Living Last Supper


2019 Leonardo da Vinci’s “Living Last Supper”

by Jalena Slack

The Seward United Methodist Church will host two performances, April 17 & 18th, 2019, of the dramatization of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. The performances, now in their 26th year, will be held in the sanctuary at 8:00PM each night. No tickets are needed, everyone is welcome to attend. A free will offering will be received to cover expenses and to benefit the Blue Valley Community Action Partnership. Call (402) 643-4156 for more information.

The living dramatization of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper is a worship service by the Reverend Earnest K. Emurian, adapted by Vikki Kotil. If you have never seen this reenactment, the twelve disciples all give a soliloquy describing their part in Jesus’s ministry. You can view a short YouTube video promotion that was filmed during the 2012 performance. There was also a write up in the Seward Independent Newspaper following the 2013 production. Many of the same cast members will be preforming in the 2019 production.
