Dark of the Moon Enchants Audiences

The BW Theatre and Dance Department has done it again. Directed by Scott Plate, Dark of the Moon, a story of love and the supernatural and set in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee both bewitched and haunted audiences.

Dark of the Moon is a chilling tale told with swing and spirit about John, a strange "witch boy," and a beautiful young woman named Barbra Allen. The folksy romance is brought to life as John is granted human form in order to woo and marry Barbra. Things take a turn for the worse when Barbra is lead to betray John, breaking the spell of their love and causing him to return to the world of the mountain witches forever.

The show ran from April 9-19 in the William Allman Theatre. Upcoming theatre events for the rest of the spring semester include the 10-Minute Play Festival on April 29 & 30, Dance Works in Progress on May 1 and Henry IV Part Two on May 29 & 30. All of these events are free and open to the public.
