FPU play uses new techniques to dramatize Book of Acts

Historical travelogue, morality tale, personal testimony—the spring play at Fresno Pacific University tells a unique story in an unusual way.

“The Book of Acts” will be at 8 p.m. April 10-12 at Mennonite Community Church, 5015 E. Olive Avenue. The play uses five actors in contemporary dress playing a multitude of characters to illuminate the story of the early Christian church. The cast comprises FPU students Chelsea Christensen, Sarah Cram and Beth Wiens; Ryan Wilson, a student at Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary; and Megan Steinert, an FPU graduate. Julia Reimer, head of the FPU theater program, directs.

Admission is $7 for general audiences and $5 for students and senior citizens. For more information or to make reservations, telephone 453-2034.
