Messiah College Department of Theatre and Dance presents As it is in Heaven
Written by Arlene Hutton
Directed by Daniel Inouye
As it is in Heaven is set in a thriving religious Shaker village that is, well, shaken up after newcomer Fanny joins and some of its young female members begin to see visions and claim spiritual gifts. These so-called gifts cause the young girls who experience them to dance and twirl, see angels, shout out in praise, and fall into awed trances, completely upending and upsetting the community. The village must decide: Is this a resurgence of the original Shaker celebration of the glory of God, or mere flights of fantasy manufactured by Fanny and the other girls?
