The St. Mary’s University Theatre Department will present “Has Your Faith Been Tested?” – a Community-Based Theatre production – this month, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Marianist mission in India.
Community-Based Theatre creates original work for the community and with the community, usually focusing on a socially driven topic. This production will explore the topic of faith. St. Mary’s theatre students have engaged with the University and San Antonio communities to create an original script, which will incorporate audience and social media interaction during the performances.
What: St. Mary’s University performance of “Has Your Faith Been Tested?”
When: 7:30 p.m., March 20-22
Where: Guadalupe Chapel, St. Mary’s University
Tickets: $15 for general admission; $10 for students, faculty, staff, alumni, military and senior citizens; free for Marianists
The production was conceived and directed by Evans Jarnefeldt, Visiting Assistant Professor of Drama. He is a CBT artist focused on creating theater for social change. Jarnefeldt is also a professional actor, and he will appear June 5 as the title character in “Hamlet” at San Antonio’s Shakespeare in the Park Festival at the Botanical Gardens. He has also performed with Guthrie Theater, Chautauqua Theater Company, Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, Bedlam Faction, Street Corner Arts and Fugitive Theater Ensemble.
