The Sanders Family, a traveling bluegrass group making its return to performing after a five-year hiatus, has been enlisted by the young and enthusiastic Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church to help bring his tiny congregation into "the modern world" with a Saturday Night Gospel Sing. Between songs, each family member tells a story about an important event in their life, in an attempt to inspire the wary churchgoers. However, as one thing after another goes awry, they reveal their true – and hilariously imperfect – natures.

Directed by Maggie Gallagher

"Smoke on the Mountain" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
