Living Last Supper


2020 Leonardo da Vinci’s “Living Last Supper”

by SUMC staff

The Seward United Methodist Church will NOT host performances of the dramatization of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper due to CDC guidelines for gatherings larger than 10 people. The 2020 performances would have been the 27th year. There will be a re-broadcast of the 2019 performance presented on our YouTube Channel on Thursday, April 9th at 7:00pm.

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.
