Charleston Light Opera Guild's production of Bright Star


Presented by Charleston Light Opera Guild, from Grammy award-winning Edie Brickell and Grammy, Emmy and Academy-award winning Steve Martin comes Bright Star, the five-time Tony nominated new musical play that the New York Times called “a shining achievement.” Directed by Nina Denton Pasinetti and inspired by a real event, this bluegrass musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich background of the American South in the 1920s and 40s. Editor Alice Murphy enters a literary relationship with a young soldier just home from World War II that awakens her longing for the child she once lost and sets her on a journey to understand her past. Propelled by a 20 person cast and onstage musical ensemble led by musical director/accompanist David Patrick, the story unfolds as a tapestry of deep emotions and beautiful melodies.

Tickets: $20, open seating. Available online at or at Books & Brews, 222 W Washington St. beginning June 12, 11 am - 2 pm, Wed. thru Fri; Box Office at Guild Theatre (304-342-9312) opens 1 hour before performances
