Just in Time for Lent!
Our last posting wished you a Happy New Year and here it is Valentine’s Day already, with Lent fast approaching. Just in time for your Lenten services, new downloads have been added to our store. Last Supper/Footwashing, The Arrest and Denial, The Upper Room and Breakfast on the Beach bring to life these days in Jesus’ life – as seen through the eyes of disciples Peter and Andrew.
Video footage was originally shot for the Good God Theater curriculum (see below) and all 32 scenes will eventually be made available as video downloads. Ranging in length from five to ten minutes, the downloads can be used as part of your worship service or in a Sunday school or youth group setting.
Good God Theater, Act 2: New Testament is hot off the presses as well. This DVD is the second half of the Good God Theater curriculum created by Abingdon Press. The New Testament stories come from the original Fish-Eyes play, with many additional stories. Performed by Ted with a myriad of talented actors, you’ll want to consider using this curriculum with your youth group or in a multi-generational setting. Both Act 1 and Act 2 come with study guides.
And we’ve saved the biggest news for last: Ted has decided to officially call his company Ted & Company TheaterWorks. You’ve been seeing this title for the past year, but it was originally intended to be only an interim name as we explored other company names. But somehow this seemed to encapsulate best what Ted is doing – creating drama with a difference, with humor, and presenting it with a variety of different actors. You’ll soon see a new logo on this Web site along with a new home page.
We’re celebrating this name decision with a “launch” weekend here in Harrisonburg March 27-28 with performances of What Would Lloyd Do? and Tattered & Worn. For more information see the Ted & Company Calendar. Come join us!
