Fisherman's Community Theater: Inspiration and entertainment
The play “Mysterious Ways,” written by Sandy Boikian and directed by Stanley Mikles, will be presented Thursday, June 27 through Saturday, June 29 in the Old Fire Hall in Crosslake on County Road 66.
“The play is about two roommates. One is Alex, a college English professor, who had something happen in her life which made her hate God,” Mikles said. “She has made it her mission to destroy the faith of Christian women throughout the play. Paige, her new roommate, is a missionary and a nurse who works at a local hospital.”
Performances start at 7 p.m., tickets will be sold at the door beginning at 6 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The play is free for children under 12, $6 for adults and $5 for those over 65. Proceeds from the play will go to the Crosslake Food Shelf.
The play is sponsored by the Crosslake Evangelical Free Church, also known as “The Log Church.”
The Fisherman’s Community Theater was founded three years ago by Mikles, his wife Sheila Mikles, Eileen Kulseth and her husband Tim Kulseth. The theater is performing for the second time after having to cancel the play the previous year.
As for the future of the Fisherman’s Community Theater, Mikles, who is also a biology teacher in Hill City and a pastor for Narrows Community Church in Outing, would like to see the theater grow and become more involved with additional plays.
“We could use the help from anyone who would want to join,” he said. “We are looking to expand our productions beyond only the summer and into the winter and fall as well.”
Mikles, however, believes when it comes to possibly moving the productions to a different location with a permanent stage, the opportunity will present itself. “We take it one step at a time as God wants us to step,” he said. “He hasn’t told us what He wants to do yet.”
