The XC Dramatic Arts Department presents:
Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall rabbit… and so is the premise of Xenia Christian’s fall play. Join us on Friday and Saturday, November 7 & 8 @ 7:00 p.m. for the ‘rest of the story’. The comedy stars (in alphabetical order): Ryan Arsenault, Connor Bryant, Tori Kocher, Haakon Nelson, Morgan Philips, Garrett Rowland, Andrew Shaeffer, Caleb Stover, Rachel Terrell, Marissa Thorson, Anna Weaver and Sarah Williams. Student Assistants are Louisa Ewing and Nicole Terrell. Ticket will be on sale beginning Monday, October 20 in the Main office in Lincoln. Ticket Prices: $7 for Adults, $5 for Students and Senior Citizens. (XC students and faculty/staff receive one complimentary ticket to the performance of their choice).

We are continuing a tradition at Xenia Christian. Each year the Senior Class and the Kindergarten Class have a tree planted on the XC campus. As part of the dedication ceremony, the seniors (Class of 2015) will give the kindergarteners (Class of 2027) notes of encouragement. As the tree grows, it will be a reminder to the students that as we grow physically and mentally, we should also be growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
