Through community performances and a special Grandparents Day production, each year's play shares a bit of hope in Jesus and gives God all the glory for the opportunity to share His light with the community.

Grandparents Day 2021: “It’s Me? Mario?”

MarioThe 2021 Grandparents Day production goal is to create/produce a movie over two production days with all the lights, cameras, microphones, sound, fog, backdrops and love that a show would feature in any other year. 

Observing COVID Occupancy Limits at Howard Theatre and following CDC and LDH guidelines, the team will complete the 2021 production in recorded segments. So parents and grandparents can feel a part of the production, each segment will be livestreamed/recorded for later viewing.
