Lamb's Players Theatre
In medieval times, groups of Christian players would travel from town to town putting on mystery plays drawn from the Gospels. This theatre, founded originally for much the same purpose as the medieval troupes, carries that tradition brilliantly well, first as a street theater troupe and now as a permanent establishment. Now located in a beautiful building on Coronado Island , the theater also puts on performances at many other venues in San Diego. Performance times vary; call for current schedule. No children under five years old allowed please.
My husband and I have always been extremely impressed with the quality of the acting, singing, instrumental talent, and dancing presented by LPT. I cannot say, unfortunately, that I have always approved of the group's choice of material; certain plays have featured crude or foul language, far from modest costuming and behaviour, and obscene subject matter, none of which befits a Christian ensemble whose goal is, as I understand it, to represent and serve the Lord. It is with regret, then, that I must strongly recommend this drama troupe to you while adding a caveat urging you to choose your plays with caution so that you may avoid seeing or hearing anything that God does not wish you to put into your mind (Philippians 4:5, 8-9).
