Cast of Characters
JOHN: The Choir director.
BARBARA: A lovely woman with a particular soft elegance.
HANK: A frail man with a large, pleasing presence that whispers out through his dark, deep-set eyes and sculptured face.
SONDRA: A very plain woman with a clean, scrubbed look about her, almost sterile except for loosely styled strawberry blonde hair that falls at will.
AGNES: As the eldest member of the choir, Agnes uses her age as a lever to balance things her way.
LUANN: A tall, think, beautiful treasure of a girl in her mid-twenties.
JOSEPH: A serene little man with a tender smile and large white teeth adorned with a thin moustache.
AL: A very handsome pan in his mid-thirties, full of life and excitement. He has the demeanor of a movie star and knows the power of his charm.
TINA: Equally as attractive as Al and about the same age.
Choir Practice examines the synthesis of man's spiritual dimension by weaving together the lives of its seven loveless and lost seekers. So caught up in the frustration of their own lives, they are forced to focus on the intensity of the moment for their beloved director, John who becomes suspended in time and space when they investigate the apparent miracle happening in their church. The threat of impending doom, combined with their inability to determine what really is happening as they witness a transfiguration of the painting of the Ark of the Covenant, effectively forces each character to come to terms with the truth of their own existence. Hank, the spiritual mentor of the group, is sated by the renewed happiness of his peers. Joseph, already venturing his quest for peace, also enjoys the overflowing grace of this rapport as he sees all transformed from self-centered individuals to a tender community. The effect of the whole encounter filters out a myriad portrayal of the human experience. Once the protective coating of personality is scraped off, we can more easily perceive lov - the flow of life that bubbles beneath the surface of everyone... Thus, we ascertain that when the diamond in us is allowed to shine without human intervention, the results can be quite brilliant.
