Set April 3, 1968, The Mountaintop is a gripping reimagining of the night before the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. After delivering one of his most memorable speeches, an exhausted Dr. King retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis while a storm rages outside. When Camae, a maid, delivers room service, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people. 

Max Antoine and Myeisha Essex comprise the cast. Bryan Moore is director with Crystal M. Dunning as stage manager, scenic design by Douglas Cooper, lighting design by Erica Lauren Maholmes, sound design by RMV Studios, props by Marie Barrett, costume coordination by Meg McCrina, and technical direction by Lauren Spilinek.

The show features adult themes and language. There is a brief strobe lighting effect, water-based haze, and real down feathers used.

Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Broadway musical that inspired a generation. Based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew, this hit musical with book by John Michael Tebelak and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, will be a joyful theatrical celebration.

A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, are employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Season Sponsors Russ’s Market, 10/11 Cares, Lincoln Journal Star and KFOR.
