Theatrical retrospective of Lake Junaluska to debut Aug. 3

Written by 

The Light of the Lake, a theatrical production evoking 100 years of Lake Junaluska history, will have its premier performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 3, in Stuart Auditorium.

Described as a multimedia experience, the production will incorporate photography, acting, and a heavy musical influence with performances by the Lake Junaluska Singers and a small orchestra.

Jerry Sipp, the playwright commissioned to write the production, said he was tasked with creating “an honest portrayal of the struggles and triumphs of Lake Junaluska that have led up to all the good things at Lake Junaluska today.”

The production will incorporate visual projections from the past and present to illustrate the story as well.

“Not only will the audience get to use their imaginations as the actors are performing, but they will see the main events we are chronicling through photography,” Sipp said.

Sipp spent hours researching in the SEJ Heritage Center and interviewing residents of Lake Junaluska.

“The personal anecdotes and stories of the people of Lake Junaluska were so interesting,” said Sipp, calling that one of the most rewarding aspects of the project.

She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
