Directed by Wallace Bradsher. In partnership with the Roxboro Area Chamber of Commerce, Person County's deep gospel roots will be on display for this first show of its kind on the Kirby stage! Friday and Saturday nights will feature a stage presentation reminiscent of the kind of Gospel Homecoming shows on TV which bring together some of gospel's finest musicians and singers to present the best of the best in traditional and contemporary Christian music. Featuring local Person County gospel artists, "Can I Get an Amen!" will warm your heart and thrill your soul. Sunday's presentation is a true Person County Gospel Showcase extravaganza, with local choirs and ensembles scheduled throughout the afternoon and evening to present their very best to the Person County gospel-lovers' community. Join us for both parts of "Can I Get an Amen!" and let your spirit soar!

R.P. McMurphy is a criminal who gets himself committed to a mental hospital instead of jail because he thinks it's a lighter sentence. It doesn't take long for him to realize his mistake, however, when he runs afoul of the frighteningly sadistic Nurse Ratched, who runs the ward with an iron fist. But McMurphy takes over the yard, stages a revolt so the patients can watch the World Series, and arranges a rollicking midnight party. In the process, he teaches his fellow mental patients to stand on their own feet once again before events conspire to defeat him. This dark comedy is adapted from Ken Kesey's bestselling novel.
