Wellesley Theatre Project (WTP) presents Bright Star, a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against a backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s, on Aug. 15 and 16 at 7pm and Aug. 17 at 2pm. All performances will take place at the The Katherine L. Babson Auditorium at Wellesley High School, located at 50 Rice St, Wellesley.

Inspired by a real event, and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star tells the story of literary editor Alice Murphy, who meets a young soldier just home from World War II who awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.
Bright Star features a cast of 30 students between the ages of 13 and 18.
