But instead, those ingredients combine to encapsulate an intriguing period in Biblical history, as retold by Romes African American Connection of the Performing Arts.
On Sunday, the group brings to the Rome City Auditorium a fascinating look at the life of King David, in what they hope will be an entertaining and uplifting performance for all Rome residents.
Fill Your Brother's Cup: Lord Let It Overflow," according to event publicist Rosemary Ringer, is the dramatic vision of Roman Willie Mae Samuel and explores the period in King Davids life when he was stalked by King Saul, escaped being killed and was designated by God to retrieve the Ark of the Covenant.
"It's going to be very entertaining, but it's also very poignant for those who believe in God," Ringer said. "We've all had situations in life where were being chased down by certain issues. Well this event is a chance to see a breakthrough, to get over those issues that have haunted us."
Ringer said the performance features an all-star cast of sorts. Several members of Rome's religious communities will be stepping away from the pulpit and stepping up to their roles as Biblical figures.
The Rev. Carey Ingram of Lovejoy Baptist Church takes on the role of the benevolent and powerful King David while Ingram's wife, Judy plays one of Davids wives.
Thankful Baptist's pastor, the Rev. Nim Russell plays Gad, the leader of one of the 12 Tribes of Israel, while Pentecostal Assemblies of the World's Bishop Nealon Guthrie makes a convincing Joseph.
"That's what's so beautiful about this event," Ringer said. "It's such a unique occasion when all of these churches are coming together and uniting for a single cause. All those who believe in God have this opportunity to come together."
The performance will be accompanied by prayer and praise for an evening Ringer promises will be fun and interactive, as all guests are encouraged to participate in the performance.
