Blountstown High School Choir, under the direction of Janet Edewaard and Cherie White, will perform FOR UNTO Y’ALL, this Thursday and Friday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Thursday night’s performance will immediately follow the first annual BHS Christmas Tree Lighting! Admission is $3.
Donavan Ebersole is JOSEPH and Savannah Taylor is MARY. GABRIEL is played by Walker Strawn and GRACIE is played by Brittany Bailey. DR. LUKE TROTTER, David Causey, serves as the narrator for the musical. A cast of 60 students will fill the stage with songs and dance.
Underneath its western songs and cowboy trappings, FOR UNTO Y’ALL is simply a re-telling of Luke’s classic story of the birth of the Son of God. Only this time, the place is the Old West, instead of ancient Israel. But while the setting may change, the truth never will. Like old Gabriel puts it – “For unto y’all is born this day, right over yonder in the town of Bethlehem, a Savior who is Christ the Lord!” And that, my friends, is the Truth – with or without drawl.
