Atlanta-based actor Brad Sherrill has memorized the book of Acts as well as letters from Paul found in the New Testament.
Now, he will share those words during a one-man performance of “Apostle,” which is an adaptation based on the life of Paul, a follower of Jesus Christ.
The one-man show includes an original 2015 visual presentation from various sites Paul would have visited throughout Greece and Turkey. And with perhaps a dozen simple props used in a variety of ways, Sherrill transforms the gospel into a captivating drama, presenting the entire story of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The 92-minute performance with a 15-minute intermission will be at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8, at First Presbyterian Church, 800 S. Enota Drive, in Gainesville. It is part of Sherrill’s tour of churches across the United States.
Seating at the church begins at 3:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults at the door. Students and children may enter for free.
Sherrill planned to present “Apostle” just once at his home church in Atlanta. But since 2001, he has performed John’s gospel more than 600 times in professional theaters and churches throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
A 25-year member of the Georgia Shakespeare theater company in Atlanta, Sherrill now devotes eight months of the year to the ongoing U.S. tour of his faith-based theater work. He has acted professionally in Atlanta since 1983. He was selected by Atlanta Magazine in 2000 as Atlanta’s Best Dramatic Actor and by Creative Loafing (another Atlanta publication) in 2001 as Atlanta’s Best Actor.
Sherrill has performed in 15 productions at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre and is an artistic associate for the Georgia Shakespeare Theatre where he has acted in more than 45 productions in 24 seasons.
