'Pentecost', the Musical begins Friday
Published May 10, 2012 @ 7:47 a.m.
The next homemade biblical drama at the Ragtown Gospel Theater is the musical 'Pentecost', the sequel to 2010's 'Bethlehem'.
As described by playwright Chip Polk on the theater's web site, 'Pentecost' is a story that "will let us see the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus from a perspective that I believe will help us grasp more fully the magnitude of that astounding series of events. It is the rest of the story, in which Jesus is reunited with the Father in Heaven, while His followers who remain on Earth struggle to hold onto their faith, as they await the promised Holy Spirit."
The musical is directed by and stars Glenn Polk as God the Father. He'll be accompanied by Gabriel Ramirez as Jesus and David Brantley as Satan.
The music will be performed by the cast and members of the Ragtown Gospel Band with special musical performances by Chip Polk and Brenda Rhoades.
Pentecost opens May 11 and will run for seven consecutive weekends with shows on Fridays at 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 in groups of 12 or more and $10.00 for students and children. Tickets can be purchased online or at the theater.
