Amphibian Stage Productions is bringing back its 2013-produced, back by popular demand, The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged).
The play will run Friday, July 7, through Sunday, August 13, at the Berlene T. and Jarrell R. Milburn Theatre at Amphibian Stage Productions, located at 120 S. Main Street.
The Bible will take viewers through the Good Book “from fig leaves to final judgement,” and according to an Amphibian news release “everything you thought you knew about the most widely read book in history will be turned upside down.”
Tickets for the show are $33 with senior, student and group discounts. Up to July 7 general admission tickets will be discounted to $25. Tickets can be purchased online, by email to email@example.com or by phone at (817) 923-3012.
Two special showings will occur on Friday, July 7, and Saturday, July 8. Friday is opening night for the Amphibian’s Devonian members, though non-members can attend for $100. Saturday is the members’ cast party night, though non-members can attend for $50.
This is Amphibian’s third main stage play of the 2017 season. Brandon Murphy and Scott Zenreich will return to the show as two of the original cast members, along with Aaron Fouhey.
Artistic Director of Amphibian Stage Productions Kathleen Culebro said she is excited to bring back the most popular show in Amphibian’s 18 years.
“When we produced it in 2013 I wondered how audiences in the Bible Belt would receive it. I learned quickly that it’s a perfect fit,” she said. “As soon as it closed, church groups, long-time Amphibian supporters and newcomers into our fold were begging us to bring it back.”
The creative team includes Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor. Jay Duffer will direct the play, which features scenic design by Seancolin Hankins, lighting design by Kenneth Farnsworth, sound design by David Lanza, props design by Stefany Cambra, and costume design by Brittny Mahan.
