THE ALLEY THEATRE COMPANY

ALL TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE
for the 2020/2021 Season at THE ALLEY THEATRE.
You’ll want to get out of the house this fall and come see:
“OUR TOWN”, directed by Kevin Weston, November 12, 13, 14, 15, 2020.  This classic is worth seeing again, and perfectly suited for “in-the-round” theatre at THE ALLEY.

This Christmas will see a new production of Charles Dickens’ classic, “A CHRISTMAS CAROL” adapted and directed by Rick Vale.  We’ve added a weekend of performances for this popular musical adaptation which has been playing in Anderson (at Madison Park Church) for over 25 years.  Our version (same music & script) is December 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 2020.

Warm up in January with Noel Coward’s “BLITHE SPIRIT”, a classic comedy directed by Tommy Thomas, and playing January 21, 22, 23, 24, 2021.  Laugh and warm up!

The moving story of Helen Keller and her mentor/teacher Annie Sullivan are told in “THE MIRACLE WORKER” directed by Rhonda Tinch-Mize.  Get your tickets for February 18, 19, 20, 21, 2021.

THE ALLEY will close the season with the incredible, “AMADEUS” by Peter Shaffer.  This show, directed by Raymond Kester and performed in the magnificent ANDERSON MUSEUM OF ART on March 18, 19, 20, 21, 2021.

Purchase all FIVE SHOWS and hold a “GOLDEN TICKET” – giving you priority seating and refreshments!  CALL 765.643.0701 for tickets!



CONGRATULATIONS GRADS!
Let's Show Them Some Love

Pictured above are our CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH Graduates for 2020.  They have all been with us for several years, four of them have sung with us in the Chancel Choir, Jordyn has been with us for longer.  None of them, unfortunately, will be able to to “walk” and celebrate their graduation ceremonies.  As things stand, we may not be able to congratulate some of them or see them off to their new chapters in life after they graduate.

SO…let’s send them some love!  Here are their “home” addresses, let’s shower them with congratulations and love from Central Christian Church!

Beginning ASH WEDNESDAY, and running 40 days through Saturday, April 11th (not counting Sundays) is the Season of  LENT, 2020.  This year we celebrate in a unique way (don’t we always?), but with the always-present charge to know Jesus better.  

This years theme, along that line, celebrates not only Jesus the Rabbi and his “attendance” at the Festivals, but also how each festival and observance shows the Messiah “hiding in plain sight”.

Each Sunday will be a journey into a specific festival, and each Wednesday will see a different Elder from Central give a personal and thoughtful message regarding their journey getting to know Jesus.



It seems like an overstatement, but it truly is “the trip of a lifetime”.  This is your invitation to join me on another HOLY LAND ADVENTURE.  Some things to know:  this is Spring 2021 (not 2020) and will include some of the most beautiful sights, four-star accommodations and restaurants, a luxury air-conditioned bus, historic sights, meaningful moments, good friends, and so much more.

There will be walking, on uneven stone sometimes, but not an undo amount – however, you will “get your steps in” 🙂  During my last trip there wasn’t a moment we didn’t feel safe, and the people are warm and gracious.  Our hosts on the trip are knowledgeable and able to get us through even the most complex “red-tape”.

The weather will be warm and mild this time of year, the folliage will be colorful, and the land won’t be too crowded (it’s after PASSOVER and before HIGH HOLY DAYS).

The scripture comes to life on every corner, and each day brings sights, sounds, and the taste of this wonderful country.

I hope you can join me – if interested, just let me know and I’ll make sure you’re on the list and that you have your questions answered.
