Film showing as part of Féile le Chéíle 2017

All are welcome to a complimentary showing of the film Letters from Luke at 8:00 pm on Monday, 10 July in the Askamore Community Activity Centre. This is a family-friendly, live musical theatre event, presented by Potter’s Hand Productions, a Christian Theatre Company based in the USA, and was filmed before a live audience.  

This uplifting and professional production is a multi-denominational original musical drama based on the eye-witness accounts of Jesus, taken right from the pages of the book of Luke. Included is lively and moving original music and lyrics, which further enhance the storyline and action. The characters in Letters from Luke relate how their lives were redirected because of their personal encounter with Jesus Christ. Each one’s first-hand testimony is both convincing and life-changing. 
Now in their fourteenth year, Potter’s Hand Productions currently produces two major musical productions each year. Since 2012, all musical events have been original productions, written and directed by a local summer resident, and supported by a team of professional costumers, audio specialists, set and prop managers, and lighting technicians. The public is invited to come and sample professional theatre free of charge. Refreshments will be served following the film, which runs about 90 minutes.
