A perennial favorite Dark of the Moon is based on the haunting folk ballad of "Barbara Allen." Employing a large cast and imaginative settings in the Smoky Mountains, Dark of the Moon recounts the story of John, a strange "witch boy" who upon first beholding the beautiful Barbara Allen immediately falls in love. He is given human form to woo and marry her on the condition that she remain true to him. Dark of the Moon was produced on Broadway in 1945.

Directed by Robin Frome

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Jean Buoy who sadly passed away recently. She was a long time board member and a steadfast supporter of the Playhouse. May she rest in peace. ... See moreSee less
