Local play encourages unity in Chattanooga

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Getting people involved can change their lives. The Salvation Army is hoping to do just that, by reaching Chattanooga's homeless population through the arts.

We're talking about a play, one where homeless people and those who are not work together for a common goal.

But it's about more than the roles each of them takes on. It's about a since of purpose and treating others with respect.

Professors from UTC and Covenant College teamed up with the Salvation Army's ReCreate Café to put on Godspell.

Captain Jon- Phil Winter coordinates the Salvation Army's homeless program and says the production not only provides the opportunity for creativity, it allows the homeless to feel like they belong to the community.

"I really hope that the homeless population we serve not just through this, but everything we do, can see the worth that is in them that is innate as being children of God," says Captain Winter.

Opening night and Saturday's shows are sold out.

Godspell will continue through Tuesday, with a special matinee Sunday.
