Only two shows of Gypsy remain, Sept. 4 & 5
Everything's coming up roses on the Mainstage with the backstage musical, Gypsy!
One of the greatest American musicals of all time, Gypsy stars Weslie Webster as Rose, a stage mother who puts today's "Dance Moms" to shame as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters into child stars.
DeAnna Etchison is Rose's daughter Louise, and Elizabeth Wyld is Louise's sister June.
Playhouse favorite Jason Ross is Rose’s love interest, Herbie.
Directed by Britt Hancock and choreographed by Leila Nelson, Gypsy promises to be an unforgettable, electrifying show!
Co-sponsored by Dirk C. Davidson, MD / Tennessee Oncology, and Fairfield Glade Resort.
It Ain't Nothin' But The Blues plays thru Oct. 25
Much more than just a musical revue, It Ain’t Nothin' But The Blues lets the audience discover the history of the Blues—from African roots and delta spirituals—and explores the regions of our country that provided the most fertile soil for this uniquely American art form to flourish.
The Playhouse production is set in a gallery filled with paintings of the Blues scene, and as the paintings come to life, so do the vibrant stories contained in these memorable songs.

Smoke on the Mountain extended through Oct. 4
Smoke on the Mountain, now in its twenty-first consecutive year at the Playhouse, continues to play to sold-out crowds and delight audiences again and again.
"The publisher, Samuel French, Inc.—the oldest and largest publisher for plays and musicals in the world—tells us it's the most popular show they license," says director Weslie Webster.
The setting for Smoke is the year is 1938. It's Saturday night in Mount Pleasant, NC, and the Reverend Oglethorpe has invited the Sanders Family Singers to provide an uplifting evening of song.
The audience becomes the congregation as two dozen traditional and original hymns weave together with stories of witness from family members, along with a healthy dose of laughter.
