Waypoint Theatre Company, southern Arizona’s premier faith-based live theatre organization, is pleased to present “Footprints of a Pilgrim”—a multi-media dramatic presentation of the live of Ruth Bell Graham, best-selling author and wife of evangelist, Rev. Billy Graham. 

The production will tour Tucson area churches beginning September through October 8 with the following scheduled performances:

Sunday, September 24, 6pm at Rincon Mountain Presbyterian Church, 8455 E.   

Tanque Verde Road (east of Bear Canyon Road)

Sunday, October 1, 6pm at Catalina Foothills Church, 2150 E. Orange Grove Road

(northeast corner of Skyline at Orange Grove Road)

Sunday, October 8, 6:30pm at Canyon Del Oro Baptist Church, 9200 North Oracle     

Road (northeast corner of Calle Concordia at Oracle)

Written by Mrs. Graham, and adapted to the stage by Lamb’s Players’ Artistic Director, Robert Smyth and Kerry Meads, “Footprints of a Pilgrim” embarks on the incredible journey of perseverance and strength that offers provocative and often humorous insights into family relationships and grace.  Through poetic dialogue, the story unfolds with Ruth’s humble beginnings as the child of missionaries in China, the separation from her parents in Korea, her near-expulsion from Wheaton College, insights into her marriage to the Rev. Billy Graham, and taking particular delight in becoming a grandmother.  Interlaced throughout Ruth’s story are favorite hymns sung by the cast that walks the audience along the steps in a life of resolute conviction.

Admission is free.  A love offering will be taken.  For more information, please contact WTC Artistic Director, Melanie David at (520) 742-9079, or visit Waypoint’s web site at www.waypoint-theatre-org .
