FLOOD, a touring production developed by Wes Wikkerink at Woodland Christian High School is coming to Chatham Christian School on Friday, January 9 @ 7 p.m. It is a play about the trials of surviving WWII and the great flood of ’53 in the Netherlands, as well as the new obstacles of immigration to a vast and very different land. It is about faith and perseverance, honouring the legacy of those who have endured and sacrificed so much in order to start a new life for the sake of their children. The play received outstanding reviews when it premiered at Woodland in early December; the touring production is a slightly shorter version, modified for the Worship Centre at CCS.
There will also be a student matinee at 1:45. One of the reasons we selected Chatham as a tour destination, is because a couple of the scenes in the play are based on historical events that have come from “locals”, in particular a scene that takes place on the cable-ferry near Wallaceburg.
If you have lived through the war or the flood of ’53, we would love for you to come and be our guest. Everyone else is invited to come for free as well, though there will be a free will donation to cover touring expenses.
There will also be an opportunity for volunteers to participate in small ways during a VE Day celebration scene. Volunteers will receive brief instructions just before the show. Come early to get good seats.
