The Second Shepherds’ Play

December 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREDERICK CLASSICAL ENSEMBLE (FCE) is proud to announce the holiday production of its 2018/19 season, The Second Shepherds’ Play, adapted for modern audiences by Reiner Prochaska. The 2017 original production was directed by Jesse Marciniak.
This comedy with a Christmas message is sure to delight audiences of all ages with the hilarious antics of its quirky characters, as well as its Christmas songs. Be prepared to join a sing-along at the end of the play.
On Christmas Eve, three shepherds—Coll, Gyb, and Daw—are herding their flock on their organic sheep farm commune when Mak, who has a reputation for stealing sheep, visits them.
Mak succeeds in filching a ram, which he swiftly delivers to his wife, Gill, who is furious with Mak for exposing both of them to the risk of legal consequences. To protect their secret—and their Christmas dinner—Gill and Mak wrap the sheep in swaddling clothes and hide it in their cradle.
As the three shepherds solve the crime and retrieve their material possession, they learn an important spiritual lesson—right before they witness the miracle of Christmas first-hand.

The ensemble cast (in alphabetical order) includes:
Tatiana Bradshaw—Gill
Gloria Damaska—Mary/Angel
David Johnson—Daw (Third Shepherd)
Maverick McKee—Mak/Angel
Reiner Prochaska—Gyb (Second Shepherd)
Matt Provance—Coll (First Shepherd)
