Poor Pastor Kenny. I really do enjoy drawing cartoons. Honest.
However, over the last few months, the collective spare time of the family has been absorbed by this year’s Nativity Experience at Glad Tidings Church in Moncton. My wife Rhonda wrote the play in 2010 and now we are less than a week away from seeing in performed on stage. It’s an exciting prospect to see a church building transformed for this size of a production.
The main character in the play is Simeon, whom the Bible describes as “…just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel.” All we really know about him comes from the account of Mary and Joseph arriving at the temple in Luke 2:25-39. The play is an attempt to provide a fictionalized backstory for Simeon and his waiting alongside Mary and Joseph’s extrodinary circumstances and wondering if anyone will believe them.
Coro Brio is back along with several amazing soloists and actors. This production also includes original music composed by Tania Roberts. If you’re even a little bit curious, you need to come and see this show. You won`t regret it.
Performance times are:
Friday, December 9 @ 7:00 PM
Saturday, December 10 @ 7:00 PM
Sunday, December 11 @ 7:00 PM
(Doors open at 6:15 PM)
