Editor, On behalf of Love-It-Productions I want to thank all volunteers and sponsors for their support during the production of “Mama Turn the Radio On II:  It Ain’t Easy.” I cannot express what it means to me and the cast to have the honor to present a little Broadway to our local community.  To have it so well received is icing on the cake.
Preparation for this production required long hours of writing, learning parts, rehearsals, onstage and backstage coordination.  The standing ovation the cast received on Sunday made it all worthwhile. We have already received several messages of the effect of the play on the lives of many of those in attendance. To that I say, “Do what you do, God!”
Reaching this point was made possible by divine intervention and a devoted cast; namely, Charolette L. Norman, Kenneth Howard, Randy Knox, Anthony Johnson, Rodney Jackson, Ann Baker, Larry Baker, Carolyn Simmons, Hillary Scales, Jasmine Tyson, Kelaiah Rose, Ritchie Anderson, Racean Ford, Darius Booker, Sideeq Heard, Shade-Ashleigh Williams and the Rev. Ritchie Williams. Providing the best of gospel music was Ms. Lisa J. Cheney and the Baconton Baptist Church Adult Choir. Great instrumentals were provided by Linus Woodard and Jerry Sapp. Andrew Williams, DeLesa Espada, David Gardner, Neomi Ford, Vonn Jackson and Brenda Baker are the best support staff ever. Thanks also to Gale Dent, Laucenia Frasier, Kahn’s Family Catering, Satin Sax, Media on the Move, In and Out of Focus and to all the back stage crew. Pastor A.D. Shaw and the Full Gospel Church Family are the best collaborative partners we could ask for.
The following sponsors are deeply appreciated for their generous contributions in these tough economic times: the city of Flemington, Coastal Health District, Georgia Power, Full Gospel Tabernacle, McDonald’s, AWashington and Company, Thrift Auto Repair, Family Dentistry, Johnson Dental Group, The Heritage Bank, Liberty Regional Medical Center, WGML, TOP Christian Book Store, Brewton-Parker College, Strategic Business Solutions, The Fraser Center, CH2MHill/OMI and Colonial Bridal Shop/The Castle.
At each show I encouraged the audience to patronize your businesses. I pray God’s richest blessings and increase to your territory. The Liberty County Historical Society, St. Luke Baptist Church, Eleven Black Men of Liberty County, Live Oak Church of God and First Zion Baptist Church are especially appreciated for their group efforts to support the production. Thanks to each of you for your vote of confidence in Love-It-Productions.
Please mark your calendars to see the encore of “The Under Dogs.” This Love-It Productions original play was written especially for youth. It demonstrates that it’s not what you wear or where you live, but it’s what’s in your heart and head that really count. First performed by local youth July 10 in Riceboro, it is scheduled to be presented and greatly enhanced on Oct. 31 at Full Gospel Tabernacle.
This play intertwines acting and singing with articulation, teamwork, organization, Liberty County history and other life skills critical to youth development. Please plan now to support our youth who are thrilled to debut their acting talents under the bright lights.
We are beginning to get offers to take our plays on the road. For this we are thankful. We solicit your prayers as we begin to prepare our company to showcase and to share with others the messages of the plays and the great talent Liberty County has to offer.  Thanks again. See you in October.
