Father, Son Team To Perform Benefit For Youth Center

Tommy and John Thomas Oaks will be in Memphis October 11th and 12th to entertain and help open the Youth Center. These events are open to the community.

Tommy has the distinction to be the first person to graduate from East Tennessee State University with a Masters degree in Storytelling! He also graduated from Johnson Bible College (BA), Emmanuel School of Religion (MA), and University of Tennessee (PhD). He has been preaching over 40 years. As a storyteller, he has been involved in civic groups, storytelling festivals, school systems, and bed and breakfast inns. His favorite audience has been his own children.

John Thomas, one of his sons, is pursuing a career as a musical theatre composer and lyricist. He has over 16 musicals in which he was involved.

Wednesday, Oct 11th, at 7:00 p.m., they will be at the Youth Center (just off the southeast corner of the square), to have an evening of interaction with young people (or older ones)! On Thursday, October 12th, at 7:00 p.m., there will be a presentation of Star Queen at the Memphis Theatre, with a pre-show Benefit Supper (5:30 p.m.), as a fundraiser at the Youth Center. The musical is one for which John Thomas has written the music and lyrics. It is the story of Queen Esther, a young Jewish queen in ancient Persia, who saves her entire race from an evil genocide plot by a wicked tyrant. This is the basis for the Jewish holiday of Purim.

A freewill offering will be collected to help raise funds for the Youth Centers completion.
