HumanistsMN Celebrates Winter Solstice 2019 in Secular Style

We honored the “reason for the season” in December with dinner, entertainment, and singing at the festively decorated First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis. Big Oil (Marcy Woodruff Hillerson), Big Ag (Suzy Bancroft), and Big Auto (Meline Juarez) abducted Father Winter (David Guell) in a “mummers play” written by Audrey Kingstrom.

Other cast members included Sonia Aaroe, Suellen Carroll, Heather Hegi, Mary McLeod, Christine Retkwa, Summer Sasarita, Jeff Spencer, and Mitchell Thompson. David Guell and Erica Klein performed solo acts.

Attendees contributed about $1,000 worth of gift cards and goods to The Bridge for Youth, which provides services to help young people and families through tough times.

    The play went over well, and was fun to perform. But with so many similar shots of the cast, I’m a bit surprised that you didn’t include at least one wide shot, to include the Greek Chorus. They had a big speaking part, actually.

    1. Your wish is our command. We found and added a photo of the Greek chorus.
