Dinner Theater 2022
September 16 - October 15 | Northwood Temple Family Life Center Dining Room
When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist at the Jordan River, two men were present who would become the first disciples. They were Andrew and John. Andrew excitedly ran to find his brother Peter, while John did the same with his brother James. Jesus next met Philip and called him. Philip then found his friend Nathaniel, who lived in Cana, and brought him to Jesus. Thus, there were now six disciples. The others would be added later.
Here is where the story of the Wedding at Cana begins. In chapter 2 of the Gospel of John, we find that Jesus and the six young disciples were all invited to the celebration. Since Cana and Nazareth were only a few miles apart, and apparently Jesus’ mother Mary was involved in the event—it is likely that the bride, groom, or even both—were related to Him.
Northwood Temple Church and Northwood Temple Academy present a dinner theater production about all that went on at that wedding. When you look at the potential family ties and complications, you realize that this makes for a great story. Mary would be insistent that her Messiah/son do something when a crisis arose. In contrast, Jesus was hesitant to help—because He knew that doing anything miraculous would set Him on the road to His destiny.
With lots of twists and turns, humor and pathos, family drama and one amazing miracle, the story unfolds and comes to a climactic finish.
Come an enjoy a great meal as a guest at the wedding. See what it was like to get married in the days Jesus walked the earth.
Ten performances are planned—Friday evenings at 6:30 p.m., and Saturday matinees at 12.30 p.m. A smorgasbord buffet is served before the story begins.
Call for reservations today: The cost is $25.00 per person.
