EVANGELIZATION THROUGH ENTERTAINMENT
Tom and Karen Quiner pursue a ministry which they call “Evangelization through Entertainment” using the art form of musical theater.
Mr. Quiner has written and produced 9 faith-based musicals over the past sixteen years. "The Fire and the Mercy" is his latest endeavor and was written in celebration of the year of Mercy. It was first performed in spring of 2016. He has expanded the project and will be reprising it again this Easter season.
THE FIRE AND THE MERCY
The Pentecost Musical
The musical starts and ends with the drama of Pentecost.
In between you'll experience God's limitless mercy through the eyes of Peter, Stephen, and Mary Magdelene. And you will experience Mother Mary's last moments with her Son before his ascension.
You will be moved and you will be entertained. We want to keep this an intimate experience so seating is limited at each performance.

ABOUT THE LAST MUSICAL
“The ’new evangelization’ that Pope John Paul II called for takes many different forms. The Wedding at Cana musical, performed as Catholic dinner theater, is a fresh, new way to evangelize. Our church hall was packed with parishioners and non-parishioners who were evangelized through entertainment. We experienced scripture, so to speak, from the ‘inside out.’ This was a powerful, shared experience for our community. I recommend it.”
JON LEONETTI, CATHOLIC SPEAKER & AUTHOR
