Description

Front Porch Theatre at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts proudly presents As It Is In Heaven by Arlene Hutton, the third production of its sixth season.

PLOT SUMMARY: The 1830's Shaker society of Pleasant Hill, Kentucky is set in ordered ways. The arrival of young Fanny, however, upsets the harmony; Fanny sees angels in the meadow, completely upending and upsetting the community. The leaders question Fanny's intentions and honesty, and Eldress Hannah is jealous that she, the most devout of Shakers, has not been privileged to see the visions. Is this a resurgence of the original Shaker celebration or something manufactured by Fanny?

Hymns sung a cappella punctuate the play, which ends with an explosion of Shaker singing and ecstatic dance.

Evening performances on Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and matinees on Sundays at 2:00 pm.

*All Sunday matinees will include a post-show talkback/Q&A with actors, artists involved with production, and/or director*

May 10 - 26, 2019 at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts!
