The 90 -minute performance will take place Sunday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m.
The play has been performed in area churches around Oswego County since 2007 when it first debuted under the direction of Nancy Fox and Port City Theatre.
“It has proved to be an unexpected delight with audiences every time it is performed,” said Fox, now president of CNY Arts Center. “When they hear the familiar stories of the miracles of Christ brought to life through 25 characters portrayed by only four actors the comments always include pleasant surprise.
