MOUNT VERNON — “God works in mysterious ways,” a lesson well learned in the Christian comedy play, “Whose Angel is it, Anyway?,” written by Jeffrey Watts, and produced by the Phoenix Force Drama Ministry.
For a want-to-be angel, earning her wings is serious business and for misfit angel Eugene (Kaitlyn Goehring), it is the chance of a lifetime. And all she has to do is deliver one message.
In this humorous tale of mistaken identity, Robin Clark (Jared Wise) becomes the unsuspected, and very unlikely receiver, of a birth announcement — his coming baby. Through his experience, he learns firsthand what it means to trust in God.
“It will all work out for the best, I promise,” said Eugene, and it does.
Through humor and laughter, one right message to the wrong person shows just how much God works in mysterious ways.
An exceptionally talented cast of first-time performers and experienced members set the scene to deliver a message of faith and trust in God.
Cast in this production are: Kaitlyn Goehring as the angel Eugene, Iulia Mirzac as the angel Michael (also as the UFO club member), Jared Wise as Robin Clark, Lacey Cromwell as Cindy Clark, R.J. Oosting as Dr. Mitchell, Rachelle Goehring as Dr. Stern, Erica Browning as Billy Putnam, Sydney Tilmant as Monica Smith, Jess Oosting as Ali Baba/Reporter, Crystal Goehring as the priest, and Marcus Oosting, extra. The lighting and sound is coordinated by Bobby Oosting.
The Phoenix Force Drama Ministry started in 1998 by Melissa Midcap of Fredericktown as a way to reach youth through drama.
