Two Great Shows... One Unforgettable Experience!


Shows Canceled This Weekend Due To Weather

By | Chip's Blog | No Comments

We have a forecast of more snow, rain, and ice, with temperatures never rising above freezing this weekend. As bad as we hate to do it, we’ve decided to cancel both the Friday and Saturday shows. We’re on the phone now, calling the folks who had planned to attend.

Things like this happen, and all we can do is trust that the Lord will bring lots of people next week to make up for the loss. Joey Hallelujah! God Loves America! is is such a fun show, with a truly important and ministering message. On top of that, according to last week’s audience, this may be the Ragtown Gospel Band’s best show yet!

I am especially proud of that, since four of the songs we’re doing are originals, and all of them are our unique arrangements. It is a pretty exciting time for the band, and we’re all loving doing these songs. I’m disappointed that we’re missing the opportunity to sing this weekend.

Please pray for beautiful weather and lots of people filling the seats after this weekend off. If you haven’t made your plans yet…next Friday night or Saturday afternoon would be a perfect time.

On another note, Robin and I received such a special blessing last Sunday at Bacon Heights Baptist Church in Lubbock. Chris Smith, who portrayed Jesus in our recent production of Bethlehem, sang “I Heard Jesus” during both morning services. That was the first time I had ever been in attendance when one of my songs was performed in a church service. Chris did such a beautiful job on the song, but more than that, everyone there was touched by that extraordinarily gifted young man’s gentle, loving heart. I was and am just so thankful and honored that the Lord allowed me to be the one to write that song. To see it presented so beautifully was just blessing upon blessing.

Everyone be safe driving, and as soon as it warms up….let’s go to Post!

"The show was so wonderful last Saturday that I’m bringing 12 plus myself from our church this Saturday. Only two of these ladies have been before to Ragtown. I always tell them once they have attended they will not want to miss a show after that. Thank you and all of the cast for sharing the wonderful talents God has given you with all of us."

"Wow! I enjoyed the whole experience of the play, music, beautiful theater and I hope you are there for many, many years. Everyone from our church was so thrilled, our bus sang all the way back to Lubbock. Thank you again for a wonderful night, and I plan to tell others and definitely come again."

"What a wonderful time we had last night at Ragtown Gospel Theater! God is so good! He has blessed your family with wonderful talent! To be able to entertain as well as spreading God’s word, and love what you are doing to boot, must be wonderful! Praise to our Lord and Savior! We will be back!"

− Joyce S., Idalou, TX

"I loved Joseph the Carpenter, the story was wonderful I loved the humor. A brilliant performance by the actors and lots of credit goes to the writer. Thank you Chip for using your singing and writing talent for the Lord. May God continue to bless Ragtown Theater and the Polk Families. "
