Event Description

Just Give ’em the News – Hesston, KS

As part of the annual Anabaptist Vision and Discipleship Series (AVDS) conference at Hesston College entitled "When the Unthinkable Happens," from February 17-19 2017, Ted & Co will perform Just Give 'em the News on February 18th at 7:00 pm at Hesston Mennonite Church, 309 S Main Street, Hesston, KS. Non-conference attendees can purchase show tickets for $12 per adult at the door or at the Hesston College Bookstore. Youth through high school-age are free.

A Christmas play in February? In the dead of Winter, the Christmas rush passed, we may find ourselves still carrying the stress of the holidays. And that heavy grief not far from us. Interrupting the dark, interrupting the death, a light. The surprising light is human, a lived out humanity rooted in great love. We will be invited to laugh and find new meaning in the very human stories of Christmas.  We will be invited to laugh as a community in the midst of a dark time, surprised by great love.

Just Give ‘Em the News is a unique, delightfully askew, musical take on the first Christmas. Ted Swartz and Jeff Raught weave original songs and inspired piano playing with comedic theater around a new look at the familiar story.
