For A Dear And Faithful Friend

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It has been such a delight for me, watching the faces of people leaving the theater after seeing “Say Nicklaus.” We have such a capacity for joy, particularly during this special season. When a message strikes a chord deeply, and it resonates with the Spirit who indwells every Christian, that joy bubbles up and flows to everyone around us. It is such a privilege to be engaged in work that has such an effect. I get told over and over…

“Say Nicklaus” Is Absolutely Wonderful. Here’s why.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I wish I could express how thankful I am. Robin and I have been talking this morning about the blessings of Ragtown Gospel Theater. “SAY NICKLAUS” opened last weekend, and apparently everyone who came has been telling everyone they know, “You’ve got to see this play!” The phone has been ringing off the wall, which, it occurs to me, is a phrase that no longer makes sense in this iEverything age. Since I carry my phone in my back pocket…well…

NEWSFLASH! GUY PENROD IS COMING TO RAGTOWN, WE’RE GOING TO ISRAEL, AND “SAY NICKLAUS” STARTS NOVEMBER 9TH

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Yes!  GUY PENROD is coming to RAGTOWN! This special concert will be November 5th at 7:00. You can call our toll free ticket line to purchase your tickets for that show right now. That number is 1-877-RAGTOWN.  I am pretty much beside myself about having Guy Penrod perform at Ragtown. We had a chance to meet him in Louisville in 2010, and started then talking about a date when he might come out. So many people around here know him…

Mystery of the Hebrew Scribe Starts August 10th!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The set is being built and rehearsals are in full swing for a new show opening August 10th. The play is called “Mystery of the Hebrew Scribe” and it is an unintentional comedy. I say “unintentional” because for the months that I chewed on this idea, did the biblical research, sketched and outlined the story, it didn’t occur to me that it was going to be funny. But when the words began to come…it was. It is funny the way…

“PENTECOST” IS COMING MAY 11th!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The idea of doing two musicals that bookend the life of Jesus was an ambitious goal, but if you believe God has planted a seed, then all you can do is pick up your tools and get to work. We staged the beginning of the story,”Bethlehem,” in December 2010, and again this past December. Glenn Polk and our amazing acting troupe did a wonderful job, as they always do.  There were some very special, very unforgettable moments in both productions….

GOD’S ANSWER WAS “YES!” $355,233.75…EVERY PENNY WAS RECEIVED AND THE DEBT IS PAID IN FULL!!!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Let me tell you about a miracle! When we’re in the middle of the storm, and the waves of fear are crashing over us while we’re trying to cling to faith, it is usually hard to see the blessing out there on the horizon. We pray to remember it is there. We remind each other that growth comes through the trials. We quote Romans 8:28 to ourselves and each other, along with other encouragements like “God is behind every door.”…

A SPECIAL ENCORE PERFORMANCE OF “SAINT JOHN AND THE TELEVANGELIST”…and An Update On the March Miracle!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Saturday, April 7th at 3:00 we will be staging a special encore of a play that has been the hands down favorite of more people than any of our previous 17 productions. SAINT JOHN AND THE TELEVANGELIST stars Bill Woodard in an endearing portrayal of the Apostle John, and Glenn Polk as the outrageously funny Reverend Joey Hallelujah. We have had comments ranging from “Even funnier than Greater Tuna!”  to “This was the best presentation of the gospel I have…

Our Lord Is Amazing

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

God shows Himself to us through our brothers and sisters all the time. We may not always see that it is Him. Small acts of His affection and kindness are subtle, and often chalked up to mere thoughtfulness. But there are times when God reveals Himself so clearly, and in such an extravagantly wonderful way that even the lost are amazed. Over this past week, we have had the opportunity to see God so clearly that there is no way…

“I’ll Do The Miracle”

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There’s a song that I love to sing. It is called “I’ll Do The Miracle.” It is a song about God’s ability to do anything, and I believe it. There are times in all our lives that we come to a place where a miracle is the only answer. I’ve seen miracles, as have you. Right now we are praying for a big one at Ragtown Gospel Theater. Well…big to us. Just a smile and a nod for God. See,…

“Wow! The Best One Ever!” That’s What People Are Saying About “Saint John & The Televangelist”

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

What an amazing opening weekend we had! The Reverend Joey Hallelujah has arrived! He is definitely the televangelist by which all other televangelists will forevermore be measured. I have seen my amazing brother, Glenn Polk, portraying dozens of characters over our lifetime together, but this particular one comes alive in a whole new dimension. I know I say this about every play we produce, but seriously… you have to see “Saint John & The Televangelist.” It is just absolutely wonderful….
