Sharing the gospel play is “sure to make you laugh and cry,” Richard JR Reynolds is looking forward to bringing “God’s Plan” to the Cartersville stage. Saturday will mark the second time Eagle Vision will produce this production.
“There are different stories, from a mother having issues with loving her children because of the way she grew up and now it affected the way she loves, to a husband [and] wife trying to conceive,” said Reynolds, the writer and director of “God’s Plan.” “The overall theme is we all have a story, but whatever the outcome [it] is God’s plan.
“I pray attendees’ faith is stronger after seeing this show. Leaving knowing whatever my situation — either it’s love issues or trying to conceive — God has a plan.”
Starting at 6 p.m., “God’s Plan” will be presented at The Grand Theatre in downtown Cartersville.
“My overall inspiration for writing this show came when I wrote a scene for a local acting competition called Rep Your Act. I took a look at the scene and made an entire show from it,” Reynolds said, adding, “the steps of a good man are ordered by God. He has a plan regardless of how we feel or what we think.”
Established in 1910, The Grand Theatre is situated at 7 N. Wall St.
According to the venue’s website, “The Grand Theatre continues to remind us of a past rich with exciting entertainment. It also provides many opportunities for citizens of all ages to participate in the performing arts. Our vision is to continue to serve as the cultural center for the Cartersville/ Bartow County area and beyond while building on our heritage.
“We will use every resource to make true The Grand Theatre’s theme through its history: There’s something for everyone at The Grand Theatre. The mission of the historic Grand Theatre is to foster a lifelong appreciation for the performing arts by offering quality educational programs and providing a variety of cultural events to diverse audiences in Bartow County.”
Tickets for “God’s Plan” will be $25 for adults, and $20 for students 18 and younger and seniors older than 50.
“We’re excited to have them rent our space because it allows our patrons to experience something a little different than they might be accustomed to,” said Kristy Montgomery, program director for The Grand. “It’s not often that we have nonmusical plays presented at the theater, and it’s always a wonderful thing to have something put onstage that is a passion project for those putting it there.”
