Opening Night for the CMH Musical

For CMH musical cast and crew, opening night means not only nerves, jitters, and an excited crowd...it means a prayer service and a St. Blase blessing of throats.

Did you know that the patron saint of actors is St. Genesius of Rome?

St. Genesius Prayer for Actors

Dear Genesius, in the year 303, when you were still a pagan, you once ridiculed Christ while acting on the stage. But, like Saul on the road to Damascus, you were transformed by Christ's powerful grace.

You rose bearing witness to Jesus and died a great martyr's death. Intercede for your fellow actors before God that they may faithfully and honestly perform their roles and so help others to understand their role in life and thus enabling them to attain their end in heaven.

Amen.



Break a leg!
