 18th at 8 p.m. at the Kennedy Theatre (2 E. South Street, Raleigh, NC 27601).

Take a sneak peek behind the curtain of this new musical in development from Georgia Stitt and Hunter Foster!

BLUE RIDGE SKY is a contemporary musical that challenges one family to explain the unexplainable in the face of a father's incredible faith.

David Hume, a celebrated professor at Duke University, gathers his two sons, his daughter and their families at their vacation home in The Great Blue Ridge Mountains on the anniversary of their mother's death. He announces that he has done careful scientific research leading him to the conclusion that the world will end the next morning at sunrise, and they must all hike up to Angel's Peak, a flat rock that juts out from a mountaintop, to await Judgment Day. An old Indian legend claims that if you lose something off the mountaintop of Angel's Peak, the Gods will send the winds to return it to you. David Hume claims that it will be here, tomorrow, on Earth's last day, that his wife, Abigail, will return to them. Which of his children support him? What do people do when they believe it could be their last twenty-four hours on Earth? Which do we value more: being a family or being right?
