Fun with Wigs

No explanation needed.
Well, I guess I should say that this year's "Jesus" in the Passion Play has short hair, so we've pulled out some wigs. I'd love to hear your comments on my two models.

Set Construction Update

Things are coming along for this year's Passion Play - Free! My Chains Are Gone
April 21-23, 7:00
Tickets are free.

So here are a few pictures form yesterday. For some reason my phone won't send pictures to facebook anymore. I guess they aren't on speaking terms.

Baskets of leftover bread (they'll be 12)

Pilate's Court
(Still have plants to finishing details to add)

Dr. Luke's House
(He's our main actor this year. He'll be working on a letter to Theophilus. - See Luke 1:1-4)

Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

Great music is great no matter what instrumentation is used to play it. Bach's beloved song "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" is one of those songs. I've heard it sung by choirs, played by strings, pianos, even a saxophone quartet - and it's always lovely.

This video has it performed in a totally different way and once again it shows it's timeless classic beauty - and it's just reallllly awesome the way they did this!

Construction Week

It's construction week as we prepare for this year's Passion Play - "Free! My Chains Are Gone."

If you live in Clarksville and you get the daily paper you might have noticed our ad in the Rivers and Spires program guide. Not only was this delivered to 20,000 homes, it will be all over downtown during Rivers and Spires.

The first load of set pieces arrived early this morning before the rains came.

I'll try to keep you updated.

The easiest way to see set construction is to follow along on FaceBook. (although today it wouldn't let me uplad this picture)
