WAYNESBORO: Faith United Methodist Church To Host Frederick Classical Ensemble – The Second Shepherds’ Play

FREDERICK CLASSICAL ENSEMBLE (FCE) is proud to announce the holiday production of its 2018/19 season, The Second Shepherds’ Play, adapted for modern audiences by Reiner Prochaska. The 2017 original production was directed by Jesse Marciniak.

This comedy with a Christmas message is sure to delight audiences of all ages with the hilarious antics of its quirky characters, as well as its Christmas songs. Be prepared to join a sing-along at the end of the play.

On Christmas Eve, three shepherds – Coll, Gyb, and Daw – are herding their flock on their organic sheep farm commune when Mak, who has a reputation for stealing sheep, visits them.

Mak succeeds in filching a ram, which he swiftly delivers to his wife, Gill, who is furious with Mak for exposing both of them to the risk of legal consequences. To protect their secret – and their Christmas dinner – Gill and Mak wrap the sheep in swaddling clothes and hide it in their cradle.

As the three shepherds solve the crime and retrieve their material possession, they learn an important spiritual lesson—right before they witness the miracle of Christmas first-hand.

You’re invited to a STAR PARTY!

 

Renfrew Institute – Star Party

 

Area residents are invited to a “Star Party,” a telescope viewing of the night sky, Renfrew Park, Waynesboro.

Telescopes will be set up in the backyard of the museum house. Members of the Tri-State Astronomers Club will be on hand to guide viewers and answer questions.

 

 

 

Event coordinator and TSA member, Andy Smetzer said, “One of the goals of our group is to have as many people as possible look through a telescope. It’s also a good chance for someone thinking of buying a telescope to try one out and ask questions.”

“During the star party, we will be observing various nebula and star clusters of the winter night sky,” Smetzer said.

For more information on the night skies, Smetzer suggests these websites: www.tristateastronomers.org and www.spaceweather.com.

Viewers may come and go anytime during the event.

Those attending may bring their own telescope and binoculars, as well as lawn chairs or blankets.

Flashlights are not permitted in the telescope viewing area but may be used to reach the area from the parking lot.

Free cookies and hot chocolate will be offered in the Visitors Center Wagon Shed Room.

Participants may park behind the visitors center ~ Additional parking is available in Renfrew’s lower lot off Welty Road.

NOTE: If the weather is too overcast, the event will be postponed. If In doubt,ccheck the website at: www.renfrewinstitute.org

The event, a partnership between Renfrew Institute and Tri-State Astronomers (TSA), is free and open to the public.
