The celebration of Easter

Kelley Cox Post Independent

GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” The New Creation Church Productions has performed in many Christmas performances at the Hotel Colorado in the past 12 years.

This weekend, the theater company is presenting “Book Mark” at the New Creation Church, just west of the Canyon Creek I-70 exit on Highway 6. Shows start at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 10 and 11. Doors open for seating at 6:30 p.m., and because full houses are expected both nights, early arrival is recommended. The performances are free.

The “Book Mark” production was originally written by Jeanette Clift George (AD Players from Houston) and adapted for use with NCC Productions. NCC Director Ruth Mollman researches the Internet for the best and most appropriate productions.

“Book Mark” is the tale of Mark, the author of the second Gospel, who collected information about Jesus through interactions with those who had first-hand experiences.

Mollman says, “Under raised eyebrows and through wide-opened eyes, we see the happenings of then as though they were now. We see Mark, an immediate journalist, compiling the facts of a story rich with truth, as inviting to us today as it was to its first-century readers.”

More than 50 volunteers have helped to produce the play, with hundreds of hours of work on staging, construction, lighting, technical, advertising, administration, acting, research, costuming, and oversight.

Portions of the sound track from “The Passion of the Christ” are incorporated during Act II in this weekend’s production.
