Event Description

The Big Story – Markdale, ON

Coming to Annesley United Church (82 Toronto St S, Markdale, ON), Ted Swartz will present The Big Story on April 6 at 7:00pm as part of a fundraiser for the church. Admission is $20.00 for adults, $10.00 for children 7-12. Children  6 and under are free. This dramatic, one-man show combines scripture, story, and humor, bringing biblical characters from Genesis to Revelation to life in unexpected and entertaining ways.

Ted is a theologian of a different sort. Both theater and seminary trained, he has found a unique and entertaining discovery; at the intersection of humor and biblical story is often a greater understanding of the text. Or, at the very least, a different understanding. It’s “comedic exegesis.” When we allow ourselves to laugh, we open up the possibility of experiencing God’s grace and accepting the truth of our lives more courageously.
