A Christmas Carol Performance Square Graphic (2)Star Bright Players Performances – A Christmas Carol the Musical (Broadway Version) 
December 1-9, 2023
Williamson County Performing Arts Center

The Star Bright Players will present A Christmas Carol, the spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens’ most well-known story, adapted by Broadway heavy hitters Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens this holiday season. This will be a wonderful production for the whole family!

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him. 

Blandina Vergara-Cruz is the director.

Lightning Thief Performances (Square) (2) - CopyStars to the East Performances – The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical
January 20-21, 2024
Williamson County Performing Arts Center

WCPR’s newest theatre group, Stars to the East, will present their inaugural production, The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical in January! These middle and high-school aged actors have been rehearsing in College Grove and will perform at the Williamson County Performing Arts Center in Franklin. 

With book by Joe Tracz and Music and Lyrics by Rob Rokicki, this dynamic musical adaptation of Rick Riordan’s bestselling book opened on Broadway in 2019 features a thrilling original rock score and per Time Out New York is an action-packed mythical adventure "worthy of the gods". As the half-blood son of a Greek god, Percy Jackson has newly-discovered powers he can't control, a destiny he doesn't want, and a mythology textbook's worth of monsters on his trail. When Zeus's master lightning bolt is stolen and Percy becomes the prime suspect, he has to find and return the bolt to prove his innocence and prevent a war between the gods. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the thief. He must travel to the Underworld and back; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and come to terms with the father who abandoned him. 

Blandina Vergara-Cruz is the director.
