Weekend Showcase: "Gloria"

This weekend you can catch a local theater company performing a revival of a homegrown production. A production of "Gloria" takes place this weekend at Maple Grove Covenant Church.

Don’t let the fact that the musical takes place in a church keep you from going to see this inspiring production.

"The show Gloria was written in 1982 by a class at Bethel College and we took it on tour. I went for about 3 years and met my husband," said Lori Bunce, co-director of the show and executive director of Bunce Backyard Productions.

Fast forward 34 years to today and two of the Bunce children are now performing in a run of the show. Sharayah Bunce plays Gloria.

"She's pretty normal. She's just like everybody else, living life, working, doing her job and she feels unsatisfied with what she has and with where she is in life, and she doesn't know why," said Bunce.

Gloria is living life in a high energy advertising career in New York.

"She just walks into this steam cloud and she doesn't know where she is. And there is a group of people that are there for her. They're meeting her there. They know her and they're there to help her," said Lori Bunce.

Gloria is sort of an every man dealing with the raw elements of humanity and searching for meaning. Trevor Bunce is one of the eight-member cast.

"Each character slowly throughout the show comes and presents their story of an encounter with God," said Trevor Bunce.

The characters' stories reveal to Gloria a loving God who is there and cares for her in her own life.

"Gloria" runs tonight and Saturday night at the Maple Grove Covenant Church. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 18 and seniors. Show times are at 7:30 p.m.
