Tickets are available to see Blue Mountain College’s play about Gospel of John this week.

“John, His Story” brings to life the miracles of Jesus chronicled in the Gospel of John and seen through the eyes of ordinary people — the disciples, beggars, the wealthy, the lame and the marginalized.

“This production has been challenging for the actors, who portray multiple characters,” BMC Director Christi Mitchell said. “Our six actors interpret more than 20 individuals described in the Gospel of John.”

There will be performances at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at Garrett Hall Auditorium in the Blue Mountain College Department of Fine Arts.

The cast of “John, His Story” is made up of BMC students including Emily Canoy, a freshman from Myrtle; Jessica Clevenger, a sophomore from Ashville, Ala.;  Joey Ellis, a freshman from Durant; Simeon Harris, a sophomore from Jasper, Ind.; Seth Pierce, a junior from Martin, Tenn.; and, Mikayla Rayburn, a sophomore from Ripley.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for senior adults and students. To make reservations, contact Christi Mitchell at 662.685.4771 (Ext. 113) or email her at cmitchell@bmc.edu.

“John, His Story” was written by by Jeanette Clift George.

This is the second production at BMC for director Christi Mitchell, who serves as an assistant professor of speech and theatre.  Last fall, she directed the Christmas-themed “Amahl and the Night Visitors.”

Mitchell also works with the BMC theatre ensemble, IMPACT, which tours the area presenting various types of theatrical programs.
