Summer Sunday Thespians Needed

Summer Sunday: Princeton UMC Thespians act out the story of Miriam, written by Richard Gordon, directed by Rachel Callendar.

Summer Sunday children’s plays have begun! These are the wonderful plays about Biblical stories written by Richard Gordon.

Everyone had great fun at the first week’s play about Miriam. 

In July, children have three chances to be in a play — or to watch a play.  On July 2, kids will act out the story of Ruth. On July 16, it’s all about David and Abigail. Every girl’s favorite — the story of Esther — is July 30.

Students going into 3rd grade and above will meet at 9:30 a.m. in Room 204 to begin rehearsing. Younger children can be dropped off closer to 10 a.m. at rooms 102-103 and will be brought upstairs halfway through service to watch the play

No one — whatever age — wants to miss seeing and hearing the ASP team report on Sunday, July 9, so there will be no play that day.

And this month we will have our first monthly Alternative Worship, so families will worship together on July 23.

We need volunteers — two adult assistants to the Play Director, two adults to supervise younger children before the play starts, plus Thespians — children who wish to be actors in the play. Please sign up online here!
