Special Event

Psalms in Motion: A Physical Expression of Faith | October 14-16

This production is a one-hour movement-only piece derived out of class work from the THTR 381 Stage Movement and Combat class, where students learn how to create movement pieces that infuse music, sound, and lighting to tell a story through movement. This production will feature student movement artists who are expressing Psalms through movement, as well as voice actors reading the Psalms and selected Psalms-inspired poetry by the late Rev. Dr. Roland “Cap” Ehlke, who passed away in May of this year. The show is presented in his honor.

  • Friday, Oct. 14: 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 15: 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 16: 7:30 p.m.

All tickets for “Psalms in Motion” are $5. Pay at the door.
