The gospel stage play inspired by Carmela Vargus’ Guess What I Heard? premieres December 10 at the West Creek High School, 1210 W. Creek Coyote Trail, Clarksville, Tenn. 37042. Show times are at 2 pm and 7 pm.
This gospel comedy show, just in time for Christmas, will spread a message to stir your faith. Characters Mother Cranberry and Sister Haddie Mae are hilarious and heartwarming. This is a story about violence, bullying, greed, and cheating that occurs every day in our world. Mother Cranberry and Sister Haddie Mae will bring it all out and will make you laugh and cry.
Mother Cranberry is a character that has been splitting the sides of audiences for years. Rumor has it that this will be her last performance. She is moving on to even more fertile ‘talent ground’ in 2017.
The array of vested talent is resounding and each brings their own creative flow, whether its comedy, music, acting or all three combined.
Some of which include big industry names such as: Iva Foster Pace; LaWanda Allen; NEB (Not Easily Broken); T.C. Cope; Kevin Kennedy, attorney; Nicole Fletcher; Jonathan Carter; Robyn Gordon; Lady Treva Gordon; Malcolm Luster; Mary Franklin; and Detzin Pryor.
A portion of the event proceeds will help benefit at risk youth in joint partnership with ‘Take It by Force Ministries’(TIBFM), founder Alea Mitchell. TIBFM is a non-profit organization committed to reaching youth. West Creek Middle School student and author of the book Stop Bullying, Robyn Gordon, plays the lead role in the bullying scene.
“I think this play sends a direct message for everyone and especially when it comes to bullying,” said Gordon, age 12.
Several other youth participate in the play as well. Executive Producer Treva Gordon would like to give a special thanks to all who have joined together to make this event possible, including: Fox’s BBQ, Flowers by Tara, and Queen City College—all based in Clarksville, Tenn.
This holiday special is just what the doctor ordered for the busy season ahead. Surely the cast, producers and crew are looking forward to seeing the house packed for both shows.
Tickets are available online via Eventbrite for $20 and will also be for sale at the door for $25. For more information call (931)-980-4661.
