Martin: a life of Martin Luther

Categories: Events

Join us in the sanctuary at 6:00pm on Saturday and 9:30am on Sunday  for a live and original one man portrayal performed and written by Allan Lemke.

“Martin” recounts the life of Martin Luther, and includes a retelling of the Gospel.

The one-man portrayal is a result of a life long interest which runs approximately one hour and ten minutes including a ten-minute intermission.

“Martin” has been performed to wide acceptance in Lutheran as well as other churches in over 23 states nationwide.  Chaplains at a Lutheran university deemed the play “excellent”.  A Lutheran pastor commented, “What I liked about it was that I seemed to see Luther up there, not Allan Lemke”.

Lemke is a graduate of theUniversityofIowawith a B.A. in Dramatic Art. His directing credits include an internship at the Guthrie2 Theater, the second stage of the internationally renowned Guthrie Theater inMinneapolis.  He has directed a range of plays from Shakespearean to modern, and has worked with The Colorful Company of Theatricals for Christ and other Christian theater troupes.

Having recently moved toScottsdale,AZ, Allan, and his wife, Jenny, previously lived inCentral Oregonfor over 20 years with their two children Emily and Justin, now grown. The Lemke’s, as a team, also perform other plays that convey biblical truths.  Lemke states, “Christian drama is a great tool for relating the Gospel in a world that needs hope.”
