31st Candlelight Concert, Radio Play, and Annual Live Nativity Re-scheduled
Hurricane Sandy has wreaked havoc in stunning fashion in our community. One inadvertent victim to All Saints' Memorial Church has been the complete re-arrangement of several events that have become entertainment favorites within our community. The Candlelight Concert, originally scheduled in mid-November, now will take place on Sunday, December 9th, at 4:00 p.m. at All Saints'. Performing an all-French repertory of works by Rampal, Poulenc, and Pierne, are well-known area musicians, cellist Samuel Magill, pianist Vladislav Kovalsky, and flutist Lucian Rinando. A festive candlelight reception will follow the concert in the All Saints' Parish House. Reservations may be made by calling the church office at 732-291-0214, or by emailing the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Stone Church Players will perform a radio play version of A Christmas Carol evenings at 8 pm on November 30, and December 1, with a matinee performance at 3 pm on Sunday, December 3. This adaptation of the well-known story features live actors on stage reading scripts as if the play were being staged in a radio studio. The cast concludes the radio play with lovely Christmas carols and seasonal favorites. The hour-and-a-half production is perfect for all ages, and tickets are available at the door: $5.00 for seniors and children under twelve, and $10.00 for everybody else. For further information, please call the church office at 732-291-0214, or email email@example.com.
Another favorite of the Christmas season, The Live Nativity at All Saints', has been re-scheduled for Friday and Saturday evening, December 14 and 15, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Costumed participants act out the story of the birth of Jesus on church grounds and the evening walk culminates in the manger scene complete with live farm animals. The petting zoo is courtesy of Potter's Farm in Middletown.
After enjoying the walking tour and petting zoo, everyone is invited to the Parish House for cookies, donuts and hot chocolate--and perhaps a special visit with a certain gentleman from the North Pole. Admission is free to the public. Call for more information at 732-291-0214, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
