On Saturday, the Messiah Lutheran Church Adult Choir and Repertoire Players presented an original production of “The Unexpected Visitors”. This hilarious two act musical/comedy mystery explores comedic result of two couples from out of town visiting a Lutheran Church. Because no one recognizes them, the congregation jumps to the assumption that they are a search committee who has come to take the pastor away.
Dinner Theater is an annual event at Messiah Lutheran Church. This year’s standing room only event was used as a fund raiser for Messiah’s “Lunches for Learning” Ministry. Over $1000 was raised to support this awesome ministry that feeds school age kids at our elementary school in Honduras.
The Unexpected Visitors” was created, produced and directed by Messiah’s very own Bob Gustafson. The assistant producer/director was Taylor Bono. Music direction was provided by Lois Graff and Randall Fields. The technical director was Paul Zutter.
Special thanks to Greg Kilby and the fellowship committee for providing a wonderful dinner of Marsala Chicken and all the fixings. And thanks to the youth of Messiah Lutheran Church for serving as wait staff for the event. They did an incredible job feeding a hungry mob of Lutherans.
