Encore Theatre presents the "Greatest Story Ever Retold," based on the book "The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John" by Clarence Jordan. The Gospel is presented in a setting of rural Georgia with country music songs, the final and perhaps best work of Harry Chapin. As this Gospel begins, somethin's brewin' in Gainesville. Herod is the mayor of Atlanta and, inevitably, Christ is lynched by local thugs only to rise again.

Encore Theatre keeps Elizabeth City entertained with popular, fun, moving productions. They keep us coming back for more!
