Christian dramatist Tom Key to perform at BPC on Feb. 3

MOUNT VERNON -- Brewton-Parker College continues its Centennial Celebration with a special performance by stage and screen star Tom Key on Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 8 p.m. in Gates Auditorium.

Key, one of this country's top Christian dramatists, is best known for his award-winning performances from off-Broadway to Los Angeles, as well as record-breaking runs in Atlanta and Dallas, of the celebrated musical "Cotton Patch Gospel," which he conceived and co-authored with the late singer-songwriter Harry Chapin.

Key's performance is titled "Murder, Sex, Power, Love, Apocalypse, Money, Jesus, Shakespeare, Angels, Miracles, Baseball, Robert Frost, Nature, Time, Chicago and Georgia," featuring high-energy dramatic excerpts from "Cotton Patch Gospel," "Stand Up Poetry" and "The Revelation of John."

"I'm very excited about coming to Brewton-Parker and being a part of this year of honoring the history of the college," Key said. "This show will contain something for everybody, so please come out and join me."

Key's one-man play, "C.S. Lewis On Stage," has been presented across the United States and Canada, including a production at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and a production at Oxford University in England.

Key's film and television appearances include "In the Heat of the Night," "I'll Fly Away" and "Following Her Heart" with Ann-Margaret.

Key is the producing artistic director of the Theatrical Outfit in Atlanta. When he returns to Atlanta, he will begin rehearsals for an original play at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta on Faith.
