Editor, The Liberty County Community has proven itself again in the support of Love-It Production’s most recent performance “You Don’t Know Me Until You Need Me.” It was presented May 10 at Full Gospel Tabernacle Church of God In Christ. The enthusiastic audience of over 200 was provided the opportunity to enjoy a dinner meal prepared by Kahn’s Family Catering and to enjoy another original stage play all in one location.
The opening act of Racean Ford, Sideeq Heard and Javon James performed a Love-It Productions original skit, “We Ain’t Scared of Mama.” The audience was pleasantly surprised by the talent of these young high school students. Look for them in future productions. The cast of Hillary Scales, Paulette Robertson, Shade-Ashleigh Williams and Charolette Lovette-Norman gave their best performance ever in the main event “You Don’t Know Me until You Need Me.” The play, a musical, showcased two songs I wrote. The first, “Everything’s Betta’ with Netta’” was a jazzy number performed superbly by Shade-Ashleigh Williams. The audience responded with an enthusiastic show of approval. The second was the grand finale number, “It’s Time to Call Home.” Sang in the Supremes style it won the cast a standing ovation. So much so that an encore performance of the song was done.
I would like to thank the community for its support and expressed desire to see additional productions on a regular basis. I would also like to thank the cast for a job well done. Additionally I would like to thank Kahn’s Family Catering, the Love-It Productions management team and Pastor A.D. Shaw and the Full Gospel Family. The following sponsors are especially appreciated for their support: Liberty Regional Medical Center, Coastal OBGYN, Frasier’s Barber Shop, Victory Trophies, Johnson’s Family Dentistry, A. Washington & CO, WGML AM 990, Media on the Move, In and Out of Focus, Countywide Youth Crusade and the Coastal Courier.

Red carpet night, which sold out last year, is Aug. 16 at Brewton-Parker, preceded by a reception. This event is black tie.
