A few years ago, when “youth pastor” was one of the many hats I got to wear, our youth minstry put on a dinner theatre called “Dinner at Luigi’s.” I got pegged for the part of “Luigi.” I was a cranky Italian cook who ran a restaurant. It was the easiest of all the characters. I pretty much had one line. Throughout the show, I would occasionally step out of the kitchen (from offstage) and yell “Whatsa matter for you, eh!” at the other characters. It was a bit of comic relief.
Anyway…my former youth ministry is back in the theatre business again. They are performing another show to help the teens raise money for their mission trip to Alaska. Their mission in Alaska will be both repairing homes of the poor or elderly, and coordinating backyard Bible clubs for a number of communities. If you’d like to help these kids get to Alaska, buy some tickets to their newest show, “Jerusalem P.D.” It is a take off on the old TV show “Dragnet”, complete with “Joe Thursday.” Tickets are $15 each. Dinner includes steak, potato, bread, salad, dessert, etc. Chances are the acting won’t be ready for the Durham Performing Arts Center, but should be a fair night of entertainment with some good food.
There will be two showings – Friday, May 22nd, and Saturday, May 23rd, both at 6:30pm. Let me know if you’d like to go. Tickets are required as seating will be limited. Make checks payable to “Ephesus Baptist Church” and put “Youth Mission Trip” in the memo line.
