McNair Wilson to perform The Fifth Gospel at HC

FOR RELEASE
2004-03-18
Huntington, Ind.— What if God came to earth and walked among us? What if it has already happened? McNair Wilson's fast-paced, 28-character one-man play, The Fifth Gospel, is a hilarious and poignant retelling of the gospel story. Wilson will perform this show in the Zurcher Auditorium of the Merillat Centre for the Arts at Huntington College on Tuesday, March 23, 2004. The curtain is set to rise at 7:30 p.m. The performance is open to the public at no charge.

Wilson has performed The Fifth Gospel to critical acclaim over 1400 times at colleges, conferences and churches everywhere. The Fifth Gospel challenges ardent believers, earnest seekers and sincere skeptics.

“This show is an imaginative interpretation of what Christ would have looked like at different stages of his life,” said Bill Fisher, dean of Christian faith and life at Huntington College.

C. McNair Wilson lives his life at the confluence of faith and art, a bustling intersection these days. Wilson – a San Francisco Bay Area resident – has worked professionally as actor, director, teacher, playwright, Disney Imagineer, coach to public speakers and corporate executives, author, cartoonist, magician, and ventriloquist (retired). He has traveled the world (33 countries) and has performed his two one-man plays, The Fifth Gospel and From Up Here at colleges, conferences and churches of every flavor. He has taught his trademark IMAGINUITY process (now on video) for clients as diverse as IBM & the Salvation Army.

Wilson will serve as guest director of Huntington College’s theatre performance of Alice in Wonderland, April 15-17, 2004.
