For Hometown News

The Christian Musical "A Journey To Redemption" by Andre Darby will be staged at the Athens Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 23.

The story centers on a backsliding preacher who finds it extremely hard to cope after losing his seven-year-old son to Sickle Cell Anemia. Although he has preached the power of God's healing countless times, he finds himself in a battle with his faith and now relies on alcohol for comfort.

His hopeful wife continues to exemplify her faith, believing that one day her husband will find redemption and return to the office of ministry.

The play is a twist of tear-dropping moments with a mixture of comedy and powerful singing. With poignant original songs, such as "Don't Die In The Storm," and a few classic Gospel hits, this vibrant production is sure to touch your heart and soul, while asking hard questions about our daily lives.

Two performances are planned, one at 3:30 p.m. and the evening performance at 7:30 p.m. Advance admission for each performance is $20 for preferred seating (row A-E), $15 for adult general admission, $13 for seniors, $10 for students and $13 each for groups of eight or more $13. Tickets are $2 more if purchased at the door, except student tickets remain at $10.

The Athens Theatre is at 124 N. Florida Avenue, DeLand. Parking is free. All tickets available online at www.AthensDeLand.com, the Elusive Grape at 133 N. Woodland Blvd. in DeLand or by calling the Athens Box Office at (386) 736-1500. Box Office hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and one hour before live performances.
