The Palos-Orland branch of the AAUW will be hosting guest speaker and retired professor, Kate Wulle-Dugan presenting “Oberammergau and the Passion Play” on Thursday, March 6, 2014 at The Presbyterian Church at 13401 S. Wolf Road, Orland Park for our annual Ethnic Dinner, a fundraiser in support of the Legal Advocacy Fund combating sex discrimination.
The historical Passion Play has been performed every ten years since 1634 to honor a vow made to God in return for sparing the town from the ravages of the Bubonic Plague. Nearly half the town residents are involved in the performance in some capacity. While in actuality this sixteen Act play takes all day to perform; you can enjoy a less lengthy summary of the event.
A dinner of authentic Bavarian food will precede the speaker at 6:30 pm., with the lecture to begin at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $30 for the meal and presentation. Tickets for the speaker only are $5 and payable at the door. Send checks to Joyce Icenogle, 19205 Boulder Ridge Dr, Mokena IL 60448 . DEADLINE to receive checks is Monday, March 3
The public is welcome to attend this event. Why not bring a friend and learn about this special place in German history?
