Sherwood presents ''Noise"

December 13, 2002

Albany- Music, singing and dancing. That's Noise... Sherwood Baptist Church's Broadway style Christmas production.

"We actually wrote a script that has several different vignettes in it. It takes you through many different people's lives from a college group, to a working mother, to a family scene that's a very dysfunctional family, and then to an elderly man who's for the first time found himself alone for Christmas," says script writer Lisa Arnold.

"It's such a busy time of year and the word noise just seemed to fit the description of all the things that go on that distract us, and all the different things going on like last-minute shopping, and all of those kinds of things," adds music minister Mark Willard.

Not only does Noise talk about real life issues, but it also features some well-known music. "A lot of people will know the songs by Huey Lewis and the News and the Eagles for example," claims Willard.

When the writers developed Noise they wanted something not only for their members, but also the entire community. "No matter how much money you have or where you live these are common themes we all come across," explains Arnold.

Even the actors say the production hit close to home. "Especially during the holidays there's so much noise with family and work, and trying to get things done. It tended to bring me down a little bit, and to focus on family and things that should be close to our heart," says Mandy Kavanaugh who plays Mona.

While noise may be filling the ears of the audience, its the true meaning of Christmas the cast wants them to take home.

There will also be a performance both Saturday and Sunday nights at 7 pm. Tickets are free and seating is first come first serve. Free refreshments are also served following each performance.
