The Gospel According to...Sarah M. White

Education: BFA in Musical Theatre from Ball State University (Magna Cum Laude)
Who do you play in The Mysteries?: an Angel
Tell us about The Mysteries: It's an event, not like an ordinary play you go to sit and watch (but are any plays ordinary, really?). It celebrates and challenges these Bible stories that we teach our children, joke about at the bar, discuss in classrooms... There is little separation between the playing space and the audience. There is acting, singing, tutting, fighting, and FOOD!

Which company member is most likely to actually have lived during Biblical times?: Rebecca Rad
Which company member is most likely to be the Messiah?: Honestly...and this is gonna be a cop-out, but I'd have to say Colin, who plays Jesus. He's the nicest guy you'll ever meet!
Most likely to become an angel?: Lauren Hayes

Who's the most spiritual?: Jessie MacBeth
On the 8th day god said_____: I need a drink.

Which of the Seven Deadly Sins are you?: Since the invention of Netflix...Sloth
What's the biggest inside joke at The Mysteries?: "Be the microwaved baby."
What's your favorite moment from The Mysteries?: Any time humans see the angels...those faces...they make me laugh every time.
What is the most rewarding part about being a member of The Mysteries?: Getting to work on some incredible music written and arranged by David Dabbon. I still get chills every night.
Why should we come see The Mysteries?: To take a break from life and come party with us!
