Community Members Invited to Submit Video Submissions for SC Production of ‘Bright Star’

The Southwestern College division of performing arts and Campus Players will present “Bright Star” Sept. 10-13, in the Richardson Performing Arts Center.   Community members that are interested in performing are asked to submit a video submission.  Videos will be accepted through Friday, May 1.
According to director Joshua Robinson, video submissions should feature a single, complete song in a Country/Bluegrass style. Callbacks will also be held via video submission. Those cast in the production will be expected to work on materials on their own over the summer so that they can be prepared for the first rehearsal on Aug. 17. Rehearsals will run through Sept. 9.
“Bright Star” is a musical written and composed by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell. It is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina in 1945-46 with flashbacks to 1923. The musical is inspired by their Grammy-winning collaboration on the 2013 bluegrass album “Love Has Come for You” and, in turn, the folk story of the Iron Mountain Baby.
“We are very excited about this production,” Robinson says.  “Richardson Performing Arts Center will be transformed into an environmental space; audiences will feel like they have been transported to an old-fashioned ‘barn raising’ complete with food, dancing, and Bluegrass music. We’re hoping to make this a real community event.”
