Sanctified by Javon Johnson

Newberry Opera House

Sanctified is a lively, entertaining musical, kept afloat by the strength of playwright Javon Johnson’s well-crafted characters, a great cast of amazing singers, updated arrangements of traditional church songs, and some nicely done original tunes by composer Rollo A. Dilworth and musical director Raymond D. Reeder.  Sanctified is a musical comedy that pokes fun at the comical characters and peculiar personalities all choir members must sometimes endure in trying to sing praises to the Lord.  It will have you roaring with laughter. You might recognize Javon from BET’s “The Oval,” where he plays Richard Hallsen.

Note: Sanctified is a collaboration with Newberry College for Dufford Diversity Week and underwritten by Dr. Bill Dufford
