Curtain in Five!- ONLINE STREAMING EVENT- Jan. 29-Feb. 1

Spiritual Twist Productions is excited to announce that we are launching our first online streaming event next weekend! 

Fri. January 29 (Noon)- Monday, February 1 (Noon)

Curtain In Five!

Based on an original concept by Becky Passner

Written by Becky Passner and Kaylee Long

Music and Lyrics by Kaylee Long

Directed by Barb Long & Kimberly Trautman

Curtain in Five! takes audiences behind the curtain and into the final rehearsals for West High’s production of Romeo and Juliet. Opening night is in four days, but as the show comes together, the cast and crew feel like they’re falling apart. When it’s easy to feel alone, unheard, and unsure, honesty becomes an act of bravery—will they find the strength to be vulnerable? Or will their weaknesses keep them apart? Take a step behind the curtain with us and find out!

Tickets for our online streaming event are on sale now through our ticketing website.

https://tickets.spiritualtwist.com

Please note that the event will be available for you to stream on one device within your household.  You may stop, leave the event, and return to finish viewing or view it multiple times, up to 48 hours from when you start. However, you must use the same device in which you start, to view the show. 

If you have any questions or concerns when viewing the event, please email tickets.stp@gmail.com for assistance.   

We hope you will join us & enjoy the show!

2021 STP Ticket and Seating Guidance

STP is pleased to announce that we are offering limited capacity seating for our 2021 regular season!  As we move forward, we ask for your grace and patience, especially with our house management, ticketing, and concessions teams, who are working hard to maintain a Christ-like atmosphere for every show.

As a religious organization, STP continues to adjust procedures to help limit viral spread. Please be aware of the following:

  • Tickets will be made by reservation through our ticketing system for specific seats in the theater.
  • There will not be a charge to reserve tickets for the show, but STP asks that patrons make a generous donation to support our ministry.
  • Audience size is limited to 150 patrons per night.
  • Seating is arranged with space between each chair. Upon arrival, guests may pull their chairs closer together to create more distance between themselves and the next group of patrons, if desired. Ushers will be available to assist upon request.
  • There will be an eight-foot distance between the audience and the center stage area.
  • Masks are encouraged for patrons attending this event, especially when physical distancing may be difficult to maintain (i.e. entering and exiting the building, during intermission).
  • Concessions will be available at this event. Outside food or drinks are not allowed.
  • If you are unable to use your tickets for any reason, please return them as soon as possible. Because of limited seating, there are others who will gladly take your seats. Please follow our ticket return policy.

STP understands that there are many patrons who may not be comfortable attending a live theatrical production at the current time. We are working toward offering online viewing for our 2021 shows. DVDs will be also be available. Information will be released through ticketing when these options are ready.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Spiritual Twist family,

I hope that you and your family are well and staying safe during these difficult times. I know that you have been following the news about the ongoing coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, and many of you have offered your prayers and support for our ongoing ministry. We truly appreciate you love during this time.  We are continuing to hold classes virtually, and it is a joy to see our students each week. Please know that our leadership is praying for both our STP families and patrons.

In the interest of safety, we closed the productions of Anything but Normal and Daddy Long Legs. We are hopeful that we might meet and somehow perform both of these shows, as our students are continuing to meet and rehearse in online classrooms.  We are thankful for those of you who have donated your ticket purchases back to Spiritual Twist Productions.  Your kindness has helped to cover some of our regular operating expenses and we are grateful.

Please consider Spiritual Twist Productions in your charitable giving; your donation will help sustain us through this crisis so that we are ready to re-open our doors as soon as it’s safe to do so.  All upcoming productions are contingent on state and local government recommendations, so we ask for your patience as the COVID-19 situation remains fluid.  DONATE HERE

As we wait, we ask that you pray for the health and safety of our families and community, wisdom for those in leadership, provision for those experiencing hardship, and comfort for those who mourn.  It is our privilege to pray for you all and we are leaning in and trusting God’s plan for this unusual season.

Our unique ministry is much more than a theater!  If you could see our students in their online classes, hear their heartfelt prayers for others, and watch them lean in to hear God’s Word during devotions, you would know how valuable our ministry is to our students.  We are offering hope and reassurance that God can put all the brokenness around them back together and reminding them that, even though times are hard, God is sovereign and we can TRUST HIM!!

During this difficult season, every donation is important.  If you can become a monthly donor at any giving level, it will make a difference.  One time donations of any amount will help sustain us.  We need you, our STP family, now more than ever.  Because of you, our doors will remain open, and we will continue to share God’s love and grace to both our students and our community.

Thank you for partnering with us to be a light that shines brightly for the Lord!

Grace and Peace,

Leslie Hanna

 

STP Plans for COVID-19

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your patience as I have been conferring with STP leadership regarding appropriate planning for the next several weeks.  There has been much prayer, many conversations, and discernment needed as we have considered many options as a response to COVID-19.  

Beginning tomorrow, March 14, 2020, all rehearsals and classes are canceled through March 30, 2020.  At this time, we will plan to resume classes on Monday, March 30, 2020.  As you are aware, many public activities have been cancelled or postponed in recent days.  Given the general concerns for the welfare of our students and families, we think this two-week stand down is an appropriate first step.  We will continue to monitor new developments such as instruction from government leaders and medical professionals prior to deciding next steps beyond March 30, 2020, and will update you with new information. 

We know that this will cause some concern among students about the status of their plays and rehearsals. We share that concern and want nothing more than to give everyone a chance to spread the Gospel on stage through their plays.  We are continuing to work through contingency planning given the necessary change in the schedule.  Again, we will update you as soon as we know more.  For the time being, however, we encourage each of our classes that have yet to put on their play to continue to work on lines, songs, and choreography at home during this period of time as we hope to stay as close as possible to our original theatre performance schedule.  For our Tuesday Homeschool class, please stay tuned for information regarding your show.  We are working on a plan to re-schedule as many performances as possible.  Please keep working on lines, songs, and choreography at home.  

For our classes that have already put on their shows, please pray for our classes and directors who have had their rehearsal/production schedule disrupted.  Please pray for peace for them – you know how excited you were about your show and how important every rehearsal is!  This is quite a curve ball for them.  They need all of our prayers and support! 

We are meeting this weekend to work on contingency plans and will email classes separately with any additional updated information.  Please understand that everything takes time, and we have a small staff trying to make all of these moving parts work together.  Please pray as we work through all of the details. 

Thank you for your grace.  God uses all things for His glory, so look for Him in every moment of this difficult time.  He is in the slowing down that is currently shaping our activities.  In the time that we are apart, may He reveal more of His love, faithfulness, and mercy.  May we find things to be glad about – even when it isn’t what we wanted or anticipated.  May we enjoy this precious time with families, and may God show us ways to reach outside and serve our neighbors.  

Blessings,
Leslie Hanna, Executive Director, Spiritual Twist Productions
