Performance brings word of prophets to life

On Nov. 1 Brad Sherrill will present a live performance and multimedia, bringing the words of Isaiah and Jeremiah to life, creating an extraordinary evening of theater. Sherrill is an Atlanta-based professional actor and performer who gained recognition with his off-Broadway and subsequent national touring performance of The Gospel of John. Between 2001 and 2007, Sherrill's one-person live performance of the fourth New Testament gospel (which Sherrill memorized and performs in its 20,000 word entirety) appeared over 600 times in cathedrals, churches and profession theaters across Europe, Canada, and the United States, including a performance in Soldotna.

"Prophets" is his new work, a one-person performance utilizing texts from the Books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Amos. It is blended with the poetry to the Old Testament Prophets and multi-media, to be relevant to those of us living at the beginning of the 21st Century. "Prophets" deals with the great Biblical themes. It runs 95 minutes without intermission.

The performance will be held at Soldotna United Methodist Church on Binkley. Advance tickets are encouraged. Admission for adults is $15 and students, seniors, and military, $10. For more information call 283-7469.
