Enjoying fellowship at Central
Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) will celebrate the late Ed Delatte and the Westside Players at a special service on Sunday, November 25. In honor of his birthday, Ed and the drama troupe that he formed at Central, will be remembered during morning worship.
Ed was an actor in movies and one iconic television commercial, founder and artistic director of the NorthPark-based Dallas Repertory Theater, Associate Professor of Theatre in the Department of Dance and Drama at the University of North Texas, an instructor of drama at Hockaday School and El Centro College and founder of the Westside Players——but it was as church elder and friend to everyone at Central that Ed most wanted to be remembered.
In addition to fond memories, Ed left a monetary gift to the musical ministry of Central. The sanctuary’s beautiful grand piano is a result of Ed’s generosity and love for the church.
Join Central as the church re-unites the Westside Players, pays tribute to Ed and his legacy, and Central’s long-time support and recognition of the arts and the role they play in spirituality.
“Theatre both expresses and forms our feelings, beliefs and ideas. Whether about ourselves, the world, or God, we engage in this drama to re-member and re-create God’s work in and around us and convey our hopes and fears,” Rev. Ken Crawford said.
Following the service, a reception will be held in Central’s fellowship hall. All are welcome!
