The Baptist


Directing the largest cast yet to assemble in a Ragtown production, Glenn Polk brings John the Baptist to life in an exhilarating portrayal of the man God chose for the honor of heralding the coming of His Son.

Playwright Chip Polk, once again, has delivered a fresh and innovative perspective on another among the close circle of family and friends of Jesus.

John, called the “Baptist,” was the final prophet to proclaim the coming Messiah, and in many ways, the first evangelist, proclaiming the arrival of the Kingdom of Heaven. No one since Moses had been entrusted exclusively with such a message. The message John proclaimed was the best news for mankind since creation.

The Baptist weaves together humor and humanity to create a surprising and unforgettable portrait of the enigmatic prophet.
