Summer Musical

Important Update from Epiphany Players Drama Ministry

2020 Summer Musical

After much discussion and a lot of prayerful consideration, the drama steering team has made the very difficult decision to cancel this summer’s production of The Music Man. This is a heartbreaking decision to have to make, and we know this is very disappointing news for everyone to hear, but the steering team feels it is the right choice to make given the very fluid status of this global pandemic. With a large cast, crew and audiences, we do not want to put anyone in a position where their health may be at unnecessary risk this summer. We hope to offer alternative ways to continue this ministry throughout the summer; join our Drama Ministry Facebook group for more information.

 

Epiphany continues its tradition of 25+ years of inter-generational church fellowship, family sharing, community outreach, and individual growth. Over half the actors and families involved are drawn from outside the Epiphany family, providing this ministry a unique opportunity to carry out its mission. The summer musical is self-funded and requires no monetary support from the church. In addition, we support a charitable organization each summer. Combining a free-will offering from the patrons plus a commitment from Epiphany Players, the team annually donates over $2000 to the selected group.
