LampLight celebrates love with ‘Imanol’s Epiphany’

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
Café, across the street from the theatre. Performance-only tickets will also be
available.

Doors open at the Stir Fry Café banquet room at 6
p.m., and dinner will be served promptly at 6:30 p.m. The cost for dinner and
the performance is $30 per person. Reservations are required. Call the box
office for dinner menu options.

For the performance only, show time is 7:30 p.m.
Admission is a suggested donation of $10 for adults, $5 for students and free
for children 5 and younger.

Additional performances of “Imanol’s Epiphany”
will be held at 7 p.m., Feb. 15, 21 and 22. Matinee performances will be held
at 2 p.m., Feb. 15 and 22, and at 3 p.m., Feb. 16 and 23. Doors will open one hour prior to
