Fans of Jesus Christ Superstar will enjoy The Grove Theatre's original musical production The Kingdom, a contemporary rock 'n' roll take on the Passion of Jesus Christ. Through dramatic storytelling, dynamic modern music, authentic costumes and realistic sets, this gritty retelling of the greatest story ever told brings to musical life the last week of Jesus of Nazareth. Although The Kingdom chronicles the story of Christ's trial and crucifixion, it's an ultimately uplifting tale that focuses on love, hope and human compassion. Learn More

This was a wonderful production. I took my fourteen year old daughter to see it and we both enjoyed it thoroughly. It is nice to have such a high caliber cast perform locally and I am definitely tempted to see it again. Kellita Smith is a fantastic leading lady and it was pleasing to see her as one. I must say, however, that Esther Scott steals the show as most matriarchs in black families do. This is one event packed with all the good (and bad) things in life that makes living it so delicious. I highly recommend this play.
In One Woman Two Lives the strikingly beautiful Kellita Smith portrays Samantha Cooke, a complex and conflicted woman fighting to sustain and protect her family from a past that threatens to undermine her almost perfect present. Married to Jonathan, a successful mega preacher, portrayed by an equally talented Keith Bossier (The Young and the Restless), Samantha has been voted First Lady of the Year. However, the accolade causes the mother of three to doubt herself. In spite of receiving encouragement from her family and neighbors, Samantha can’t seem to shake the uneasiness that has begun to envelop her. As the play takes on surprising and startling twists and turns, her doubts and worries unfortunately become warranted.
Three time NAACP Best Director Image Award recipient Denise Dowse elicits beautiful and memorable performances from this ensemble cast which also stars veteran and award winning actors Esther Scott (You Got Served, Dreamgirls, The Geena Davis Show_) who plays the outspoken mother-in-law Edna and Billy Mayo (_Desperate Housewives, The Traveler) who plays a deliciously duplicitous Melvin Foster, along with neighbors Michael and Belinda Grey portrayed by Sammie Wayne and Sharon Munfus.
