Members of Camp United Methodist Church will present the second showing of the Christian musical drama “Toybox” Sunday, April 27, at the church to raise money for the building fund.
The cast debuted the play Sunday, April 20, to an enthusiastic crowd that packed the church sanctuary.
Donna Williamson, who plays “Theresa,” in the drama, said other local churches’ dramas inspired her to seek out something Camp could do.
She did some research on the Internet and found Source Productions, which provides original contemporary Christian musicals by author Wayne Wright.
Williamson ordered “Toybox,” an allegory about human’s relationship with God, and thought it would be perfect.
She asked for volunteers from the congregation, and about 30 people signed up. They began rehearsing on Super Bowl Sunday, and on April 20, presented the play to a packed house in the church sanctuary.
Williamson herself took on the role of Theresa, the little girl who owns the toys, while various members of the church played toys ranging from soldiers and clowns to rag dolls and fashion dolls.
“Toybox” tells the story of how the toys are sometimes mistreated by Theresa, like people are mistreated by life, but they soon learn what makes them special is that they are made and cared for by the Toymaker.
Williamson says she plans to use Source Productions for another upcoming musical, “The King is Coming Back,” for children in July or August.
Tickets for the play are $5 each.
