The show will premiere July 11 with additional performances July 12, 13, and 16 at 7 p.m. and afternoon shows July 14, 16, and 17 at 2 p.m.   What did Banner Elk, North Carolina, look like in the 1890s? With the vision of a young seminary student, one tiny town gained a church, a college, an orphanage, and a hospital. The musical, written by Janet Barton Speer, with songs and lyrics by John Thomas Oaks and Tommy Oaks, tells the story of Presbyterian minister, the Rev. Edgar Tufts.   Tufts first came to the region as a seminary student to organize a church, but his love and admiration for the mountain people called him back to an extraordinary life of service that forever changed the complexion of the area. With remarkable purpose, Tufts founded a number of institutions that continue to serve today: the Banner Elk Presbyterian Church, Lees-McRae College, Cannon Memorial Hospital, and Grandfather Home for Children.   In addition to the show this summer, the Town of Banner Elk and the institutions he founded will celebrate his life in a variety of ways.

In Spanish with English subtitles Perfect Strangers is a worldwide cinematic and cultural phenomenon that explores the role of technology and its impact on personal relationships. All in all, the script for Perfect Strangers has been remade nine times since the original 2016 Italian film including versions from Greece, Spain, Turkey, Israel, and now Mexico. Tapping into our cell phone-obsessed zeitgeist, seven long-time friends meet for an intimate dinner party during a lunar eclipse. When the hostess suggests a party game in which the attendees place their cellphones in the center of the dining room table and agree to make all calls and texts public, secrets and lies abound, forcing the participants to question how much they really know about each other. “. . . a wild and entertaining ride into the darker side of technology and the ominous ways in which we are letting our cell phones not only control us, but to also define us.” -Reel reviews “Perfect Strangers is a deliciously dark comedy from Mexico. . . Caro approaches the material almost like a thriller . . .The camera seems to be in constant motion; a smart move that prevents the action from feeling stage-bound. The Rodrigo Dávila score pulsates, adding tension and a mysterious sense of urgency to the proceedings.” -USA Today Directed by Manolo Caro Starring: Cecilia Suarez, Bruno Bichir, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Mariana Trevino Mexico; Rated R; Directed by Manolo Caro (2018); 97 minutes
