WASHBOARD BLUES — June Sanders Oglethorpe (Allison Stephens Butner) holds up her end of the musical bargain on the washboard as her family gathers at Mount Pleasant Church for a farewell service. The very-expectant Mrs. Oglethorpe and her husband, Mount Pleasant’s pastor, Bro. Mervin Oglethorpe (Michael Poore), are bound for a new ministry in a “cowboy” church in Texas. Their story and that of their loved ones in the little mountain church is told in music and humor at Masquerade Theatre’s latest production, “Smoke on the Mountain Homecoming.” The show will continue Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 and again Oct. 19-21 at the Capitol Theatre in downtown Union City. Tickets are on sale for $15 at Lanzer’s.
