A local couple has created quite a buzz throughout the area and even beyond, with their innovative productions of biblical plays.

Congregation's as far away as Wyoming have inquired about these creative productions and fans of the plays simply can't wait for the next performance.

David Lewis and wife Janea are currently working on their third play for the Woodville Grace Brethren Church drama department after the couple's previous two works were highly successful. They developed an affection for evolving biblical play scripts when they basically rewrote one on the fly while preparing for their first play at the church as actors.

The duo then decided to try their hand at writing scripts and through a collaborative effort, have reinvented the way many view church plays.

The Lewis' latest production "Angels of the Empyrean: The Son of the Horizon" won over audiences during the Christmas season with intricate dialogue and fresh perspectives, but also left them wanting more. A climatic, unsettled ending was followed by the impeding phrase "To Be Continued..." and audiences have been thirsty for a sequel ever sense.

The follow-up play will be unveiled this Easter with "Journey To The Empty Tomb" debuting on Good Friday.

Preparation for the production has been underway since early January and the Lewis' say they have spent countless hours building sets, designing costumes and practicing materials ever since.

The play is just about ready for the big stage now at Woodville Grace Brethren at 580 Woodville Rd. in Mansfield and will feature three performances on April 18, 19 and 20 at 6:30 p.m.

Pre-sale tickets are available at www.woodvillegbc.com or by calling (419)-524-8552, but hurry, only 180 seats are available for each performance and tickets are selling fast.
