Inviting… Nurturing… Growing… Serving…


Good News is Inviting

Start to think about that friend of new neighbor who might not have a church. Invite them to come with you. God may have already opened a door in their life; now they only need someone to make a connection.

Dessert Theatre

Virgil’s First Easter

by Eddie McPherson


Friday, April 26 & Saturday, April 27

6:00pm – 8:00pm


Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church

417 Salem Church Road
Mt Sidney, Virginia 24467


The Pleasant View and Salem Players will present Virgil’s First Easter on April 26 and 27 at 6:00 in Salem’s Imagine Center. This will be a dessert theatre with desserts, beverages, and the play all for $10.00. Contact Gary Flavin at Pleasant View and Linda Ellis at Salem for tickets. Profits will be donated to flood damage relief through Lutheran Disaster Relief.

As you may have noticed from the title, this is a new play with a different cast of characters, not the familiar Cricket County characters. However, it is written by Eddie McPherson who also wrote all the Cricket County plays, so you know it will be hilarious and suitable for all ages.

The play is about Virgil and Margaret, two innocents from the country who go into the first church they see in the city. This is the First Church of Springdale and the preacher is Reverend Davis, although the real power in the church is the “foremost hypocrite” alive in the town, Mrs. Tishwater.

This quote comes from Halgan and Tabor, two demons who are sent to the church by Old Scratch himself to make sure Mrs. Tishwater chases Virgil and Margaret away from “her” church. Her airheaded daughter, Tish, is another wonderful character, along with Mr. Wilson, the organist, Jason, a true Christian, and five other minor characters who have some very funny moments.

This is our biggest cast (15) and the most sets (5) we have had ever! And this is a new set of characters for you to meet and enjoy. We hope you will come out to support this worthy cause. You have been wonderful in the past, and we look forward to seeing you again.
