 CLASS_TheatreWebSlidesINSTAGRAM-02The Mysteries: Creation
By Bernie Sahlins and Nick Rudall
Directed by Lisa L. Abbott
Nov. 11-18, 2015
Center for Art and TheatreFamily Friendly  THE MYSTERIES: CREATION are a modern adaptation of the medieval bible plays. They are, above all, wonderful stories involving families at work and play, all in a relationship to a God who was not walled up in church to be visited only on Sunday but who was ever-present. This modern-day version is joyous, music filled, comic, suspenseful, and satisfying. A magically engaging drama for all ages set to welcome the holiday season.  Come and enjoy the Mysteries!

“The darkness so name I the night;

For day I bid, LET THERE BE LIGHT!”
