The community is invited to a special Good Friday performance of “The Living Last Words,” a dramatic musical experience commemorating the Seven Last Words of Christ, written by Ruth Elaine Schram, with music direction by Maureen Leonard, and stage direction by Susan Boulanger. This free performance will be presented Friday, March 25, at 6 p.m. at St. Theresa Catholic Church, 1041 Lyons Ave.

In this dramatic and powerful work, beautiful choral music combines with dramatic monologues as Schram imagines the responses of those who were present at the cross as Jesus died. Characters such as a contemptuous soldier; the crucified thief’s sympathetic sister; a scornful priest; the anguished shepherd; the heartbroken disciple searching for answers; and Mary, the grieving mother of Jesus, share how they are impacted by Jesus and the last words he spoke on the cross. Interspersed with moving solo songs and choral music, this dramatic musical experience brings to life the deep meaning of Holy Week.

Schram is a popular composer in commercial and church music.

“Her music is original and melodic,” said Maureen Leonard, St. Theresa’s music director.

For more information, call the parish at 530-544-3533.
