It's a Wonderful Life:

A Live Radio Play

December 10-19

Fridays/Saturdays @ 7pm

Sundays @ 2pm

Tickets $20

It's the holiday classic like you've never seen before: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast! Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are done through Foley artists. It’s a Wonderful Life is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.

Denton the Dragon the Musical!

January 7-15

Fridays/Saturdays @ 7pm

Jan 9 & 14 @ 2pm

Tickets • $15 Adults / $8 Children

“Denton the Dragon the Musical!” was born in Black Mountain! This world premiere is based on children’s stories by BMT resident Jeff Hutchins. Denton is a three-year-old dragon (that’s six in dragon years) who has just come to live in the city after growing up in a cave in the mountains. As a naive dragon, he must learn the culture of the people he encounters, mostly in the form of seven-year-old children, and one talking amphibian. The show will feature 14 super-catchy original songs. Although the themes and music are kid-friendly, the show is aimed at people aged 4 to 104. You don’t need to bring a child with you to love this show… but don’t be afraid to bring one.
