(Columbia, SC) – After a three-year hiatus, Walking on Water (WOW) Productions and their non-profit WOW Performing Arts Center (The PAC) are returning to treat the Capital City and surrounding areas with a professional, original stage play telling the story of a father left to raise a young daughter while her mother chases a dream. The award-winning theatre company debuts “The World You Left Behind” at the beautiful Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College with an all-star, all-local cast of actors from Friday, November 11th through Sunday, November 13, 2022. Each show will also showcase some of Columbia’s most talented artists providing pre-show entertainment – Andre DeLaine, Kayla Joy, and Regina Skeeters are a few scheduled to perform.
The pre-show will start 30 minutes before showtime. Tickets may be purchased at www.wowproduction.org or via phone at 803-407-5011.
Synopsis: Trusting people hasn’t come easy for SC Top Radio Personality, Brian Green, especially since the one person he loved the most, betrayed him. After 6 years of praying, he thinks that his prayers have finally been answered. However, not everyone is sharing in his excitement, especially not his 16-year-old daughter, Diamond. After some careful digging, Diamond has found out the true reason for this reunion. Now she has to decide if revealing the truth is worth the expense of breaking her father’s heart.
The World You Left Behind stars WOW company members Andre Dorsey, Elicia Moore, Arlene Pollock-Salley, Lachele “Shelly” Rodriguez, Rob Andrews, and Vanzell Haire; WOW youth actors D’yanna Daniels, Morgan Belton, Kristina Alderman, and Gabby Johnson; and newcomers Kyerrah Robinson, Knakea Robinson Macon, and Joshua Ballard. The show is appropriate for ages 8 and up and shares insight on faith, family, and love from the perspective of youth and adults.
WOW’s return to the main stage is one event audiences will not want to miss as the company strives to have them “screaming WOW from the door to the encore!” WOW returns to the Harbison stage for the first time since their play ‘Secrets in Plain Sight’ was canceled due to the COVID shutdown. The theatre company is coming back on the heels of the release of their now nationally distributed limited series, Secrets in Plain Sight (based upon the play of the same name), which is now available on TUBI.
