Waynesville church performs live re-enactment of The Last Supper
WAYNESVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) —
With Good Friday just several hours away, a local church brought to life Jesus' last supper before his crucifixion.
The live production was held at First Presbyterian Church Wednesday evening.
"I'm trying to bring it all together at the end in terms of, you know, what's happening. Is Jesus gonna abandon us, or we're all gonna betray him? Who's going to betray him? Is he going to abandon us?" said Lee Galloway, who played Peter.
One by one, all the men who shared the last supper with Jesus onstage, posed those questions to the audience.
The performance before dozens of attendees took more than two months of preparation.
Jesus was, of course, the reason for the season—and play—but, Paul Koptak said, his 12 cast members helped bring the biblical performance alive.
"As the whole ensemble works together, we're trying to tell the story in a real down-to-earth way that gets into maybe reading between the lines, and trying to bring it into real-life experience," Koptak said.
