New beginnings are blooming at Stained Glass Theatre's next production, "Grace's Grace."
When Grace moves to a new town and applies at a coffee bar, she meets the owners of the cafe, Gertrude and Walter, who are quickly amazed by her charm and grace. When a surprise person shows up from Grace's past who she thought she would never see again, those around her begin to see the grace she shows toward that person, according to director Cheryl Belt.
"It really is all about God's grace through the play and about showing grace and forgiveness to other people," Belt said.
"Grace's Grace" opens Sept. 7 and also runs Sept. 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16.
Della DeGroff will play the titular role of Grace, with Candy Treat and Curtis Treat as Gertrude and Walter, Jane Perry as Mrs. Benson, Kayla Miller as Maggie, Laura Buehler as Louise, Cindy Gearhart as Jennifer, Steve Feldman as Bruce, Amiyah Fitzsimmons as Susan, Romie Riley as Julie, Anne Eastham as Linda, Stephan Henady as Pastor Mike, Caydence Hull as Sarah, Gracie Gearhart as Hope, and Joey Wyss as Jeff.
"It's just kind of about her adventures while she's there," Belt said.
Curtis Treat is also the author of the play.
"It's an amazing cast of people. God always provides the right people for the parts," Belt said.
Since there are mature themes they deal with in the play, such as abuse, organizers are warning parents of young children about the content of the show.
The organizers are partnering with the Rape & Abuse Crisis Service to collect items and cash donations for their center since they are dealing with the topic of rape and abuse. A complete list of what RACS currently needs can be found on their website, racsjc.org.
Thursday and Friday shows begin at 7 p.m. and Saturday matinees start at 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on the Stained Glass Theatre website, sgtmidmo.org. Opening night tickets are $10, while the remainder of the performances are $15.
