ABOUT THE DRAMA
"You took me back to that time and made it personal... what it must have been like to be with Jesus." Audience Review
This original live one-woman performance is a personal encounter with this great saint. "At the Feet of Jesus" brings familiar Bible stories to life, and transports us to the time of Jesus and the Blessed Mother. Based on sacred scripture and authentic church writings, this engaging story shines a holy and reverent light on Saint Mary Magdalene. We are inspired by her courage and faith in following Jesus. . . even when many others walk away from Him.
This story highlights:
Mary's friendship with the Blessed Mother
The Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
"...inspiring to enter into the life of Mary Magdalene...her faith and love of Mary and Jesus." Audience Review
Catholic performing artist Nancy Scimone portrays Mary Magdalene in this uplifting and inspiring story, directed by award-winning Catholic theater director Rob Tessier.
Saint Pope John Paul wrote in his Letter to Artists The Way of Beauty, "In order to convey the message entrusted to her by Christ, the Church needs art." Live theater has the potential to evangelize the message of Christ and His Church in a uniquely efficacious way.
"I love how you brought Mary Magdalene to life." Audience Review
Original songs from the performance include "I Will Not Walk Away," when Mary Magdalene hears the Bread of Life Discourse; "Gratitude," anointing the feet of Jesus; and "I Have Seen the Lord!," her joy at seeing the risen Lord. The songs are being arranged by Sister Rosemary Esseff, O.P, from the Dominicans of Saint Cecilia in Nashville, Tennessee. You can read some lyrics here: Song Lyrics
