Join us in celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Oct. 28-29, 2017. The focal event for Reformation 500 is a festival worship service in the Gangelhoff Center on Sunday, Oct. 29, featuring LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, drama, music, and dance. Other exciting weekend events include the Tony-award winning play Luther, a juried art show, a display of Reformation archives, and the opportunity for students and families to visit campus.
This 500th anniversary celebration is co-sponsored by the Minnesota North and South Districts of the Lutheran Church―Missouri Synod and Concordia University, St. Paul.
Food Trucks and the Winget Student Life Center (dining hall) open and available from 12-3 p.m.
Bus parking and handicapped parking available.
An epic retelling of one of the great epochs in Western civilization, this play is an exploration of the larger-than-life personality of the great reformer himself: passionate, fiery, and earthy. At times, this Luther is the quintessential “angry young man,” fighting against all the great powers that govern his life. Then all at once he reveals himself to have the sensitivity of an innocent child desperately in need of love and protection. In writing that is often raw, direct and emotional – much like the legacy of the historical Luther himself – the play presents a vivid portrait of a man whose many contradictions and personal struggles nevertheless led to one of the great spiritual and political revolutions in human history.
TICKETS: $10 (Discounts available for students/seniors/children under 12/CSP students, staff, faculty)
Church groups of 10 or more receive $5 tickets.
