A near-capacity crowd gathered at Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Church on July 25 to witness a powerful play, “At the End of Time.” This play, based on Matthew 24:9-14, dramatizes the effect of faith, love, and commitment to Jesus. The story line features Matthew and Alice, two teenagers persecuted for their beliefs in addition to noncompliance of a National Sunday Law.

The cast, comprised of 19 actors and four understudies, came from Plantation Church. The play incorporated live acting and filmed scenes on a wooden revolving stage. Volunteers from Brazilian Temple Church in Oakland Park joined producers and actors in stage construction.

Production of the filmed scenes took two days with a professional crew that included three nonAdventist volunteers. Use of the Texaco gas station in the film was donated by the owner who is of Jewish faith. The estimated donated cost for film production was $9,500. Friends, family, and producers donated other expenses for the play. Collin Williams was the technical director and Nate Palmer was the executive producer.

“This play kept every person in the audience on the edge of their seat,” said Jeffrey Thompson, pastor, Ft. Lauderdale Church. “Congratulations to our young people for sacrifice, sense of mission, and belief in prophecy.”
