I’ve been honored (and humbled) to be able to shoot the dress rehearsal of the last 4 or 5 productions of Masquer Ministries, a phenomenal drama troupe who make their home at our church in Anaheim. Well, this week, I was able to get in the way of these very talented actors again, and photograph the dress rehearsal for their Easter production of “One Voice”: the story of the life and ministry of Jesus through the eyes of Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. Click the video above to get a sense of the passion and craft of this production. It’s about 6 minutes long…You won’t be disappointed.
It’s kind of funny… One of the cast members asked me the other night after the rehearsal what I thought of the show. As I stammered for a witty reply, I realized that I hadn’t really “seen” the show I had just photographed. I was so focused on capturing the fleeting expressions and moments that I didn’t really appreciate the scope of the production as a whole. But as I was putting together the above video montage of the images, the significance of the message really struck me, and it brings me to tears each time I watch it. This production will speak to someone over its six night run…I guarantee it.
Here a a few stills from the show:
