The drama portions are written and directed by Brian Down who will be joined on stage by a group of high school students.  The script is pieced together from letters, journals and newspaper stories written by those who witnessed the revival.

The music is under the direction of Alana Johnson, one of the music teachers at CRCS.  She will be leading small groups in singing some of the hymns that influenced and grew out of that great movement.

Bend Us Lord: Stories and Songs of the Great Welsh Revival will be presented one night only, Wednesday, June 13, 7 p.m. at the Baptist Church, 260 South Dogwood Street.
