Cheri Johnson (Lead)

A pregnant, clinical psychologist in her third trimester. She is a witty, intelligent, southern woman, and a force not to be reckoned with. She will stand by her husband’s side at all costs. As her husband is devoted to her, she is indebted and devoted to him. Once a waitress, she worked and helped her husband, J.E., go to and finish college, who then entered work and helped her go and finish her undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. Like her husband, she has a low tolerance for dishonesty or deception. Her greatest fear is to hold back her husband from being the man that she knows he is destined to be. Her greatest love is preparing and serving unique, intimate meals for any and everyone who will sit at her table and enjoys just sitting, eating, and chatting.

Project Details

Short Synopsis:  Roll On! is a musical about family and faith, and what happens when trust is lost or broken. It tells the story of a teenage boy who wants to become pastor of his family’s church, but life’s cares and family secrets choke his goal. Along the way, he meets and falls in love with the woman of his childhood dreams, recalls that true love forgives, and learns that forgiveness empowers, enabling him to move on and fulfill his destiny. While there are many references to the Gospel, Roll On! is not didactic but a play that triumphantly reveals many heartfelt, universal themes. With no “DIVAS” written into the script, it is an ensemble piece in which each character’s arc yields importance to the story. The play spans a total of 25 years. Actors must convincingly play a broad range of ages. Post reading plans and future opportunities for the cast include a touring show to be initiated in November, following the October 2022 DMV opening launch.
