Three Kings discover the story of ‘Amahl,’ playing at The Prizery

South Boston News

The night visitors in “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” playing on The Prizery stage this week, are the three Kings, Kaspar, Melchoir and Baltazar. These are the three kings that travel from the east seeking the child, the Christ child.

As they journey following the star, they seek out shelter from the cold snowy night and and place to sleep. They are led to the small house of a widow and her crippled son Amahl. What happens during their stay is transformative to all concerned.

Andre Williamson sings the bass role of Baltazar. Andre recently moved to South Boston from Buffalo New York to pastor Ebenezer CME church in South Boston. He is also the new choral director for the Halifax County High School. Andre’s classically trained rich bass voice adds a great musical quality to the show. The Prizery is honored to have join the cast of Amahl.

No strangers to The Prizery stage are Richard Grendahl and Christopher Baker. Richard sings the role of Kaspar, the parrot touting, half deaf king. Richard appeared in last Christmas’ “A Christmas Carol” as the spirit of Christmas present. Richard’s son appears and a dancer in the show.

Returning from Summer Theatre is Christopher Baker. Chris is a classically trained bass and sings the role of Melchoir. This makes the third production of Amahl that Chris has performed in.

“Amahl and the Night Visitors” opens Thursday night and runs through Sunday, with shows Dec. 13-14 at 7:30 p.m and Dec. 15-16 at 3 p.m. Call The Prizery box-office for tickets 434-572-8339 or purchase online at http://www.prizery.com.
