Mime shares story of Gospel at Concordia

Sunday, Apr. 6, 2014

A student-led drama, "The Gospel Mime," told the Easter story through a silent theatrical production April 14-15 in the Weller Hall auditorium on the Concordia campus. 

“It tells the story is of Jesus’ life from creation to resurrection,” freshman Chris Pladsen said. Pladsen was involved in mime in high school, and his family led a Gospel mime group at his church, so he decided to bring the event to Seward.

The hour-long production told the story of Christ’s life without words. The mime used minimal props and was set to contemporary Christian music.

A freewill offering was taken with proceeds benefiting the family of 1-year-old Ethan Bulgrin who was born with a heart defect.
