Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare (May 2017)

Measure for Measyre What does it really mean to be just? How do I show mercy without encouraging more lawlessness? And can any of us – any of us at all – be truly said to be righteous?
In one of Shakespeare’s boldest plays, the clash between human justice and Divine mercy is beautifully and disturbingly explored, through the story of a judge who is not what he seems and a woman whose simple desire to do right suddenly becomes anything but simple.

Still Small's production of Measure for Measure raised awareness and funds to combat domestic violence. For more information on where to find resources and help, click here.

How I Met Our Father (Fall 2013)

Based on multiple true stories, this play explores the poignant, hilarious, and sometimes downright odd journey that is faith. The six actors portray dozens of characters of all ages and backgrounds, from Sunday School rebels to atheist-hippie-turned-seekers – and a few pigeons too.
The script was written and developed by its original cast based on stories entrusted to us by friends, family, the cast itself, and relative strangers.

This play is now available year-round; see Booking.

The Prophet Project(Spring 2013)

The first show performed by Still Small (before we even had a name!), The Prophet Project follows the story of God's love for humankind as told by the Biblical prophets. The play combined music and movement with a script constructed entirely out of the words of the Hebrew prophets, and brought together a cast of widely varying ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds.

This show's impact in arts ministry and community development was recognized with the 2013 Making a Difference in Christian Service Award and the Eldin Villafane Award from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary's Center for Urban Ministerial Education.
