UNION — A local church will present a drama in observance of Maundy Thursday, bringing “The Last Supper” to life.
“The Living Last Supper” will be performed at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 17, in the Grace United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall in observance of Maundy Thursday.
“What an exciting time to celebrate as we prepare for an informative time concerning Jesus and the Disciples that can assist all who attend with yet another touch of what it was like to be with Jesus long ago!” said the Rev. David Bauknight.
Betsy Trakas, the director of the program, said it is visually patterned after the scene of the Last Supper as it appears in Leonardo da Vinci’s painting.
In the play, each of the twelve disciples will offer a monologue detailing his relationship with Christ.
Participants include Bob Love, Brad Valentine, Allen Charles, Johnny Sinclair, Steve Hudson, John Glenn, Charlie Long, Wayne Wallace, Charlie Kelly, Paul Wilkes, Charles Whitaker, Derik Vanderford, Daniel Prince and John Crocker.
Bauknight said he deeply appreciates everyone sharing in this important time because of its representation of the Christian life.
Following the drama, Communion will be served.
