Roane State Community College is bringing back the 2001 cast for a performance of the musical “Cotton Patch Gospel.”
The show, based on the book The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John by Clarence Jordan, features Jesus, who is born in Gainesville, Ga., in an abandoned trailer behind a motel and grows up in Valdosta.
In the musical, Herod is a jealous mayor of Atlanta and the Sermon on the Mount is given on Stone Mountain.
And in the bitter end, Jesus is lynched by local thugs.
