This gospel musical is an original creative work adapted from the popular play “What Will the Rapture Be Like” by Gerald Saffold. Set in modern times, this musical poses the question of whether to allow the cares of the world to reveal their true character and live for Christ or to succumb to worldly pleasures and miss “The Rapture.”
Directed by Evaughn High and music director Jermaine Rideout, the play is a dramatization of the second coming of Christ through narration, led by Mario J. Brown.
Featuring characters who have experienced difficult places, including a fake church, this musical chronicles the story of the “Mother of Zion,” portrayed by Chicago native Bridgette Hurt, who finds it difficult to overcome life’s challenges raising her children.
This event is presented by No Middle Ground Worship Center, Inc, and Eve’s Wisdom Productions, LLC, independent organizations separate from the Marcus Performing Arts Center.
