LampLight Theatre will host a brand-new patriotic tribute this year. “Stars and Stripes” will resonate the message of freedom with music classics, dance, and comedy. This is the 19th Annual Americana show that LampLight has produced. These patriotic extravaganzas have become a favorite for patrons and performers alike.

“The greatest joy in performing in our patriotic show is the unity we share in our freedom, liberty, and faith,” says producer/director Billy Wayne. “Stars and Stripes is a salute to those who have served or are currently serving our country. Their firm stand and sacrifice have provided for our freedoms.”

“Stars and Stripes” will pay tribute to not only America, but to someone that makes Tennessee extra unique, Dolly Parton. The show will feature Dolly favorites such as “Welcome Home,” “Color Me America” and of course, “9 to 5.”
