If you missed it before, “Slabtown District Convention” is coming back to town. Mark your calendars for some thigh-slapping, toe tapping laughter. When this cast of ladies and two gentlemen meet up, they take church meetings to another level in this one-act play complete with hymns and spirituals by the harmonic “Happy Hollow Choir”. This is a very popular comedic church play written by Nannie H. Burroughs in the early twenties. Everyone laughs but the principals of the play are practical teaching still today.
This event is performed by “AGH” Performing Arts Group and all proceeds will go to the Historically African-American West Lawn Cemetery which was vandalized earlier this year. Benefits received will be to secure fencing. (“AGH” is an acronym for the name of the play directors, Mary Alexander, Debbie Grey and Phedelma Hancock).
The Play will be held at Grace Temple Church Eternal Life Center located at 208 Garden Drive on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 6PM. Tickets may be purchased at Money Services at Central Shopping Center located at 1111 North Roan Street; Johnson City, TN. General Admissions – $15; Seniors and Students w/valid ID – $12; Limited VIP seating – $25; Family of four discount – $40
