BCS Drama – Saving Jesus – Pentecost Service Performance – 2017

On Sunday 4th June 2017, for the Brechin Churches Together United Service, the Brechin Crossroads Storytellers (BCS) Drama Club performed their latest show titled Saving Jesus to celebrate Pentecost Sunday.

Saving Jesus (with a twist)

This was a story about young teenagers who are all excellent at using the latest technology such as smart phones, but knew nothing about who Jesus was. By way of some amazing events, they discovered the story and decided that it wasn’t fair what happened to Jesus, and so they wanted to travel back in time by hyperlink in order to save him. However, it was a big surprise for them to learn that Jesus didn’t want them to save him and in fact stopped them from doing so.

A Talented Cast

It was an unusual performance combining children from four different age groups (P4 – S2) and from three different schools, Maisondieu, Edzell and Brechin High School. It was a challenge for the children in that they had to be flexible, courageous and confident while learning to work with unfamiliar peers. It was a delight to see how relaxed and confident they were on the stage and it was as if they had always worked with each other. This is a sign that they’ve developed some very important qualities by attending our Drama classes for the past four years since April 2014.

These qualities include:

  • Confidence;
  • Courage;
  • Excellent communication skills;
  • Love, respect and friendliness towards each other;
  • Acting skills;
  • Fun and enjoyment as they seem to love the excitement of it all!

They all coped extremely well and are a credit to their parents. The applause they received from the rather large audience at the end of the performance was truly well deserved!

Special Thanks

Big thanks to all the wonderful children involved and a special thank you to their parents for their continued support. Thank you to Kerry and Emma for being so helpful during rehearsals and the performances, your help was very timely and necessary. As always thank you to Gordon Strachan and Co for building and dismantling the stage (and the bonfire for the mashmallows). Thanks also to Beryl Whyte and Gaynee for providing coffee for parents and cakes for the children.

Thank you to all the congregations of Churches Together and thank you to Rev. Dr. Roderick Grahame for your kindness, help and continued support which is very much appreciated.

Finally, a very special thank you to my wonderful husband Allan, there simply isn’t enough room to express my gratitude to you for all that you do behind the scenes.

Love Iryna

🙂
