A Message From Max McLean

With theatres across the country closed indefinitely, at Fellowship for Performing Arts we’re exploring innovative, new ways to accomplish our mission of telling stories from a Christian worldview to engage a diverse audience.
FPA accomplishes this mission by selecting the right material and executing it to the highest level of excellence our budgets allow. Since the pandemic locked theatres down in 2020, we have live-streamed discussions on art and culture with thought leaders such as Os Guinness and produced a virtual dramatic reading of our hit play Martin Luther on Trial for more than 53,000 online viewers. A virtual presentation of C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce used green-screen technology for a more theatrical experience. It drew nearly 100,000 views and reached literally around the world. We have also finished production on our first film, The Most Reluctant Convert, adapted for the screen from our nationwide hit play by the same name!
We also pursue our mission with the help of people like you. That is why we are called Fellowship for Performing Arts. It’s a fellowship of people who believe art from a Christian worldview can capture the moral imagination and influence culture.
And you’ve never been more important. So far, we have canceled 27 productions nationwide. Ticket sales have dropped from 2,000 per week to zero per week.
I invite you to learn more about what FPA is continuing to accomplish and opportunities to partner with us. Please contact us at
