Mill Town Players present “Dark of the Moon”


The Mill Town Players will present their second production, “Dark of the Moon” over the Halloween weekend.

Imaginatively set in the Smoky Mountains, “Dark of the Moon” recounts the story of John, a strange “witch boy” who upon first beholding the beautiful Barbara Allen immediately falls in love. Staying true to the legend’s musical roots of being an Appalachian legend based on the haunting folk ballad of “Barbara Allen”, the Mill Town Players’ production features a live, local bluegrass band.

The show opens Halloween night and runs for one weekend only: Friday, Oct 31 at 8pm and 10pm; Saturday, Nov 1 at 8pm and 10pm; and Sunday, Nov 2 at 3pm. Tickets are $10 at or call 864-947-8000.

The production will be taken to the South Carolina Theatre Association Community Theatre Festival in Aiken in November.

Located in the historic Pelzer Auditorium, Mill Town Players is a community theater whose purpose is to entertain, inspire, and enrich our community by providing quality and affordable live theater.
