Premise



In the spirit of the Prodigal Son, Preacher’s Kid tells the all too familiar story of a child who leaves home in search of all of the lusts of the world. Temptation leads to trials, tribulations, and ultimately repentance.

Angie King is a Preacher’s Kid, often referred to as PK. She is the beautiful and talented daughter of a well respected, loving, but overbearing Pastor in a small Southern town. Her secure, but sheltered upbringing leaves her naive to the ways of the world. Angie feels trapped and longs to see what she’s been missing.

Story



Angie King is a Preacher’s Kid, often referred to as PK. She is the beautiful and talented daughter of a well respected, loving, but overbearing Pastor in a small Southern town. Her secure, but sheltered upbringing leaves her naive to the ways of the world. Angie feels trapped and longs to see what she’s been missing.

A traveling, urban, musical stage play soon arrives to her town. Its cast includes has-been film and TV personalities, along with fading music artists. But through Angie’s star struck eyes, she sees her big break, and a way out. Against her fathers’ wishes, she leaves home to join the talented cast in a minor role, but is quickly seduced by the suave, womanizing star of the star. From there, she becomes caught in a whirlwind of dysfunction, abuse, and regret. Once again, she seems trapped. But love will free her, and bring her back home!

Music



All songs written and arranged by former Motown artist Tim Miner. They include from the original film: (now classics in the urban community) “Daddy Can I Come Back Home?”, “I’ll Take Good Care of Your Heart”, “Tonight’s The Night”, “Leaving Now”, “One Kiss”, “You Didn’t See Me” plus additional new music. All will leave audience singing along and cheering in the aisles.
