They recycled the Paul Drama from 1973 (4?)?? I was in that one. The "Demonized Girl" was my best friend. She called out after Paul:
"These men are slaves of the Most High God, and are publishing to you the way of salvation..." I'll never forget those lines, or mine either. We rehearsed three nights a week and the drama (at least that version) was over 2 hours long. We aged Paul by spraying his hair with more and more gray as the drama went on.
Stephen's speech just before he was stoned was one of the longest and the brother who had to memorize it wasn't all that bright. It took him months to learn the part.
BTW, I played Eunice - young Timothy's mother. My "husband" was a Greek, so I got to wear a somewhat sexy outfit with lots of jewelry.
I can't believe they can't come up with something original.
