THE STORY OF MRS. CROMLEY’S FAMOUS PEANUT CLUSTERS
(AND COOKBOOK).

During the Rocky Hock Playhouse Valentines dinner theatre show in 2002 Gloria Emmerich thought that the patrons might like to sample her secret “peanut cluster” recipe.  So, she whipped up a batch and served them up to the guests.  They were a HUGE HIT!  Folks came back for our Easter musical and wondered where the clusters were.  It was then that the idea to produce the clusters in quantity came to Gloria.  Why not box them properly and make the clusters available to all the theatre guests?! 

Ah, but where does Mrs. Cromley come into the picture you ask?   Well, in 2000 Gloria Emmerich created and originated the character of Mrs. Cromley for the first Rocky Hock Playhouse Christmas musical.  Angel Cromley (slightly wacky and very fun) has become a beloved perennial character in every Christmas show since.  (Rocky Hock Christmas musicals always begin with the modern Cromley family who eventually go back in time to tell the Biblical story of the birth of Christ.)  So, when Christmas 2002 rolled around, and since her clusters had become so “famous,” Gloria came up with the idea of packaging the clusters and giving them the name:  Mrs. Cromley’s Famous Peanut Clusters.

In the years since, untold thousands of clusters have been hand made by Gloria and sold to the Rocky Hock Playhouse patrons.  Then, orders began to come in from Virginia and Pennsylvania so she wanted to make the clusters available to people who wished to give them as gifts.   That is where you come in!!  Order away and be assured that Mrs. Cromley’s Famous Peanut Clusters are STILL carefully and lovingly hand made and packaged by Gloria Emmerich—Mrs. Cromley herself!

In 2006 Gloria wrote a cookbook that was appropriately titled Mrs. Cromley’s World Famous Cookbook. It contains over 250 recipes collected by Gloria over the years.  She was raised in the small fishing village of Newport, Oregon and loved those good ol' church potlucks.  Many of the recipes in the book are those of the dear saints from Newport who wrote down their wonderful Oregon Coast recipes that would otherwise perhaps be lost—except for Mrs. Cromley’s World Famous Cookbook! The book is peppered (as it were) with stories of life in Oregon and many of Gloria’s “famous” limericks to keep you laughing in the kitchen as you enjoy the timeless recipes in this marvelous book.  ENJOY!

Born This Day
(in the City of David)

 
Musical Description

In all of history there has never been another night quite like that holy night when our Lord was born in a lowly stable in Bethlehem.  The angels sang, and the shepherds sang - all of Heaven rejoiced when Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary, arrived on that cold and lonely night over 2000 years ago.  This musical by Gloria Emmerich will make you feel that you might really have been there on that most holy of all nights.  Born This Day (in the City of David) premiered on the Rocky Hock Playhouse stage in Washington, North Carolina in November of 2009.
For God So Loved...

 
Musical Description

Gloria Emmerich's unique and popular writing style has inspired thousands around the world.  Her unique ability to "get inside" the characters in her musicals has forced many an audience to its feet as the final curtain falls.  She has written a real masterpiece in this, her newest musical, For God So Loved....   Gloria is the writer of dozens of musicals, songs, and one-act dinner theatre pieces.

For God So Loved... is a full length musical which takes a fresh new look at Jesus, his relationship with dear friends, and of course, his death and resurrection.  It also features the timeless and much-loved characters: John the Beloved, Peter, Mary, Martha, James, and the woman at the well.

The role of Jesus is played by seasoned Christian actor Jeffrey Emmerich.  The other outstanding cast members in this production originated their roles in For God So Loved... at the Rocky Hock Playhouse in Washington, NC (where this DVD was filmed) in the spring of 2009.

Hosanna, what a Savior!  The earth rejoiced when Jesus was born and wept at his death.  But, because of an empty tomb, we're singing again today.  The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus will come alive to you in this new musical passion by Gloria Emmerich.  Come and celebrate the eternal reign of the King of Kings.
 

Jacob, Prince of God 

 

Musical Description

Love, intrigue, deception, sibling rivalry, fraud, restoration - it all sounds like the evening news, right?  But no, this story comes to us from the book of Genesis and took place thousands of years ago.   Jacob, Prince of God is the story of the most famous twins in the Bible: Jacob and Esau.  They were born in ancient Israel where the custom of the day was for the eldest son to receive one hundred percent of his father’s wealth through what was called a “birthright.”  Esau was the firstborn twin but Jacob tricked him out of his rightful inheritance, birthright, AND their father’s blessing.  Angered, and seeking revenge, Esau vowed to kill Jacob who was then forced to leave home and spend years running from Esau.  Despite his flawed character God blessed Jacob in every way possible.  The famous story of Jacob and Esau is brought to life in this full length musical by Gloria Emmerich.  The music is unparalleled and the finale will make you stand up and cheer!
 

King David
(Sweet Psalmist of Israel)


 
Musical Description

Who was this boy in the field tending sheep?  What childhood visions and rapturous, heavenly worship did he cherish in the recesses of his mind and memory, then carry into adulthood?  David was a child of vision and a man of resolution and determination.  His passions, sometimes nearly out of control, were constantly harnessed and redirected by the living God of Israel.  As shepherd, as warrior, as friend, as husband, and as king, David was filled with zeal.  He was wounded in spirit by Saul’s jealousy, Jonathan’s death, and Michal’s betrayal.   But, never ever was he defeated.  David made mistakes, yet his heart was full of adoration for the Father.  No one else in scripture was ever portrayed as, “A man after God’s own heart.”  We have so much to learn from the Sweet Psalmist of Israel.
Noah's Incredible Cruise
Musical Description

This children's musical, penned by Gloria Emmerich, is perhaps the most versatile work ever written for children (and adults) to perform and enjoy.  Noah and his wife bring the truths of this remarkable Old Testament story to life.  Noah's Incredible Cruise can be performed by just two people or dozens.  Children, teens, and adults alike can collaborate to make this one of the most fun and inspiring journeys they will ever take.  Virtually and number of children can participate in the musical as they (with the help of their creative parents) become all the animals on the ark.  If you have some spare (and brave) teens or tall younger kids around, they can be used as Noah's sons and daughters-in-law.  Noah and his wife can be played by people of any age - as long as they can sing and are willing to have the time of their lives.  This musical has been performed with, and by, thousands of children around the world and is perhaps Gloria Emmerich's most performed work.  Noah's Incredible Cruise is especially appropriate for Vacation Bible Schools, Sunday school rallies, church services, and any time people want to turn the world upside down in 35 minutes!
 
Star Over Bethlehem
Musical Description

One cold winter's night 2000 years ago a tiny child was born in a small insignificant village named Bethlehem.  The world was a dark and hopeless place but on that night of nights the brightest star represented hope and live and surely God smiled when that little "piece of Heaven" came down!  Mary and Joseph, Mary's parents, Joseph's sister, and the wise Elizabeth are central characters in this inspiring new musical about the most incredible night in history.  This original musical by Gloria Emmerich is destined to become a classic.

BONUS FOOTAGE:
The fun and lovable "Cromley Family" was a tradition at the Rocky Hock Playhouse.  They always made an appearance and kicked off the Christmas productions at the theatre.  We have included their antics in this 2008 edition of "Star Over Bethlehem."
