Thursday, November 30 - Sunday, December 3

A&T Theatre Arts Presents: Gospel Musical "Sanctified"

The Theatre Arts program will present "Sanctified," Nov. 30 - Dec. 3, in the Paul Robeson Theatre. Written and Directed by Javon Johnson, "Sanctified" is the story of small black church, standing on its traditions (and its last legs!) and is faced with the challenge of working together in their last-ditch effort for a successful revival in hopes of rebuilding their reputation and their congregation. The task seems overwhelming when their young, newly acquired interim Pastor, Harold P. Jones attempts to upgrade the choir's lackluster repertoire. His ideas prove to be a little too fast-paced for the elders, even more so when the Pastor seeks help from his cousin, the diva-of-all-divas and gospel singer extraordinaire Sister Paulette Denise Jones. Things quickly seem to go downhill, but all may not be lost. That is if Mister and Sir, an unlikely and hilariously bickering odd couple on a secret mission of their own, can assist in the success of this revival. Ticket pricing and purchase are available at the A&T Ticket Office at 336-334-7749 or at www.ncataggies.com. A&T students are admitted free with a valid Aggie One card.
