The large set covered three sections of the Aurora Stage, with Margaret’s home kitchen on the far left, the church with its stained glass windows, piano, and folding chairs in the center, and on the far right, a bedroom in the home used by her ailing husband.
“The Amen Corner” was produced by DARRYL REUBEN HALL, Founder and Executive Director of Stage Aurora. Mr. Hall has enriched the local theatre scene for over ten years with his commitment to bringing the staging of the rich African-American experience to North Florida theatre patrons. Stage Aurora in October 2013 participated in the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival, and Mr. Hall’s original script, “Frat House,” won a festival award for “Favorite Script Playwright.”
We enjoyed our first ever James Baldwin play and are looking forward to two upcoming Stage Aurora productions, with DREAMGIRLS on January 31, 2014, followed by A RAISIN IN THE SUN in March.
