In memory of Jessie Elizabeth Murray

Posted on Updated on

Carol - JessieIt is with the heaviest heart that Southern Coalition for the Arts says goodbye to one of our own.

Jessie Elizabeth Murray was a one of a kind. She was a genuine person with the sweetest soul. God placed Jessie in our lives to teach us how to love unconditionally and to show us what a friend is supposed to be — and for that we are most grateful. Jessie dedicated her life to God, Family, Friends, and Theatre. In her mother’s words: “She lived and breathed it.”

Our theatre family is hurting, but we have come together and as Jessie would have wanted — we are growing closer and stronger. We will strive to live up to the standard Jessie has set and we will strive to ensure that her legacy lives on. We are set to Open BIG FISH the Musical this Friday (May 29th) and following her family’s wishes – -“the show will go on, for Jessie.”

Please pray for us as we struggle to fill the voids, as Jessie took on several major responsibilities for our shows, including acting. But more than that, pray for us as we deal with the irreplaceable void in our hearts, as Jessie played a major part in most of our lives.

Jessie was a dedicated Board Member of the ARTS, a talented actor, and the truest friend. But as the Lyrics are written in the show BIG FISH, we “know exactly how it ends.” “It ends with Faith. It ends with Love.” We love you Jessie, we miss you terribly, and we thank God for giving you to us for as long as He did.

Smoke on the Mountain Tickets on Sale March 2nd!

Smoke on the Mountain Live

Smoke on the Mountain tickets go on sale to the general public on March 2nd at 9:00 a.m..  Purchase your tickets by calling our box office at 304-785-0547.  This hilarious GOSPEL MUSICAL COMEDY tells the story of the Sanders Family Singers, who are back on the gospel circuit after a 5 year hiatus.  Set in 1938, during a Saturday Night Gospel Sing, Pastor Oglethorpe, the young and enthusiastic minister of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, has enlisted the Sanders Family in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into “the modern world.” Between songs, each family member “witnesses” — telling a story about an important event in their life. Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of a congregation who wants to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry and they reveal their true — and hilariously imperfect – natures. By the evening’s end, the Sanders Family have endeared themselves to us by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs.
