Description

Previously featured at the West Angeles Performing Arts Theatre and The Grove Theatre in Los Angeles, Let’s Talk Church focuses on the problems and issues that take place in the church. The setting takes place in a Hollywood studio as a “live” taping. Yes, Oprah has gone off the air, and Mary “Liz” Paige is the new diva of talk shows. She cleans, sings, directs, and acts. After the opening monologue, various guests are interviewed, including Dr. O. Phila (Physiologist), Deacon Delicious, Ms. Schizo, Rejocekia (played by 1st Lady Elizabeth Rhone), The Lark Sisters (played by the McGuire sisters – they think they can sing, but can’t), and the CEO of The New Church Channels (has spiritual turret syndrome).

The final scene features the cast singing a medley of Christmas Carols.
