Featuring a cast of local youth from the Dan River Region, "Firebringer" will be presented this weekend at Smokestack Theatre Company in Danville’s River District. More than 50 volunteers have helped bring this show to the stage. At the dawn of humanity, one tribe of cave-people survives the many trials of prehistoric life under the wise leadership of Jemilla, The Peacemaker. Jemilla taught her people to express themselves, rather than bashing each others' heads with rocks and eating each others' babies. But one member of the tribe doesn't seem to fit in: Zazzalil. She's always trying to invent things to make life easier… for herself. While out hatching her latest scheme, Zazzalil stumbles upon the most important discovery in history. One that will pit her tribe against wooly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and change the world forever. She'll travel from omega to alpha, and become … the Firebringer. The show opened Thursday and continues at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 319 Lynn St. There's also a 2 p.m. Sunday performance. Tickets are available on Eventbrite for $20 for adults, $15 for children, and $12 for groups of 10-plus.
