Clyde needs no props other than a sound track that is used at very appropriate times, he dressed in the garb of a bibical period fisherman and told the story of Peter and his relationship with Jesus. He was deliberate, honest and clear in his interpretation and it left those of us in attendance feeling that we had been there when Christ walked on this earth.
Some of you may recall a blog I wrote some time ago about the performance by Dean Jones as St. John the Divine In Exile, a similar one many play which is now available via Netflix. Well, the performance by Clyde as Peter was every bit as good. He brought him to life as the burly, sometimes coarse man that he was while also displaying his awe and wonder at the experiences he had with Christ.
Clyde has been doing such performances for years. They are his mission in life; all he asks for is travel and hotel expenses and a love offering for his efforts. I would suggest that in any community a group of churches should get together and jointly sponsor a visit. He's from Atlanta, and he and his wife came to our little country Methodist Church as part of his travels in our neck of the woods. And his performance left us spellbound for awhile. You could actually hear a pin drop at the conclusion of the show; it was that powerful.
Check him out at ClydeAnnandaleChristianDrama.com. The site gives contact points and a press release. He is prepared to do any one of fifty-four characters before an audience and they are done with such realism that you will truly be moved. He even presented a presented a portrayal of King David in person before Benjamin Netanyahu during time spent in Israel. A world traveler and devout man, he should be a must for any Christian group to see and hear.
God bless you, Clyde, and thanks for providing such a wonderful mission for a world that is so in need of hearing it. You have a gift that offers a great way to open the hearts and minds of people who need a special talent to be brought to bear on them. And you, Sir, are the real deal.
The Lord works in many different ways. Clyde Annandale is certainly a special one.
