THE JOURNEY – “The Journey,” an original Gospel stage play by Southeastern Louisiana University student Tiffane Henry, will be staged April 24-26 at the Wesley Foundation in Hammond.

HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University Gospel Choir is inviting the campus and community to an encore performance of “The Journey.”

     The original Gospel stage play, created and directed by Student Government Association entertainment chair Tiffane “Suga” Henry in connection with last February's Black History Month, will be held at the Southeastern Wesley Foundation April 24-26 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door.

     “The Journey” tells the story of Yolanda, a young woman who struggles to find her direction in the world after the tragic death of her beloved brother, Henry said.

     “This unfortunate incident causes her to uproot from Brooklyn, the only place she's known, and move to North Carolina with her estranged aunt,” she explained. “While in North Carolina, Yolanda continues to distance herself from her aunt who struggles to connect to her niece and help her grieve. As time passes, Yolanda encounters an array of whimsical and interesting characters that aid her as she embarks upon life's ever-winding journey.”

     Enthusiastically received during its debut, “The Journey” combines “humor, music and acting to present a story that the audience will never forget," Henry said. "This play is a journey that anyone and everyone can identify with, because in life everyone is faced with a decision that can drastically alter one’s path in a positive or negative manner."
