In the 50's at the dawn of the Cold War, the U.S. Army moves notorious Nazi rocket scientist Wernher Von Braun to Huntsville, Alabama, a cotton town selected to become America's "Rocket City." But Huntsville has a large Jewish community, and emotions ignite when the Jewish fiancee of a local war hero learns of Von Braun's Nazi past. With senstivity and humor. Rocket City, Alabam' presents the moral dilemmas of idealism vs. practicality, of revenge vs. forgiveness.

Rocket City, Alabam' is a play with songs that captures a true-life episode in the history of the American South, presenting a story of secrets, colorful Southern characters, and several famous songs of the region -- blues, spirituals and gospel including "Down By the Riverside," "Alabama Bound," "This Little Light of Mine" and many more.
