Easter Laughs: An Easter Entertainment Package of Music, Dance, Drama and Hilarious Jokes Presented at the Gloryland Cultural Centre by the Bayelsa State Council for Arts and Culture Indeed, the passion in God’s love for our souls cannot be overemphasized as underscored in the agony of Christ.
Usually, Christians feel more at a cross between the sobriety associated with the role man played in God’s order in Easter and the leverage accompanying the redemption power. The Bayelsa State Council for Arts and Culture frantically packaged Easter Laughs, properly taking into cognizance the afore-stated psychological mix experienced by mankind from the significance of Easter.
The performances on Saturday the 3rd and Sunday the 4th of April, 2010 at the Gloryland Cultural Centre depicted God’s love, mercy, grace and supremacy and the need for man to exhibit same in our relationships.
More so, it was an entertainment that took the audience away from their normal homes to a social platform for individuals and families.
Dance drama, music, native chorals, as well hilarious jokes lit these two evenings, from 7.00pm thrilling the audience which intermittently applauded the exciting moments of: The Bag, Alapuseki, Piss-Piss, Ekegene, Impu, Great Wedding, Palace Blues, Unlimited Love and The Cannibals.
Even a cannibal tribe was humbled by God’s supremacy when a minister of God whom they had captured for a meal revived their dead child through the name of Jesus Christ (where their revered traditional healer failed), leading them to accept God and admitting the minister to their family in The Cannibals. The Head of Performing Arts Division, Mrs. Festus-Lukoh Payeboye in her remark to end the show, expressed fulfillment on the part of Council having refreshed the audience with the performances.
The Executive Director, Mr. Dudafa Ineye Johnny who put the Easter package together as an entertainment for residents of Yenagoa during the Easter assured the audience of regular monthly shows at the Gloryland Cultural Centre. Chief Vianana Victor who came all the way from Kaiama, headquarters of Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area said at the end of the show that it is a delightful experience to note that theatre entertainment is gradually coming to stay in Yenagoa.
