Back by popular demand! What did Banner Elk, North Carolina, look like in the 1890s? With the vision of Edgar Tufts, a young seminary student, one tiny town gained a church, college, orphanage, and hospital. This original musical by the team who brought you "The Denim King: The Moses Cone Story," "America's Artist: The Norman Rockwell Story," and "The [W]right Sister" is presented after thoughtful research among the families who have lived here for generations. Using traditional mountain music mixed with a lyrical style, audiences will be moved and inspired by this great man. You will not want to miss "From the Mountaintop: The Edgar Tufts Story."
