Park Avenue Theater will present its first non-musical play, "Fish Eyes," next weekend.

"Fish Eyes" tells the story of some of Jesus' most memorable moments through the eyes of Peter and Andrew, two of his disciples, Joanne Robertson, Park Avenue Theater director, said.

"This funny, yet powerful, play helps us see a very human reaction to this mysterious, life-changing teacher."

The play stars James Robertson and Isaac Benson White.

Robertson said the "Fish Eyes" script, written by Virginia acting and writing team Ted Swartz and Lee Eshleman, had been on her desk for several years, while she waited for the right actors to come along.

"I have found them" in Robertson and White, she said. "The rehearsal process has been rewarding as the two actors have committed themselves completely to this project."

Performances are at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 7 and 8, at Trinity Presbyterian Church at Park Avenue and Copper Basin Road in Prescott. Tickets are $10 and admission is free for youths 18 and under.
