Easter program set at Blue Gate

Performances scheduled Wednesday through Saturday

SHIPSHEWANA — The Easter season will be celebrated Wednesday through Saturday with a musical program adapted especially for The Blue Gate Theater in Shipshewana.

In three evening performances and two matinees, The Rick Webb Family and Arts Evangelica will perform music, interpretive dance, drama and dramatic monologue.

Event organizers say “The Glory and Majesty of Easter” has been created just for The Blue Gate audience as an adaptation of the musical “He’s Gone.” Rick Webb, patriarch of the musical family, says he worked closely with writer Derric Johnson, former creative director for Disney, to stage an “exquisite” event that is appropriate for the whole family.

“The musical takes the audience from the manger to the resurrection,” Webb said. “This worshipful event is perfect for the Easter season.”

The Webb family of musicians includes Rick and his wife Phyllis and their children, Hannah and Parker. According to show organizers, local audiences have become familiar with the Rick Webb Family through the six seasons of “The Glory and Majesty of Christmas” offered at The Blue Gate.

The Webb Family will be joined on stage by Arts Evangelica, a dramatic dance troupe from North Carolina. The dancers, who will be returning from a tour in Israel just prior to arriving in Shipshewana, will offer interpretive ballet-style dance to complement the music and lyrics presented by The Rick Webb Family.

Also performing during this event will be concert pianist Andrew Lapp.

Webb stressed that the crucifixion scene is not performed in “The Glory and Majesty of Easter” but will be represented on stage by three crosses, making the event especially appropriate for families with young children.

Martin and Beth Ann Moeller of Shipshewana said they are looking forward to experiencing this new Rick Webb Family musical.

“‘The Glory and Majesty of Christmas’” was such a moving experience,” Beth Moeller said. “We’re certain this new musical will be just as spectacular.”

Rick Webb said he and his family are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces when they return to The Blue Gate Theater for this new season.

“We love The Blue Gate,” Webb said. “We’re excited to be coming back....”

Performances are set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, 1 and 7 p.m. Thursday, 7 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday.
