Here's yet another one of those inspirational-stage-plays-aimed-at-the-black-market heading straight for DVD release. This time it's Church Girl the popular and successful musical play which toured across the country last year. It's written and produced by Angela Barrow Dunlap who calls herself "The Leading Lady of Urban Theatre," which means it's only a matter of time before she starts making movies too.

Church Girl

Here's yet another one of those inspirational-stage-plays-aimed-at-the-black-market heading straight for DVD release. This time it's Church Girl the popular and successful musical play which toured across the country last year. It's written and produced by Angela Barrow Dunlap who calls herself "The Leading Lady of Urban Theatre," which means it's only a matter of time before she starts making movies too. 

Robin Givens stars as the "villain" or Evil B, who, no doubt, begs for repetance by the end of the play. Ms Givens has been making herself a career of late appearing in these types of plays perhaps to atone for her wicked, wicked ways years ago (Mike still hasn't recovered)

The play deals with Emily "the daughter of a prominent Pastor, seems to have it all, a great family, a wonderful love interest and is a role model in her father's church. But things aren’t always what they seem. She is hiding a very shocking secret and has been working overtime to cover it up while maintaining her good girl image. When her worlds collide, events take a drastic turn, secrets are exposed and skeletons come crashing out of the closet. As young women across the nation continue to compromise their bodies and barter their very souls, this hard-hitting stage play dares to answer the question so many have asked, “what would make a well-rooted church girl trade in her choir robe for a g-string?”

Indeed what would? The DVD comes out on January 31st 2012 from Entertainment One.

I need to start checking out these videos out myself.

I couldn't find any clips from the play, but here Ms. Givens in a brief interview discussing it:
