Soliloquy of the Twelve
You are invited to experience the Last Supper through the minds of the disciples. One by one, each disciples ponders their relationship with Jesus and questions if they are the one to betray him.
Call for Actors
Every other year First UMC presents a re-enactment of the last supper on Maundy Thursday. We’re looking for 12 men to portray the 12 disciples. As a disciple of Jesus, you would sit in the pose of DaVinci’s “Last Supper” painting, and one by one each disciple delivers a short soliloquy of what may have been their thoughts as Jesus says one of them will betray him. The soliloquies do not have to be memorized, but learning it well will certainly help in your delivery.
This is a highlight of our Lenten remembrances of the life of Jesus, and even if you haven’t done any “acting” before, please consider participating in this meaningful experience. God called imperfect people to his service, and Jesus’ followers came from many walks of life from the demon possessed, to prostitutes, to tax collectors, to zealots, and to fishermen.
