‘Messiah on the Frigidaire’
“Messiah on the Frigidaire,” a play by John Culbertson, opens Friday, January 28 at the Windsor Community Playhouse, 561 E Garden Drive, Unit A, Windsor.
The small town of Elroy, South Carolina, is thrust into the evangelical spotlight when what appears to be the image of Jesus (or possibly Willie Nelson) appears on a refrigerator in a trailer park. The discovery sparks a frenzy of conflict, community, and good old-fashioned commerce and fun.
The piece will be performed at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings and at 2 p.m. on Sunday through February 13.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at windsorplayhouse.org, or by email or call the box office to reserve tickets and pay at the door. Call 970-674-1790 or email email@example.com.
Windsor Community Playhouse follows county mask mandates. At this time, masks are recommended, but not required, to attend WCP performances. However, the board of directors designated the show on Sunday, February 13, as a performance that requires a mask.
Bobcat Goldthwait of “Misfits and Monsters” and “World’s Greatest Dad” and Dana Gould of “Stan Against Evil” and “The Simpsons” will share the stage in a unique “stand-up comedy duet” at 7pm and 9am. 30 p.m. Saturday, January 29 at the Stanley Hotel Concert Hall, 333 E. Wonderview Ave., Estes Park.
