Sunday, January 3rd, Epiphany Pageant at 10:00 a.m. – Nicole Carreno will be directing a new script with plenty of opportunity for everyone to participate. A copy of the script with a sign up sheet is located in the undercroft. All actors will be given a copy of the script from which they can read during the play. All parts are small but, nonetheless, important. There will also be opportunities for individuals to sing solos or duets if they desire. Last one to sign up has to play the part of the donkey! Dress rehearsal will be Saturday, January 2nd from 9:00 to 12:00. Call Nicole if you have questions – 244-5878.
