The Redeemer University College Theatre Arts Department presents Cotton Patch Gospel January 26-30, 2016.

Jesus was born in a stable in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, but what if he’d been born in another place, at another time? He’d still be the son of God, but how would the story of his birth, death and resurrection be different?

Cotton Patch Gospel is a musical written by Tom Key and Russell Treyz, and features the music of Harry Chapin (best-known for “Cat’s in the Cradle”). It uses the Gospels of Matthew and John to re-imagine the story of Christ in a small town in Georgia. With this new setting, great storytelling and charming, folksy music, the Gospel message is retold with energy, wonder, humour and humanity.

Directed by Raymond Louter, professor in Redeemer’s theatre arts department, and with music direction by Jeanine Noyes, Cotton Patch Gospel promises to be a memorable theatrical, and deeply spiritual, experience.
