First Company

First Company is the Church's Theatre group.  They have been presenting major theatrical and musical performances here at FUMC for over 29 years in the Church's Theatre.  Creativity and passion for performing arts by everyone involved are the main keys to the success that First Company achieves in every show they present.  They typically present a production in late fall and early spring.  They also present living tableaus on Maundy Thursdays of Jesus' last days, a living nativity scene during several Christmas Eve Services and a melodrama in the summer, held at our Ranch in south of Divide, Colorado. If you have more questions, you may contact First Company at firstcompany@fumc-cs.org

(PLEASE NOTE that this is the play version adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher in 2015, and the story is different from the 1967 movie adaptation.)
 
A woman, blind from an accident recently past, meets people who come and go from her apartment, all with the intention of helping her and keeping her safe...or so it seems. A criminal genius plots to find a diamond-stuffed doll and will go to any length to take back what was lost. Who can Susan trust?
