our church was putting on a dinner theatre this past weekend, 3 nights showing, called 'welcome to mitford'. we decided early on to go to it and were originally going to take the boys but decided to turn it into a date night. then it got turned into a small group/date night gathering.
the dinner theatre was held at the Link of Savannah Christian Church. The Link is the student ministries building. The stage (above and below) was specifically designed. The back drop here was the part of the entire play. A few 'scenes' would come out of craftily erected doors hidden in the backdrop then they would be retrieved and go to another scene. it was laid back and fun.
Welcome to Mitford is a drama, comedy written by Robert Inman adapted from the Mitford novels written by Jan Karon and centered around Father Tim Cavanaugh a much-loved rector of the community chapel of Mitford along with the quirky character parishoners that Father Tim comes into contact with every day. Father Tim is in every scene and carries the brunt of the play but the additional characters were amazingly fun and indepth.
