Cast Presenting Gospel Through Drama


The Cast is focusing on things that should be left behind in its 2014 program. That is this year’s theme for the group, which is the creative ministry team of Williams Baptist College.

"Growing as Christians means there are some harmful things that need to be discarded. It may be selfishness or anxiety or sin or any number of painful issues in our lives. Our program is intended to help us get rid of those things," says Melinda Williams, who heads the theatre department at WBC.


Williams and Brett Cooper, vice president for institutional advancement at the college, are co-directors of The Cast.

The Cast for 2013-14 is composed of nine WBC students who auditioned for the group at the start of the school year. Most of the fall semester is spent preparing the program, and the team travels to performances during the spring semester.
