The Department of Music, Performing Arts and Music Technology at County College of Morris presents the Fall musical, “Bright Star,” inspired by a true story of the “Iron Mountain Baby,” that features the Tony-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.

Directed by Professor Marielaine Mammon, the show runs at the Dragonetti Auditorium from Wednesday, October 30, through Saturday, November 2, 7: 30 p.m., with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. General admission seating is $15, while tickets for CCM students, alumni, children under 12 and seniors 62 and over are $10.  Tickets can be purchased here.

“Bright Star” tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina in the 1920s and ’40s.  The story is a delightful and uplifting tale of a young woman’s triumph over heartache and secrets.

CCM is located at 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph, NJ. Patrons are asked to park in Lot 6.
