Fridays and Saturdays

By June 16, 2007 One Comment

Last night 4HEAVENSAKE gave the audience at Ragtown Gospel Theater an outstanding performance.   Sadly, it was Paul Hollabaugh’s final appearance with the group. After three years in the deep end of the quartet, Paul is moving to Florida.  I’m sure the Lord will lead the right guy to them to fill the vacancy, but we’ll miss having Paul on our stage.  It was a sweet  night that we all got to share.  Being their last time to perform together with Paul, I think we all got the benefit of all the love those fellows have for each other.  It was right there for us to hear.

Tonight we have Sisters Joy, a trio from Lamesa, Texas performing.  I have been listening to their CD all week, and I am looking  forward to seeing them on the Ragtown Gospel Theater stage.  We have plenty of seats available, and you can purchase those at the door. 

Of course, our presentation of Peter the Rock, follows the concert.  Every night I am touched and amazed by GLENN POLK’S ability to bring such substance to the personality of Peter.   Glenn is my brother.  I grew up with him, and know him better than anyone, but even for me, the actor disappears, and Peter emerges to share his fear, passion, and a humble, gentle heart.  It is more than acting we’re seeing, folks.  You don’t want to miss this. 

Being open only three months, we are learning things every week.  Audiences are growing, and we are so thankful for that, but I have been surprised about Saturday nights.  I thought Saturday audiences would be our largest, but that isn’t the case. 

We’ve speculated that the liklihood of a large percentage of Ragtown audiences attending church on Sunday morning may account for Friday nights being our big night.  People don’t want to be out late on Saturday, then try to get up early Sunday.

Consequently. we’re kicking around changing our opening time from 8:00 to 7:30, which would mean the show would be over at 9:30 or so.  If you have any input on that idea, send me a note at chip@ragtown.com, or post your comment below.  In fact, we’re always looking for ways to make everyone’s experience at Ragtown Gospel Theater better.  We welcome your suggestions, encouragement, and most of all, your prayers.   Now call somebody and say, “Let’s go to Post!”

Bless Yall!

    What a wonderful time we had last night at Ragtown Gospel Theater! God is so good! He has blessed your family with wonderful talent! To be able to entertain as well as spreading God’s word, and love what you are doing to boot, must be wonderful! Praise to our Lord and Savior! We will be back!
