GRAMBLING, LA – Grambling State University Theatre will present The Amen Corner, by James Baldwin September 24-27, 2013.

The Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Grambling State University is pleased to announce its 2013-2014 season opener, The Amen Corner by James Baldwin at the Floyd L. Sandle Theatre, located in the Conrad Hutchinson Performing Arts Center.

Come be a part of the congregation as Sister Margaret (played by Ashley Boston) delivers us to a righteous life. All is well in the store-front church until the past “comes home.” Watch as the secrets unfold and what was perceived as merciful and good becomes scorned and ridiculed.

Godwin, the production staff includes Donovan Taylor as production stage manager, Brandon McKnight and Dawn Clements as assistant stage manager, John Shadowinds as set and light designer, Collin Jno-Finn as prop and sound designer, and Teshia Lincoln as costume designer.

The cast includes: Ashley Boston as Sister Margaret, Ashlee Lackey as Odessa, Anthony Broadway as David, Tiana Alexander as Sister Moore, Kedrick Smith as Brother Boxer, Melanie Williams as Sister Boxer, Kdeja Johnson as Ida Jackson, Jayla Fountain as Sister Douglas, Rachel Chinn as Sister Sally, Kadarius Gray as Brother Rice and Justin Owens as ensemble/Brother Boxer understudy.
