As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved, she’s travelling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical “imperfections.” 


Reservations are highly recommended and will be offered beginning at 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 16 online or at Roberts Studio Reservation Line at (336) 278-5650.
