Clyde Annandale to perform ‘David and Goliath’ at Circle Drive Baptist Church
Director, producer and performer Clyde Annandale will be with the Circle Drive Baptist Church, 100 Circle Drive Bridge City on Sunday morning November 6th. Annandale is from the Atlanta Georgia area, and for 28 years he has masterfully portrayed 52 distinct characters ranging from his well-known one-eyed seaman in Horses to Jesus in The Upper Room. His work has taken him far and wide, including performances at many Southern Baptist Conventions. He has even performed as King David for the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyauh during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the statehood of Israel.
Clyde has also portrayed Jesus before the Mayor of Jerusalem and five thousand of his friends in the Jerusalem Convention Center.
From 1998-2001 Annandale lived in Israel to research and write his plays. Sometimes this was done on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, while other times it was done in the cafes in Jerusalem. His desire was to recapture the raw power of the life of Jesus and to make the scripts as entertaining and historically accurate.
At 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 6, Clyde will be doing a presentation of David and Goliath. This portrayal will be not only be inspirational but it will also be humorous. The story will include a real 50 pound sword, taken from Goliath. Those in attendance will learn some things that have never been taught by any preacher or Bible teacher.
It has been said that “Clyde Annandale offers a lively and engaging presentation of the scriptures. His dramas demand a thought provoking response. You will laugh and you may cry, but you will be changed.”
It is a privilege for Circle Drive Baptist Church, located at 100 Circle Drive, Bridge City to host such a performer that makes the Bible come to life. For more information or directions to the church, please call the church at 735-4819
