April Marcell Back With Another Play in November

April Marcell
April Marcell is back at it, this time with her play “God’s Eye,” which will be presented at the Roanoke Civic Center, Saturday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m.

April says, “This play is about the ugly reality of Christian leaders who are not living what they preach, but are finding themselves in a position to make a decision to get it right or to continue doing wrong. 'God’s Eye’ reveals the face of hypocrisy and the effects it has on everyone, and how important it is to be true to yourself, regardless of the cost.”

April is CEO and founder of Gaga Productions, producer, director, playwright, filmmaker with over 50 productions of plays, musicals, concerts, film and staged readings, They include “Black Cathy,” a film officially selected for the San Diego Black Film Festival, “When Life Knocks You Down” and “The Way To A Man’s Heart.”

April has received The Nicole Kohn Film Award; the Evelyn Bradshaw Award for Excellence and the Pinnacle Award.

She has conducted workshops and classes for theater and film, one being for the Roanoke Regional Writer’s Conference for a class on Structuring Your Play.

“God’s Eye” will feature guest star VirLinda Stanton from Disney’s “Lion King” and Oprah Winfrey’s “Color Purple” as Judge Elizabeth Barnes. April will play Mother Straightway, Michael LeMelle is Minister Jones and Farrah Johnson is Hope Evans. Several of April’s seven children will be in the production.
