Bright Star

Bright Star

It is with a heavy heart that we are forced to announce that SLOC will remain closed through the end of our 93rd season and, as such, Bright Star will not be performed as scheduled.  The Board of Directors is closely monitoring guidelines from the CDC as well as state and federal mandates on public gathering and will make a future announcement about when we will be able to reopen our doors.  If you have a ticket to Bright Star, please hold on to it.  When we’re able to make a concrete decision on the future of our productions, we will communicate with ticket holders about their options. It is our expectation that we will be able to present our 94th season starting in September as scheduled. Your patience and continued support is greatly appreciated. Please stay tuned for further updates.
Regional Premiere!

Inspired by a true story.

Bright Star is an uplifting theatrical journey taking places in the American South in the 1920s and 40s. Featuring a Grammy-nominated bluegrass score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells a powerful tale of love, redemption, and human connection.

Bright Star is presented by special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW).
