Jacksonville, FL ( — 4-time Grammy nominee Melba Moore stars in Darryl Reuben Hall’s FRAT HOUSE at the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival October 4-5. Melba Moore, who won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Purlie, will play the role of President Johns in this Gospel musical spin on the Parable of the Prodigal Son.

Thomas, the son of a pastor, leaves home to attend college and pledges a fraternity against his father’s advice. Celebrating the richness of African-American college life and the traditions of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Darryl Reuben Hall’s FRAT HOUSE brings college life to the stage in this family oriented raucous comedy that explores the bond between brothers – their joys, triumphs, pain, and sorrow!

CRITICS LOVE FRAT HOUSE: “Impressively choreographed, energetic, and lots of fun. And the concluding gospel finale that followed brought down the house,” says Entertaining U/ Alun Montgomery

FRAT HOUSE will perform: Friday, October 4 at 10pm. and Saturday, October 5 at 2pm at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center 3181 Rainbow Drive in historic Decatur, GA. Admission: $20.
