About the show:
Relax and step back into North Carolina in 1938. Join the Sanders family as they venture to Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church at the request of Pastor Oglethorpe, who wishes to bring his tiny congregation into the “modern world.” Though the Sanders family tries to appear perfect in the eyes of the church, things don’t go as planned and they reveal their hilariously imperfect natures. Loaded with gospel favorites like “I’ll Fly Away” and “Rock of Ages” join KLT as we enjoy a change of pace in the musical Smoke on the Mountain.
