Kings Mountain Little Theater

"Liberty Mountain"

From the pen of playwright and novelist Robert Inman comes the compelling historical drama Liberty Mountain -- the story of the hardy, resourceful people who settled the Carolinas and their crucial role in the winning of American Independence.  Over 40 professional actors, technicians, and designers bring this epic drama to life.  Be immersed in the excitement of the drama…hear the music, smell the gunpowder, and find yourself surrounded in the action as actors blaze past you in the aisles of the auditorium. The gigantic production features larger-than-life battles, cutting edge special effects and handcrafted costume pieces. Experience the tragedy and heartbreak, the danger and excitement. There is music, laughter, blood, redemption, romance and liberty. Join us for an experience you will never forget.
