The Church of Yesteryear, an original play, written by Eutaw native, Carrie L Coleman, had its premier performance this past Saturday at the Carver Middle School gym. The photo above shows the full cast taking their bows at the end of the play.
An enthusiastic audience of 250 or more local residents viewed and enjoyed the almost two hour play, which featured many local residents in starring roles. The play includes many musical moments when the assembled church congregation/cast and audience sing gospel favorites and hymns.
The play is about the religious rituals and colorful characters that made up the Black church experience of the past with some relevance to the present day.
The play was presented as a benefit with all proceeds from ticket sales and donations going to the Greene County Health System Foundation.
