Schreiner Offers Unique Music & Drama Production  

In a creative first, the Schreiner University choir and theatre department will collaborate in presenting an irreverent; avant-garde staged choral experience entitled “Passion.” The production encompasses four movements: Birth, Life, Death, and Resurrection, and promises to be one of the highlights of Schreiner’s fall schedule in the creative arts.

“Passion” will be presented on both October 20th and 21st at 7:30 pm in Dietert Auditorium on the Schreiner campus. The production is free and open to the public.

The music for the production will be a mixture of famous classical pieces such as “Ave Verum Corpus” by Mozart and “How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place” by Brahms, spirituals and pop music such as “I Can See Clearly Now” and “Oh Happy Day”, and what co-producer Derek Horton, a part-time faculty member at Schreiner, calls “a generous dose of 20th century American camp in a fun spectacle that redefines our sense of what is sacred.” In addition to the Schreiner choir, directed by Michael Kahl, and student actors directed by Horton, the performance will feature a string quartet from Symphony of the Hills accompanied by Terri Henneke-Theis.

For more information, contact Kahl at 830-792-7417 or Dr. Claudia Sullivan, professor of theatre and communication, at 830-792-7401.
