To give everyone an opportunity to experience this dynamic Christian comedy, admission is FREE. A free will offering will be taken at the presentation – 7:30 p.m., April 30, Word of Deliverance, 693 Fresno 45240.
Almost Saved: 99 ½ and A Half of That, written, directed and produced by Overseer Anthony Hunter, uses laughter to bring out serious issues too long “swept under the rug.” It’s a frank, laugh a minute play, but suitable for the whole family -- men, women, teens, boys and girls.
“I believe as it says in Proverbs, that `laughter doeth good like a medicine,’” said Hunter. “Almost Saved looks at the challenges of being single and unattached in our society, while still seeking to have a real relationship with God.”
The production has 20 cast members, including 12 talented Gospel singing artists. Along with the fine acting, you’ll enjoy soul stirring Gospel songs – old and new. The play also includes an original song written by Hunter for the play called, appropriately, “Almost Saved.” The special guest soloist at Word of Deliverance will be Mother Dorothy Bostick.
“As the audience meets Mary, the main character and sees her antics, they will laugh so hard it hurts. But it’s all good clean fun,” Hunter adds.
You’ll never forget the characters you meet in Almost Saved – Mary, the Deacon, the Preacher, the Old Church Mother and of course, the men in Mary’s life. You’ll laugh out loud when you see Mary go from the church to the club to the bed to the streets to the revival and back again.
“The central message is that the fulfillment, the true relationship Mary and all of us are seeking is really a true relationship with Jesus Christ,” Hunter said. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these other things will be added unto you. That’s the relationship that’s lacking.”
FREE open admission at the door. The doors will open 45 minutes before the performance. For more information, call (513) 225-5853.
