Brant Hansen show co host/producer Sherri Lynn, has written and directed the musical comedy “The Bold and the Sanctified” which will live stream nationwide on February 26th at 8 PM. This hilarious comedy, about race, healing and unity in the church, chronicles the struggles a black Pastor and white Pastor face when they combine their congregations for financial reasons. Racial conflict and tension ensue from the very beginning. From the choir to the pulpit to even the ushers – EVERYTHING is hilariously affected by the union! Can they make it work? With no better time to talk about race, this wildly funny musical gives the church an opportunity to lead the way.
“The Bold and the Sanctified” will be performed live at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL on February 26th at 2 and 7 PM, with the nationwide opportunity to watch the livestream at 8 PM.
