It's the story of Jesus' life as told by St. Matthew, except this time it's in Georgia during the mid-20th century — with Gainesville as Bethlehem and Atlanta as Jerusalem — and five cast members playing a raft of roles: Jesus, St. Matthew, John the Baptizer, Herod, Pontius Pilate, Mary, the angels, a television evangelist and Judas the betrayer.
This musical, which opened Nov. 2, has just two more performances at the Dungeness Schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road, courtesy of the nonprofit Readers Theatre Plus troupe.
Ric Munhall and Dewey Ehling share the directing duties of the show, while bassist Sanford Feibus, fiddler Waynne Shields and guitarist Carl Honore are the trio providing the twang.
Tickets are $15 each or two for $25 for the final shows — 2 p.m. today and 7 p.m. Wednesday.
They're on sale at Pacific Mist Books, 121 W. Washington St. in Sequim; Odyssey Books, 114 W. Front St. in Port Angeles; and at the schoolhouse door.
As with all Readers Theatre Plus productions, this is a fundraiser for a local cause.
“Cotton Patch” proceeds will go to the troupe's scholarships for local high school students graduating in 2013.
