Inspired by a real event, and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Bright Star, tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives.
Bright Star features a cast comprised of 30 students between the ages of thirteen and eighteen who reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Brookline, Hopkinton, Natick, Needham, Newton, Waban, Watertown, and West Roxbury.
