Unity Players Coming Alive Theater Group

This Group is currently on hiatus.

The Unity Players Coming Alive Theater Group has been an active ministry of Unity of the Valley for many years to give live theater fans the opportunity to enjoy dramatic arts, games, and activities and to serve the congregation by presenting a wide variety of live productions.

Members of the group have served by presenting information and publicity through short costumed skits such as the dancing Christmas Stocking to introduce the Simple Giving Program. More elaborate and extensive dramatic performances included years of annual Christmas plays and musicals, a series of live “old-time radio plays” set in the fictitious town of Ordinary, Oregon, some dramatically enacted messages during Sunday services, and even a murder mystery play performed as dinner theater.

In March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic forced a sudden shutdown of rehearsals for a festival of short plays written and directed by Unity of the Valley members. In February 2023 the group re-activated with in-person meetings two Thursday evenings each month to enjoy dramatic activities and games (including trivia night contests) and readers’ theater style script reading sessions.

The group went on Summer Hiatus from June through September, with plans to resume meetings from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, starting on October 12th, 2023. 

Each session will include theater games and activities, with opportunities to learn and practice performance skills using voice and movement in both scripted and improvisational settings.

This group offers a fun opportunity to get to know other members of Unity who are theater fans. Visitors and new members are always welcome to join in the fun, to participate and to lead activities.
