The Children's Express Theatre of St. Augustine performs "The Lost Treasure of Shipwreck Bay." The play is an 5 act slapstick comedy that takes place on a Caribbean island. Captain Chris P. Cooky is the proprietor of an island excursion company. He is assisted by colorful locals (Coco Banana, Pearl Shellfish, Brad Krumbs) in searching for his long-lost family fortune. His great-great granddaddy's ship was carrying the treasure when it wrecked on Shipwreck Bay near an crumbling lighthouse. The play's theme is 'The Way of Love' base on I Corinthians 13. These young actors have demonstrated love for others in giving their time, effort and hard work in rehearsing for a month to perform this play for children within our community at VBS and they will be performing for Allegro Assisting Living residents.
The Way of Love
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
