Urban theatre enthusiasts around Grand Rapids are all abuzz about the highly anticipated arrival of Church Girl. This provocative yet profound musical stage play, based on actual true stories and testimonies, was written and produced by Angela Barrow-Dunlap and directed by Reuben Yabuku.
Church Girl tells the story of Emily Franklin, the seemingly wholesome daughter of a prominent pastor, who is seduced by the charms of a worldly life. Emily is hiding a very shocking secret and like all things evil, it is festering. Emily has been working diligently to cover up the dark choices she has made, but when her secret is exposed, events take a dramatic turn and skeletons coming crashing out of her closet. Everyone wants to know what could push a quintessential church girl to turn her back on everything she has been taught.
Church Girl infuses the magic of phenomenal music, a cast of colorful characters, and amazing dance performances to take audiences on an unforgettable ride through the pains and pleasures of tasting the "forbidden fruit" to the ultimate height of redemption.
Church Girl: The Musical will be at DeVos Performance Hall on February 14th, 2011 at 7:30pm.
