Description

CONTINUING a great tradition of over 20 years, Marion Correctional's Ministry of Theatre will again host our annual CHRISTMAS Play for members of the community.

This year’s play, JOY TO ALL GENERATIONS" playfully showcases a faithful but misguided pastor's drive to put on the "best Christmas Eve service ever".

There will be performances daily at 1:00 pm and 6:30 pm (NOTE: new evening time). Registration is through this website. There are several major new rules, so read very closely below!

Deadline to register is Wednesday, NOVEMBER 29th!

Please review for complete information...

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. How Do I Register? As before, groups may be registered only if you enter each person's name as a separate entry and ask for one (1) ticket each time. What does this mean, you ask? Each guest must register in Eventbrite and have his or her name listed in Eventbrite. This means that no single person can register for multiple tickets and expect to bring friends whose names are not registered in Eventbrite. If a guest’s name is not found on the list of registered guests, he or she will NOT be permitted to attend. If you are the person responsible to register anyone other than yourself, including groups, you should register yourself asking for one ticket; then go back to the registration and begin registering each of your guests, using their names, and so on. You may email the organizer and we will send you a "cheat sheet" for step-by-step instructions.

  2. Is There A Minimum Age? NEW Protocol: No child under the age of 12 will be permitted to attend the play. All children (12 yrs. to 17 yrs.) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian OR have a notarized letter with the parent’s permission to attend clearly stated. All children be registered by name and must have a Birth Certificate present to enter.

  3. Do I Need An ID? All Guests must have a photo ID to enter (except children who will instead use a copy of their Birth Certificate).

  4. How Do I Thank The Actors? NEW Protocol: Applause only... Guests will not be permitted to have contact with the inmates. At the conclusion of the program, guests will not be permitted to hug, shake hands, etc. with inmate play participants.

  5. My Friend/Loved One Is At MCI, Can I See The Play? NEW Protocol: Inmate family and friends (including anyone on the inmate’s visiting list) will only be permitted to attend at the Wednesday performances. Inmate family or friends who register for any other day will be denied entry.

  6. Is There A Deadline to Register? For the Easter play, all guests must be registered by Wednesday, November 29th. This rule applies to the guests of MCI staff as well.

  7. Who Can Come? Any community member. Former offenders and those under PRC/Parole status require special permission to attend. Email the organizer or call the facility.

  8. Do I Need A Ticket? You do NOT need to bring a paper ticket from Eventbrite. We get the names for our event Gate Pass direct from Eventbrite. You do not need to bring your ticket, but may print it out as a reminder for yourself.

  9. When should I get there and where may I park? Please arrive 45 minutes prior to the start to allow time for processing into the facility. There is room for car and bus parking. NOTE: OUR ENTRANCE BUILDING IS BEING RENOVATED! You will process in though a trailer next to that buidling. There is no restroom in the trailer so you will not have access to restroom facilities until you have processed inside the facility. Plan ahead!

  10. Can I Help Out? Please spread the word about us! Also, donations are needed and accepted! You may bring a Money Order or check made out to "MCI Ministry of Theatre".

Who can answer my questions?

MCI Chaplain Tim Smith (timothy.smith@odrc.state.oh.us).
