Buckman Performing Arts Center

The purpose of this play is to exhibit a musical presentation of the meaning of Spiritual Love and Sacrifice. The setting provides the audience an experience to see acting, music, dancing, and puppetry. The storyline centers a young girl named Libi who learns how Jesus gave his life for us through her mother Odelia; who recreates a visual painting of how Jesus suffered. This musically inclined journey challenges us to walk the footsteps Jesus faced traveling to Calvary and agonizing moments on the cross until his death. This fun-filled skit will set your souls to laughter as we comically illustrate a theatrical representation of how love saves a family and brought them together.
