Published 9:19 pm Wednesday, April 20, 2011

The Dunn’s Chapel A.M.E. youth department will be hosting what has been described as an “eye-opening” play on Good Friday titled, “No More Second Chances.”

The purpose of the play is to look at what happens to individuals when bad things happen.

Sharon Green, Director of the Dunn Chapel A.M.E. youth program, wrote and directed the play and said she hopes it inspires people to grow closer to Christ.

“The play is basically a salvation-type of play about judgment,” Green said. “I hope this play will help in getting people saved and lead them closer to Christ.”

Green said the play depicts scenes of heaven and hell in hopes of encouraging people to think about what happens after this life is over.

According to Green, nothing is more important than living one’s life for Christ and abiding by Christian values and she said the youth performing in the play will provide examples of how God deals with us at our best and our worst.

Green also said that the youth performing in Good Friday’s play are looking forward to their upcoming performance.

“The children are excited and look forward to performing these different scenes,” Green said. “They are death and life scenes from day-to-day life.”

Green said the play was titled appropriately, because “after you die, there are no more second chances.”

In addition to the Dunn Chapel A.M.E. youth, the play features members from various local area churches, including: St. Paul A.M.E. Church, Antioch Baptist Church, Shiloh Baptist Church, Youngblood Temple and Friendship Baptist Church.

“This play is kind of like a community event,” Green said. “I didn’t want this to be just a ‘one church’ thing, so that’s why I got more churches involved.”

Green said she hopes that by involving the different local area churches it will have a positive effect on the turn out.

The play will be performed at 6 p.m. at A New Beginning For You, Inc., located at 719 N. Three Notch St.
