Each group’s production will staged at the Peace Memorial Hall for three nights – Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Agape Methodist Dramatists’ production for this year is titled “Stone”. Kevin Rodriguez, actor, playright and member of Agape, describes the drama as a thriller and says it is a story of life after death. Ever wonder what life is like after we die? Come and see Agape’s version of the phenomenon between November 1st and 3rd at 8 nightly.

This year will mark Remnants of Gideon’s third year in the festival and they will be staging Broken Circles. The drama is written and directed by Sheree Dennie-Edward, who is the Ministry Leader of Exalt Him Worship Ministries, which is the umbrella ministry for Praise Order Gospel Band, Exalt Him Worship Team, the Remnants of Gideon drama group and two dance groups.

Remnants of Gideon returned to SVG on October 29, 2013, after a week school tour in Jamaica and are spiritually refreshed and revived. They are working assiduously on their final preparations to grace the stage at the Peace Memorial Hall next weekend, November 8, 9 and 10. Patrons who attended last year’s show “Bride of Envy” can look forward to Quia and Tooty in different, but just as captivating roles, as many of the ills of society are brought to the fore and ways of overcoming them are illustrated. Remnants promise not only to have an excellent production this year on the stage, but additional value for money through their pre-show, which begins at 8 p.m. each night. Remnants of Gideon are offering early bird ticket sale specials, as well as group and family rates.

Tickets are available at Aeropost, from all members of Exalt Him and persons can contact Exalt Him on their Facebook page to arrange the purchase of tickets or for more information on how they can partner with Remnants of Gideon to glorify God in this year’s drama festival.

The Performing Arts Society of the St Vincent Community College, with their play titled “Mothers Know Best”; Police Drama Club’s “Be Careful Little Mouth”; and the Division of Nursing’s “Scandals Exposed” will bring up the rear of the festival.
