    The Christians

    By Lucas Hnath Directed by Dr. Victoria Spangler

    On the day in which the megachurch celebrates paying off its debt, Pastor Paul approaches the pulpit to reveal that the congregation will be taking a new direction: no longer will they believe in the existence of hell. Associate Pastor Joshua takes issue with this theological turn. Thus begins the fallout, and then the schism. This drama, about real ministers and real Christians, has been applauded by critics and was performed at the Humana Festival in 2014 and Off Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2015. January 31-Feb. 3 at 7:30pm and February 4 at 2:00pm in Behren’s Chapel

    Shrek, The Musical

    Music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire Directed by Dr. Chris Hollingsworth

    Based on the characters and story from William Steig’s book and the hit Dreamworks film, this hilarious production turns the world of fairy tales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, musical comedy. Join Shrek and his loyal steed Donkey as they set off on a quest to rescue the beautiful (if slightly temperamental) Princess Fiona from her tower, guarded by a fire breathing love-sick dragon. Shrek is a mix of adventure, laughter and romance, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages! February 14-17 at 7:30pm and February 18 at 2:00pm at Van Ellis Theatre
