If you're looking for something fun to do this Wednesday evening, check out the diocesan performance of "Murder in the Cathedral" at 7:30 p.m., June 30th, at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany. This play by T. S. Eliot, in two acts, describes the story of St. Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, and his murder in the Canterbury Cathedral in the year 1170.
Many priests who you might know are cast members (Rev. Anthony Barratt, Rev. Anthony Ligato, Rev. Daniel Quinn), and Bishop Edward Scharfenberger plays the role of the Archbishop of Canterbury. Also, I am in the chorus (which involves no singing, thankfully!). We've had so much fun at rehearsals. I have no acting ability whatsoever, and this experience is completely out of my "comfort zone" ~ but I can tell you that I've had an absolute blast, and it has been fun trying something new. What a terrific group of creative and expressive individuals ... and getting to know the Cathedral more has been wonderful! As the chorus (women of Canterbury), it has been a challenge for three of us (and in the second act, five of us) to all speak together in a cadence. But we've worked hard, and I think the end result will be awesome!
Would love to have you join us! And it's free ~ no tickets required!
