“The Pied Piper: The Musical” Opens Tonight!

1

Hey all!  The Pied Piper: The Musical opens tonight at the Historic Fayette Theatre in Fayetteville, West Virginia, kicking off an 8-performance run.  Come join us for an evening of jokes, music, and varying colors!  I’m staring as the Piper, so if you like seeing me in girl’s makeup and in a bright red cape, you’ll have a blast.

Christmas Production Is Over!

4

Well, it’s finally over. The youth of Fayetteville Christ Fellowship’s Christmas Production was performed yesterday evening at 6pm EST. This Biblical retelling of the Birth of Jesus was presented from the point of Mary of Nazareth, showing the roller-coaster ride she went through from before the point of receiving the message from Gabriel to the conception of Jesus, and His death and resurrection, this play shows you what she felt during these years of rejection and hope.

This play mixes live-action stage performance with pre-filmed video projected on the screen. In one scene, Mary actually has a conversation with the video (with the voice of Gabriel being dubbed live.)

We had a great cast, especially Erika Dailey (Erica Snuffer,) who portrayed Mary. A big thanks goes out to the entire youth group, our youth group leader who directed us, to those who provided the lands to film the shepherd scene and Buster the donkey for the traveling video, and the baby for the temple footage. We had actors, narrators, musicians, and those who ran the sound and video display during the performance – it was a huge undertaking, but the theme that permeated the entire production was “Trust, trust, trust”. Yes, trust God, and with that trusting, the whole project pulled through to become a beautiful performance.

I was privileged to portray a magi, sing the song “God With Us”, and direct, film, and edit the footage sequences, as well as narrate the voice of Joseph.

Praise God for His help and leading with this project, because without Him it would not have pulled through nearly as well. There was a lot of fighting against this production, but God prevailed.

You can see all the videos from this production on this Vimeo playlist!

Enjoy and God bless
