Casting Call


Based on the Azusa Street Revival

By Robin Capers


They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire…”—Acts 2:3


Premise: A penniless preacher and his small prayer group spark a supernatural awakening in a Los Angeles community that ignites a worldwide movement.

Genre: Historical Drama

Original Stage Play: It’s something new, fresh, and exciting involving audience participation and eliciting supernatural response

Purpose of Creative Work: To provoke spiritual awakening by the power of the Holy Spirit

Related Scripture Verse:I will show you my faith by my works.”—NKJV, James 2.18

Ultimate Objective: To produce this play in major US and international cities

Testimonial: “What a marvelous choice of subject matter (faithfully rendered for the theatre): The Azusa Street Revival. . . . It will be interesting to see how God uses each live performance of this play. The stage allows us to share the special nature of ‘pretend’ in a way that is totally theatrical and perfectly matched to the work of the Holy Spirit.” —Professor Kevin Crawford, Regent University, MDiv, MFA, PhD

Occasion: The Azusa Street Revival (1906-1922) with relevant updates

Target Audience: Individuals from all ethnicities and walks of life who long to be touched by God, long for His Presence, and long to be enveloped by His Love
