Ebenezer Scrooge

Premiered November 18, 2001, at New Hebron Baptist Church in Concord, GA.  It is an exciting and inspiring romp through Dickens' classic tale.  Two dozen characters come to life under the expertise of Penn as the miserly Scrooge.  A must for every pulpit!  Length of drama: 75 minutes.

Excerpt from20th anniversary show.

 

 

 

 

Ludwig van Beethoven

Premiered April 23, 2002 at R. E. Lee Auditorium in Thomaston.  Beethoven was inspired by Shakespeare, one of 54 scholars chosen by King James to revise the Bible.  Abused as a child, Beethoven expressed his pain in his music to bless mankind for all eternity.  The research correlating sonatas inspired by sonnets was done  for a 1976 college English report.  Length of drama: 45 minutes.  Excerpt from20th anniversary show.

 

 

 

 Admiral William Penn

Premiered November 16, 2003 at New Hebron.  William Penn, Dwain's distant cousin  and founder of Pennsylvania, was, like Apostle Paul, imprisoned for religious reasons.  He did most of his writings while incarcerated.  Wm. Penn's message of religious freedom still inspires our democracy today.  Length of drama: 45 min.  Excerpt from20th anniversary show.

 

 

Winston Churchill

Premiered November 18, 2005 at New Hebron.  Churchill, known as the Lion of Britain, was lauded internationally as a great leader who redeemed England and Europe from Nazi domination during World War II.  His tenacious determination was summed up in five simple words: “Never, never, never give up!”  Churchill did not consider himself a pillar of the church, but rather a flying buttress – he supported the church from the outside.  Length of drama: 75 minutes.  Excerpt from20th anniversary show.

 

 

Martin Luther

Premiered November 16, 2007 at New Hebron Baptist Church.  Luther sparked the Reformation, which ended the millennial age known as the Dark Ages by taking the Word of God from the priests and giving it back to the people.  His 95 Theses nailed to the church door at Wittenberg, Germany, challenged the practices of the Roman Catholic Church and helped to develop church customs still observed today by most of the Protestant faith.  Luther is responsible for starting the customs of religious education of church members, congregational singing and even the decoration of a tree at Christmas.  Length or drama: 45 minutes.

 R. E. Lee

Premiered November 14, 2009 at New Hebron Baptist Church.  Lee was a portrayal Penn stumbled on quite by accident.  Following his 20th anniversary show in June 2008, Penn shaved his head and went six months without shaving his beard.  By December he noted how much he looked like Lee.  Robert Edward Lee, son of Revolutionary War hero Harry Lee was asked to lead the northern army but refused.  He offered his services to newly elected Confederate president Jefferson Davis and changed the course of the CSA.  After much prayer, Lee surrendered to Grant on April 9. 1865, prompted by the capture of his son at Saylor's Creek on April 6.  After the war, Lee's prestige changed the rebellious image of the south.
