Going to see “Smoke on the Mountain” is well worth the trip to Dover

 

Smoke on the MountainThe Dover Community Theatre is currently presenting Smoke on the Mountain in the old High School building, or Annex, as it is called today (110 Natcor Drive) in Dover, TN. Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at the door. There are two shows remaining one on Saturday night at 7:00pm, and Sunday at 2:00pm. So get on out to Dover and see this unforgettable show before it is too late!

Smoke on the mountain takes place in 1938 at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina. The play presents a Saturday night Gospel sing, featuring the Sanders Family in their first night back on the gospel circuit in five years. When you boil it down this show is about having hope and faith, and of course fellowship. Things to which I think we can all relate.
