The Burnt Part Boys takes place in West Virginia and is set in a small coal mining community. The story concerns the five teenagers, four of whom lost their fathers in a mining accident ten years earlier. The five climb the mountainside to the mine where their fathers and eight other miners died.
The show is a mix of comedy and drama, set to a lively and tuneful Bluegrass score giving the show a distinctive Appalachian flavor.
Rehearsals are scheduled to begin the week of April 10th, with performances tentatively scheduled for June 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th at 7PM and June 11th and 18th at 2PM.
