Story Abstract

“The Rock & the Rabbi” shows relationship between Peter and Jesus.

Story

Many Southern students have grown up watching VeggieTales, or the Gospel movies. Still others have seen Bible stories illustrated in felt form for children stories, read in Sabbath schools, or acted out in skits. On October 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Iles P.E. Center, students and community members will have the opportunity to witness a Bible story told in a form unlike any mentioned above.  “The Rock and the Rabbi” a widely acclaimed and popular show is coming to Southern.

The show chronicles the Bible story of the disciple Peter and his relationship with Jesus. Danny Hamilton wrote and directs the music, while the book was written and is read by Gary Richardson. Pam Dietrich, an administrative assistant in Student Services, has already seen the show and was pivotal in helping bring it to Southern.

“The show is a wonderful mix of music, drama, and dialogue,” Dietrich said. “It is truly something that all ages will enjoy.”

This happens to be the last show of the year for this group, but they’ve been touring the country for 14 years now. In addition to getting a powerful performance, the audience will have an opportunity to meet the cast after the show, a tradition they’ve done at each performance.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for the general admission event. People are encouraged to come early for best seats. Admission is $10 for adults, $20 for families and free to students with a Southern I.D. For tickets/information contact Student Services at 423.236.2814.
