    "It Is Finished"

    This was the sixth word from the Cross. Now Jesus had accomplished all His Father's work and had paid the penalty for our sin.

    Tetelestai is a contemporary musical portraying the events of the most important week in the history of man.

    The players are from Upper Arlington Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio, and are appearsing here as part of a five state tour. The 35 member cast is composed predominantly of the church's senior high school youth group and their sponsors. It is accompanied by a six piece band. The musical is in two acts.

    Tetelestai is an attempt to communicate the significance of Christ's death for us today. It is intended as a testimony to the power of our risen Lord in our lives and as an ecouragement to follow Him more closely.

    We hope you will be able to be with us for the performance.

    Friday, March 21 - 8:00 p.m.

    Saturday, March 22 - 8:00 p.m.
