(Note: The original headline for this article read "Screven County High to perform 'Last Supper.'" This was incorrect -- the performers are not from SCHS but from the Maritime Ministry Players. The headline has been corrected to "Screven County High to host 'Last Supper' performance to more accurately reflect the content in the story. The editor apologizes for this mistake.)
A popular production will make its debut in Screven County this spring. “The Last Supper” will be presented by the Maritime Ministry Players — a group of performers affiliated with the Maritime Bethel at Savannah, a nonprofit organization.
These 80 minutes of musical theatre are a musical interpretation of Leonardo da Vinci’s most challenging creation, the painting of “The Last Supper,” and is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Music. The book and lyrics are written by Thomas Mitz and the vocal arrangements by Gary William Friedman. The entire production is based on an original concept by Andy Krey, Chaplain of the Maritime Bethel at Savannah.
Andy Krey, chaplain and executive director of the Maritime Bethel at Savannah, comments, “After over a decade of successful productions in New York and Georgia, we are delighted to be hosted by Screven County High School. 'The Last Supper' is a wonderful interpretation of Jesus’ last days on Earth and we are thrilled that the town of Sylvania has so warmly welcomed us.”
All proceeds from the production are given to fund the work of charities including the Maritime Bethel at Savannah and the 32 congregations of the Middle Baptist Association (MBA). The MBA’s main office telephone number is
