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.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
