Bright Star a Bright Spot

Live theatre returned to Cullman High School this season with the amazing story of Bright Star, a COVID-friendly production of the Steve Martin and Edie Brickell Broadway hit.

Bright Star is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and travels between 1945 and 1923. Billy Cane, a young soldier just home from World War II, meets Alice Murphy, the brilliant editor of a southern literary journal. Together they discover a powerful secret that alters their lives.”

The story is based on true events, and the school’s Theatre Department web page calls it “a story of redemption, love and second chances.”

The CHS students involved in every aspect of the production did an amazing job.  The production was a huge success.  Congratulations to every one involved.
