Oh My God! It’s The Church
It’s time all you sinners went back to church. To a service where party is the new praising, where you’ll be baptised in absinthe and made to dance with the devil himself. Hell, even Jesus get’s down and dirty at this show!
‘The Church’ is a raucous interactive party experience and parody of a Deep South Pentecostal church brimming with the best soul, blues and disco tunes. Fronted by the insane pastor ‘Michael Alabama Jackson’ the service leads the audience through a sermon of serious partying. Since it’s premiere in May 2013 the show has lit up stages at numerous festivals including The Secret Garden Party, Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival and the Edinburgh Fringe and looks set to continue it’s Divine Mission in 2015 and beyond, picking up followers and converts at every show. Think Sister Act on speed!
Fusing music, dance, theatre and comedy the show comprises of one preacher, three choirgirls and an organ player who create an all-‐encompassing Pentecostal parody party experience that engages the audience from the very first hymn.
Come and kiss the ring of redemption, get ready to Sin, be saved and then Sin all over again in this holy and hilarious hootenanny.
Reverend Michael Alabama Jackson and DJ Sister Mary Lou can also be found on Soho Radio hosting ‘Salvation Radio’ every Sunday from 1pm alongside entertainment legends The Cuban Brothers, Norman Jay MBE and Son of Dave.
