Brevard College Theatre's production of "Brother Wolf' will be performed Feb. 22-25 at the Porter Center.

On Thursday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m., Brevard College Theatre will open their production of "Brother Wolf," a musical drama adapted by Preston Lane with original music by Lauren Dossett.

The show will run in The Porter Center for Performing Arts' Black Box Theatre.

Additional performances will be on Feb. 23 and 24 at 7 p.m., as well as a matinee on Feb. 25 at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students, and are available for purchase online at etix.com or at the box office 30 minutes before each performance.

Based on the story of Beowulf, and in the tradition of the award winning film "O' Brother Where Art Thou?," the play is set in the 1840s and present day.

The Appalachian adventure combines epic storytelling with traditional music, blending folklore, myth and mountain religion.

When the Speerdane family dares to build a church, they awaken the violent monster, Grin Dell.

The legendary mountain man, Brother Wolf, arrives to lend a hand and sparks a cycle of revenge that hurtles out of control and can only be stopped by learning to forgive.

Audience members will recognize many of the actual place names mentioned, and the set and lighting design will help ground the story right here in Western North Carolina.

And while the play may feel dark at times, there is a great deal of hope in this story. Brother Wolf is not a musical in the Broadway sense with large song and dance numbers, but more a "play with music."
