Thank you for your interest in our work at Fellowship for Performing Arts. We produce theatre. That means we tell stories, good stories, from a Christian worldview meant to engage a diverse audience. We are the creators of the national hit The Screwtape Letters, the award-winning Mark’s Gospel and new works such as C. S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce, Martin Luther on Trial and C.S. Lewis Onstage: The Most Reluctant Convert. We also produce The Listener’s Bible.
Each of these works have one thing in common—they attempt to engage the moral imagination to a point that it causes audiences to evaluate their assumptions. Theatre is meant to wake people up. FPA accomplishes its mission by selecting the right material and executing it to the highest level of excellence our budgets allow so that our works can play in the great theatrical venues around the country.
Finally, we ask people like you to help us. That is why we are called Fellowship for Performing Arts. It’s a fellowship of people who believe theatre and art from a Christian worldview can capture the moral imagination and influence culture.
I trust that this mission captures your imagination enough to want to find out more. If so, please contact us at giving@FPAtheatre.com for more information about supporting Fellowship for Performing Arts.
