STRATFORD - "Celebrate the Child" will be performed at 7 p.m. Sunday at Stratford Lutheran Church, 812 Teneyck Ave. Stratford. A light supper will be served at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall. The touring one-man play features professional Christian actor and speaker, Jonathan Swenson.
In this fresh look at the Nativity, Swenson portrays six different historical and imagined characters as each responds to the birth of Jesus. Through the eyes of these characters, both comical and serious, the audience is encouraged to celebrate the meaning of Christmas from fresh and meaningful perspectives.
Swenson has served as an ordained minister for nearly 20 years. He frequently performs in community and professional theater events, combining his musical theater passions with evangelical outreach. He has appeared at Theatre Cedar Rapids and is director and producer of Paraphrase Theatre, a faith-based theater company in Cedar Rapids.
