For 16 years, members of the West End Assembly of God have portrayed the story of Jesus using narration, music and dance. A cast of 190 members ranging in age from 6 to 94 will bring the story to life on the church's stage at 401 N. Parham Road today through Sunday.Beginning in February when the cast started rehearsals, the play has been perfected by dedicated church members who have given their time and talent in not just this but other productions throughout the year.
Though I've not seen the Easter play, I've attended the Christmas production and it is an amazing thing to see. West End is professional in its presentations and it's easy to get lost in the wonderment of the extravaganza and the Bible stories that are told through this entertaining format. Angels fly ... Chris ascends through the ceiling.
As good as all that is, perhaps one of the high points is that a fellow blogger who lives in the Richmond area is part of this production as well as others put on by West End.
This video clip offers a glimpse of what to expect. If you go, performances are tonight through Sunday.
