Serious actors and crew needed for missions drama

By May 4, 2005

USA (MNN/ANS) — Wycliffe Bible Translators is looking for serious actors, stage crew and kitchen crew for a unique touring dinner theatre ministry this fall.

According ASSIST News, Wycliffe Dinner Theatre is an artistic ministry that tours regions of the U.S. every spring and autumn to raise awareness for the need for the world’s Bibleless peoples. A team of twelve to fifteen people stage a full-length live play and cultural meal for churches up to fifty times each season.

“We look for trained actors with a love for missions and a passion for excellence in theatre,” says an e-mail obtained by ANS.

Wycliffe pays all food, lodging and travel expenses, including travel to Portland, Oregon where stage and support crews have four weeks of training and rehearsal before the actual tour begins. Plus, Wycliffe pays an additional daily expense allowance that totals about a thousand dollars when the 10-week tour is complete.

The play is called ‘Sunong,’ an inspiring and challenging story from Southeast Asia. It has roles for Asian as well as Caucasian actors. It will be directed by Chris Monroe.

Rehearsal for the fall 2005 tour begins August 8 and the tour goes through November 17. To be part of the drama, follow the link above for Wycliffe contact information.
