See Chonda Pierce and John Schneider in The Confession musical movie, coming to movie theaters for one night only: Monday, February 20. The story, based on the #1 selling book by Beverly Lewis, is going from the big stage to the big screen!
Reminding us of the parable of the Lost Sheep (Luke 15:4), the movie is based on the multi-million selling book series written by Beverly Lewis and written for the stage by Emmy-nominated screenwriter Martha Bolton. The Confession tells the story of an Amish family in turmoil when their daughter, Katie Lapp, discovers she was adopted by an Englisher (not Amish) woman.
Meanwhile, the woman, Laura Mayfield, heir to a vast fortune and on her deathbed, is searching for her lost daughter to bequest her the estate. Standing between her is her gold-digging husband, Dylan (played by John Schneider), who is plotting to claim the fortune for himself with the help of a hired imposter pretending to be the long-lost daughter.
While the story is dramatic, writer Martha Bolton sprinkles in humor, mostly from award-winning comedian Chonda Pierce as the maid and internationally renowned British comedian Colin Alexander as the English Butler. The music is powerful under the direction of multiple Grammy-nominated Dan Posthuma and songwriter Wally Nason. And the screen is filled with spectacular visuals using twenty actors and dancers and one of the largest LED screens in the country.
