When you walk into the Bonner Auditorium the set makes you feel as though you have stepped into a church. When the show begins with the choir singing, and the pastors walk down the aisle shaking hands, then you feel even more like you have accidentally walked into a church service. But instead, you are at the StageWorks Fresno production of the play The Christians.

The Fault In Our Stars has been my favorite book for a couple years now so I had high expectations for the movie. I knew that John Green had been telling his fans for about a year now how great the movie is, but I still did not have complete faith it would be amazing as the book.

In Heavenly, Pennsylvania, the Amish live in peace and harmony, or at least that’s the goal. Strife and problems can arise anywhere though. Claire Weatherly is English and not Amish. She owns Heavenly Treasures, a store that sells crafts made by the Amish. Unfortunately, the items that sell and are fastest to make are all small which means her sales totals are small too. She’s in danger of losing the store and is sick at heart about it. She hasn’t even told her Aunt Diane yet, owner of the local B&B for those seeking the Amish experience.

Being an unmarried, twenty-four year old woman in 1960 isn’t easy, especially when Eleonora “Ellie” Stone is struggling to establish herself as a professional reporter at The New Holland Republic newspaper. Now that her professor father recently died, Ellie knows that she can now never gain his approval and so she is on the brink of giving up and going back home to New York City. Fortunately for Ellie, but tragically for a young socialite, Ellie has the opportunity to make her career when she is the first reporter on the scene when hunters stumble over the body of Jordan Shaw.
