Stories from a Goodly Portion of Beautiful Northeast Georgia

Stories collected from seven counties in the northeast Georgia mountains make up the plot, action and excitement of Headwaters. Co-written by nationally recognized folk play author Jo Carson and Sautee Nacoochee native Jerry Grillo, Headwaters employs the talents of 30 volunteers from around the area. The stories focus on the lives and trials of people in northeast Georgia. Stories ranging from those telling of local communities coming together in times of need to picnics interrupted by bears highlight life in the mountains. Under the guidance of director Lisa Mount, Headwaters sings, dances and laughs its way into State of the Arts.
