Actor Brad Sherrill will present his new multimedia theatrical experience of Prophets (based on Isaiah, Jeremiah and other prophetic texts) at Emmanuel College on Monday, February 7 at 7:00 p.m. in the Swails Center.
This powerful, free event is open to the public and is sponsored by EC’s Cultural Awareness Program (CAP). It features images and sound design where prophets are called in like witnesses in a courtroom as images illustrating judgment, loss, promise and hope pass by on a large video screen.
“These texts for me are not dusty, flattened, closed off in some book,” Sherrill says. “Just like the greatest stuff in Shakespeare, there is something there that has kept them alive and relevant.”
Prophets had its theatrical debut at the Conant Performing Arts Center in Atlanta during March 2010 and is now on a U.S. tour.
Sherrill, a 22-year member of the Georgia Shakespeare Theater Company, now devotes eight months of the year to his faith-based theater work. His previous visit to EC was in 2006 when he presented The Gospel of John, a show he performed 600 times across the world.
