Just Give Em The News - Private Event

Spruce Lake Retreat

Just Give ‘Em the News, an original, delightfully askew, musical take on the first Christmas. Jeff and Ted weave original songs, inspired piano playing (Jeff, not Ted) and comedic theater around a new look at familiar Christmas stories. So what did Zechariah sound like before his temper rendered him mute? Did Gabriel ever tire of needing to tell people to “Fear not?” Did Mary ever…? Bring your own questions to a performance. Perfect for Christmas banquets.

This performance is a private event for the staff at Spruce Lake. It's a great way to tell the story and entertain your employees and guests. Call us today to book this show for your special gathering.

Boots, Buckets and Barrows

Hesston Mennonite Church, 309 S. Main St., Hesston, KS 67062

Boots, Buckets & Barrows, is coming to Hesston Mennonite Church on Friday, January 31, 2020 at 7:00 pm in Hesston, KS. This event is part theater/ part auction, to raise awareness, funds, and volunteers for Mennonite Disaster Service. Please come prepared to bid on auction items or make a donation! All funds raised will benefit the work of MDS restoring homes and hope for those affected by natural disaster.

Featuring the show, The Jesus Stories, created and performed by Ted Swartz and Jeff Raught, with original songs by Jeff. There are many Gospel stories of Jesus gathered around tables. There was food to eat and food for thought, exploring who was invited to those tables and who showed up. The miracles of Jesus were sometimes ordinary stories with extraordinary results.

Ted and Jeff offer a fresh look at the Gospel stories and discover that when uncorked, these stories pour out sparkling drops of laughter Jesus must have found in the people he met along the way. Ted and Jeff have gathered these stories, mixing in a pinch of humor, a dollop of song and several servings of pasta with some cheese and wine on the side. Bon Appetit!
