The Overlook Theatre Company in Franklin will present “The Civil War, an American Musical,” at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 23-25 and at 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 26 at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

“The Civil War” explores the experiences of the soldiers and leaders who fought in the war, and the loved ones and families they left behind. It also demonstrates the hopes and fears of the slaves and citizens who were at risk of losing their freedom. It’s a passionate look at the history of the Civil War, drawing on letters, diaries, firsthand accounts, and the words of Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Walt Whitman.

The Tony-award nominated musical is based on the book and lyrics written by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy, with the musical arrangement by Frank Wildhorn. Its styles include gospel, folk, country, rock, and rhythm and blues.

Tickets are $15, with discounted student tickets available for $10 each. Tickets are available at the theatre’s box office located at 1028 Georgia Road in Franklin.

The production is sponsored in part by Kurti Orthodontics.
