A joyous, musical adaptation of the Gospels of Matthew and John!
A gem of musical theater, this reverent adaption of “The Greatest Story Ever Told” transplants the story of Jesus into the mid-20th-century American South and considers what might have happened had Jesus been born in Georgia — with Gainesville standing in for Bethlehem, Valdosta for Nazareth and Atlanta as the fateful Jerusalem. A cast of exuberant actors/singers/musicians takes the audience on a fun, foot-stomping and inspiring journey with plenty of places to laugh and cry. Presented with zest and uninhibited joy, Cotton Patch Gospel is sure to be a season favorite, especially if you enjoyed the Smoke on the Mountain trilogy.
