CBA Junior Play & Senior Supper March 6

Corn, OKLA — For the six Porter children, growing up in a minister’s family has tribulations that most children escape. Mr. and Mrs. Porter (Levi McAbee and Hannah Hays) try to give their children in a normal raising without the stigma of being preacher’s children. But, they can’t roller skate in public because some of the parishioners object, and the boys cannot protect their cotton patch from a gang of “toughs” because their father opposes fighting. The Smith sisters, (Marissa Graf and Madeline Mann) daughters of the richest parishioners, try to make the preacher’s sons, Raybon (Ruben Marrufo) and Cecil (Rusty Epp) date them—or else! Katy Porter, (Katrina Wichert) a photography enthusiast, even helps foil some bank robbing bandits. The troublemaker next door, Miss Jonas (played by Jennifer Friesen), even objects to frail Alyene (Madison Musick) reciting poems by Shakespeare. Weaving through all this is a delightful boy/girl complication in which two brothers want to date the same girl, Helen Ludlow (senior, Cassie Oliver) while their sister Jeanette (Tiffani Isaac) is being courted by a would-be-musician. The eldest of the Porter children, Hugh (or Denton Drinnon), sweeps in from college to save the day when things get in a pickle. Throw in a buzzard-loping, circus-loving friend, Jeffery Cole (or Trevor Foster), who also happens to be a preacher’s kid and a couple just grateful to see the preacher (Mason Folsom and Christina Dowell) and laughter will ensue.
Join the juniors of Corn Bible Academy as they present Papa Was a Preacher on March 5 at 1pm and March 6 at 1pm and 7pm. A Hawaiian Luau meal will be prepared by the senior class from 5-6:30pm on March 6.
