Limelight Theatre: The Christians
Thurs. – Sun. from October 23 to November 15, 2015 at Limelight Theatre, Inc.
Please Note: This event is from 2015.
The controversial theological drama "The Christians," written by Lucas Hnath, will be performed at the Limelight Theatre in St. Augustine, Florida from October 23 to November 15, 2015. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday for the duration of the show. The play will take place on the Koger-Gamache Stage.
"The Christians" is the story of an American evangelical Protestant pastor Paul. The origins of Paul’s church were small and humble—his church began as a modest storefront. However, through the generous donations of the congregation, the church is now a megachurch. The church is complete with thousands of members, a coffee shop in the lobby, and dozens of Sunday School classrooms.
The drama unfolds as Paul gives a sermon that fundamentally shakes the foundation of his church’s belief system. Hnath’s thought-provoking theological play raises questions on the nature and origins of belief and faith. This drama is best suited for an adult audience.
The local cast includes Everette Street as Pastor Paul; Daniel Carter as Associate Pastor Joshua; Jim Fellows as Elder Jay; Tracey Gallagher as Elizabeth; and Jennifer Latka as Jenny. The performance is directed by Richard Curran-Kelley
Opening night on October 23rd includes pre-show champagne and a meet-the-cast party following the performance.
