The Last Days of Judas

The Gold Camp Players community theatre group presents The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, written for adult audiences by Pulitzer-prize-winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis.

This provocative play is a story that will stir the mind and explore the true meaning of forgiveness. The play allows the audience to examine conflict, assumptions, and the prejudices we all carry – which are often a common part of the human condition.

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot will be performed on March 2, 3 and 9, 10, 2018, at 7 p.m. and March 4 and 11, 2018, at 2 p.m. on the stage of the Historic Homestake Opera House (HHOH) at 313 W. Main St., in Lead.

The darkly comedic drama will challenge the audience to rethink their own beliefs about the most notorious, mysterious sinner in the Bible. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult due to themes and language.

The cast of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot includes: Rob Andresen, Chelsie Bauer, Kurt Bauer, Tina Samuelsen Bauer, Cami Dohman, Joel Edgar, Dustin Floyd, Laura Floyd, Jay Jacobs, Lindsey Lothrop, Andy Mosher, David Scherer, Phelan Scherer, Lindsy Thomas, Moses Ward, Quinn Ward, and Jesse Ziebart. The play is directed by Rose Speirs and Sierra Ward is the stage manager. This play is produced in cooperation with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York, NY.

Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for HHOH members, $5 for students 17 and younger.
