Acts of Faith Theatre Festival Announces Exciting New Season
Kick Off Set for Friday, January 18, 2013 at the November Theatre
Richmond, VA. When Second Presbyterian Church founded the Acts of Faith Theatre Festival in 2005, no one fathomed the energy that would surround the festival nine years later. What began as a small collaboration among a few theatres and Second Presbyterian Church has grown to a full community wide event involving 16 theatres and close to 20 Christian, Jewish, and Islamic congregations.
Alex Evans, Pastor at Second Presbyterian Church says, “In this 9th year of the Acts of Faith Festival, we are excited by the growing number of faith communities and the fine commitment in the theater companies. This unique festival combines thoughtful conversations about faith and life with dramatic productions that inspire hearts and minds. People across the metro region get energized by the performances and the results include an increased sense of community, deeper insights about faith, and fresh perspectives on important issues. Additionally, we find ourselves more engaged in the city and striving for a better world. What else could we want? From the early signs in our faith communities and from the theater companies, this promises to be the best year ever.”
