Another Setback for April Marcell

April Marcell
April (Drummond) Marcell's string of tough luck continues. My buddy who has overcome so much over the years was excited beyond words that her new play "God's Eye," a look at religious hipocrisy, was going to open before a hometown audience this weekend at the Roanoke Civic Center. Low ticket sales, however, have caused its cancellation.

April, who started college at Hollins at the age of 40 a few years ago and finished last spring with a degree in theater, has had several unfortunate events occur recently. A few months ago, as she was preparing "God's Eye" for its opening in Norfolk, her house burned down. The producers moved the premier to Roanoke in order to accommodate her living situation.

April, who has seven children, hopes to open the show after the first of the year in Norfolk. Let's take her suggestion and say a little prayer for her.
