The Gospel of Mary Magdalene: Friends of Sophia fall program

 — Oct. 24, 200624 oct. 2006

A one woman musical entitled “The Gospel of Mary Magdalene” will be performed on Tuesday, October 24, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. in the St. Andrew’s College Lounge. The musical play was written and composed, and will be performed, by Angie Tysseland. In the musical, the story, spirit, and songs of Mary Magdalene are sung and played with a contemporary spin. The original music is at times meditative, and at times quirky and lively.

Angie Tysseland is the director of The Refinery Arts & Spirit Centre and the Refiner’s Choir of St. James Anglican Church, Saskatoon. As a composer of musical theatre, she has written music for “New York is Big but this is Biggar” with Tom Bentley, “The Girl Who was Saved by Jazz” and “Tune Town” with Don Kerr, “The Dreamriders” with Margaret Epp, as well as her own “The Rev” and “The Colour Sessions.” Sacred music credits include “The Refiner’s Fire,” “The Downtown Mass” and “Walking to the Light.” A multi-talented woman, Angie also sings, plays in jazz groups, and music-directs for theatre.

This musical is part of the 2006-2007 program for the Friends of Sophia, an interdenominational group of women based on the university campus which is dedicated to nurturing Christian feminist spirituality through educational opportunities, shared experience, and liturgical celebration. Watch for the January event featuring Dr. Barbara E. Reid, O.P. on January 28 & 29, 2007.
