Urban theatre enthusiasts around the world are all abuzz about the highly anticipated tour of Church Girl. This no holds barred musical stage play, based on a true story, was written and produced by Angela Barrow-Dunlap and directed by Reuben Yabuku. The play and all-star cast arrive in Toronto August 12- 13, 2011, at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts (formerly The Hummingbird Centre) located at 1 Front St East @ Yonge.

Church Girl tells the true story of Emily Franklin, the seemingly wholesome daughter of a prominent pastor, who is seduced by the charms of a worldly life. Emily is hiding a very shocking secret and like all things evil, it is festering. Emily has been working diligently to cover up the dark choices she has made, but when her secret is exposed, events take a dramatic turn and skeletons coming crashing out of her closet. Everyone wants to know what could push a quintessential church girl to turn her back on everything good she has been taught.

National playwright and producer, Angela Barrow-Dunlap, is no stranger to the theatre world. As the creator of such hit stage plays as If These Hips Could Talk, My Brother Marvin as well as one of the highest grossing urban stage plays of all time, Why Good Girls Like Bad Boyz, fans of her work have come to appreciate her storytelling methodology. "This is much more than just another production to me," says Barrow-Dunlap. "There is power and purpose in this piece, mainly because it was born out of the true story of someone very dear and close to me. But also because it will touch the hearts of so many hurting women. Women around the country are responding to the message of Church Girl because it resonates so powerfully within them...it's their story. Most every woman has at some point in her life given in to temptation, and as a result felt trapped. Church Girl simply says that you can choose to be free."

Angela Barrow-Dunlap's new musical, Church Girl, brings together some of the film, television and music world's hottest stars on one stage for one unforgettable production. Leading the cadre of characters is one of Hollywood's most sought after actresses, Robin Givens, R&B soul-singer/songwriter A'ngela Winbush; actress Demetria McKinney from the NAACP Image Award-winning television series House of Payne; actor Clifton Powell from the Friday movies, Ray and Norbit; and Tony Grant from Tyler Perry's The Marriage Counsellor. The show also features play circuit powerhouses and theatre veterans Wanda Nero-Butler, Gia Wyre and Teisha Lott.
So Toronto get ready for the smash hit of summer 2011. Church Girl is more than a stage play; it is a life changing experience! The story takes you on a visual, musical and emotional journey that will make you laugh, cry and dance in the aisles at the Sony Centre.
