The Man of La Mancha, This Week At All Saints

Chris Johnson No Comments

This Wednesday, July 18, the curtain goes up on The Man of La Mancha, Upper Room Theatre Ministries’ summer production at All Saints Catholic Church. Upper Room is the theatrical child of Rob Tessier, a YA Full Member and the coordinator of youth ministry at the Manassas, Virginia, parish. Their annual summer shows have become a tradition and this year’s musical, starring Joey Clem (pictured) as the great, delusional Spanish knight in a cast that includes his fellow Youth Apostle, Father Peter Nassetta, is their most ambitious yet in set, costumes, music and performance. Come see the incomparable Don Quixote de la Mancha pursue his peerless Dulcinea in this tale of beauty and seeing others as they really are!

Tickets for the six shows are available by calling 703-393-2141 ext. 400. Adults $15; Seniors $12; Children under 18, $8. Showtimes: W/Th/F @ 7:30 p.m.; Saturday @ 2:00 and 7:30; Sunday @ 2:00. Visit the show’s Events page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/488422361184704/.
