Elon University Department of Performing Arts present Deep Water Ballad a new musical from Douglas Waterbury and Elon faculty member Chris Rayis. After a fatal mining disaster occurs in the small mountain town of Deep Water, West Virginia, the families left behind are forced to rebuild their community and confront the question of their own survival in the face of a new industry that threatens to destroy the land to extract what's buried beneath it. Yet, something mysterious is happening as water is erupting from solid rock, windows spontaneously shattering, and the land itself glowing with a peculiar light. Could there be some truth in that old incantation, "mountain men never die"?

Reservations will be offered beginning April 21, 2023.

Performance Times are April 28 @7:30pm, April 29 @ 2pm and 7:30pm, and April 30 @2pm.
