Rev. Charles Daniels (Lead)

He is pastor and founder of the church in which the play centers. He uses a cane as result of a stroke – a stroke he experienced prior to the passing of his wife and one that he deems as a merciful reminder of God’s judgment and a consequence for the sins of his youth. As a widower, he strives to laugh more, revere life, and make peace with his cane, his parishioners, and beloved friends. A simple wink from his eye tells many stories and reveals his true, kindhearted nature. He is a man who has learned the difference between sympathy and empathy. He can be touched by the infirmities of others; but he governs himself and the church that he oversees by its Holy Bible, bi-laws, and constitution.

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.
