Billy Wayne Arrington says LampLight Theatre’s

newest production is perfect for Valentine’s Day.

“Imanol’s Epiphany” premieres Friday, and

Arrington, LampLight’s producer/director, says it is a wonderful love story.

“It’s a magical metaphorical production told in

‘Cirque Du Soleil’ fashion,” Arrington said.

Fans of “The Chronicles of Narnia” and “Lord of

the Rings” will appreciate this uniquely staged show that uses no spoken words

and, Arrington adds, will stir everyone’s imagination.

“Imanol’s Epiphany” is told through a display of

innovative, creative arts, including an extraordinary spectacle of the creation

in black light that encompasses the entire theatre.

“It’s a very creative show. There’s no spoken

word, but there is lots of movement, acrobatics and gymnastics,” Arrington

said. “It’s a great love story. The greatest love is unconditional love and

this shows God’s unconditional love for us

— that regardless of what we do, if we fall, if we fail, we’re still

loved. The story is just beautiful.”

“Imanol’s Epiphany” is a flight of the

imagination. Imanol is called upon by The Father to look upon the world. His

prodigious journey allows the audience to experience the creation of the world

to the fall of mankind. The fantastical adventure leads to the Kingdoms of the

Magi, where audiences will learn just how far men have fallen from what God

intended for them. When all hope seems lost, this mesmerizing account ends with

Imanol’s great epiphany.

“Imanol’s Epiphany” premieres on Valentine’s Day

with a dinner theatre performance catered by BJ’s Catering. A full-course

dinner and desserts will be served in the upstairs Banquet Room of Stir Fry
