Ropha Productions Presents the Gospel of Matthew
by Charissa Veal
CLEVELAND, Ga., (TMNews) – Chris Britt of Ropha Productions presented a moving recitation of the last three chapters of the Gospel of Matthew during Truett-McConnell College's chapel on February 19th.
Quoting Matthew chapters 26-28 from memory, Britt used his acting skills to change voices and choreograph movements which coincide with the words of the story; the audience listened in overwhelming silence as he spoke and acted out the scenes. Britt used only three props: a stool, a chest, and a ladder, and finished his verse-by-verse demonstration with the Great Commission.
