Find out the answer to such theological questions as “Did Adam and Eve have navels?” and “Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?” when Theatre at AACC takes the stage to perform the comedy, “The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged),” beginning Thursday, Feb. 7, at Anne Arundel Community College.
This play takes an irreverent look at the Bible, interpreting various tales through a series of vaudeville-style sketches. The play is written by the comedy team of Adam Long, Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, who also wrote “The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged.”
Each of the three-member cast takes on several roles using humor and modern-day references to re-tell some of the best-known stories. Cast members are Lea Scherini, an AACC theater student from Annapolis; Jerry Vess of Severna Park, events scheduler at AACC; and Miguel Valarino, an AACC student from Glen Burnie. Lars Tatom, associate professor of performing arts, directs the production.
Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, Feb. 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, all in the Humanities Building Room 112, known as the Humanities Little Theater, on AACC’s Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway.
Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for AACC faculty and staff, patrons older than 60 and non-AACC students and $7 for AACC students with AACC identification. Reserve tickets at the box office by calling 410-777-2457 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
