This March, Calvary University’s Theatre Arts department will present The Fantasticks, a moving musical comedy with an enduring message. A small cast of nine Calvary students is rehearsing for the performance of the enduring show, a charming account of the trials of love, parenthood, and gardening.
The story calls the audience to see value in both the joys and the sorrows of life. “Without a hurt, the heart is hollow,” sings the narrator, welcoming the listener alongside a handful of flawed, but loveable characters who learn to fully respect and appreciate life’s blessings and difficulties. As King Solomon says in Ecclesiastes, there is “a time to weep and a time to laugh.” Join us March 12-21 for a time of weeping, laughter, singing, dancing, sword fighting, and more in this and much more!
“Without a hurt, the heart is hollow”
Suggested age: 10+ (Due to comedic violence).
Tickets will be available February 1, 2021 at our Box Office online.
The Fantasticks is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com

Belton-Raymore Rotary Club Meeting Features Calvary’s Music Team
Last Wednesday, Calvary University had the opportunity to present a program at the Belton-Raymore Rotary Club’s weekly meeting.

The team presented three songs from their repertoire, featuring a rich instrumental blend and powerful vocal harmonies.
Lux Voces is a traveling music group of Calvary students and alumni seeking to praise God through their musical performances and to serve Christian schools and churches by sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through music and testimonies. Lux Voces is available to present concerts at local churches or schools in fall of 2020 and spring of 2021.
