St. Luke’s United Methodist Church has made it to Broadway, in a manner of speaking.

The church, at 222 NW 15 in Oklahoma City and 1125 E Danforth in Edmond, is in the midst of a summer series that explores faith themes in a variety of Broadway musicals.

Each week, guests from the New York stage perform songs from Broadway favorites in conjunction with the message for the day. The series started July 27 and has featured lessons and songs from “The Little Mermaid” and “The Music Man.”

“Many stories have been set on the grand stage of life that reflect a longing within each of us — the longing to ‘seize the day,’” said the Rev. Bob Long, the senior pastor.

Themes and performers set for the coming weeks at the church’s main campus in Oklahoma City are: Sunday, “Beauty and the Beast,” featuring Scott and Lindsie Guthrie; Aug. 17, “Les Miserables,” featuring Cyndi Steele-Harrod and Dalton Harrod; Aug. 24, “My Fair Lady, featuring Renee Anderson and Jennifer Marcum; and Aug. 31, “Newsies,” featuring the cast of “Newsies” from the Poteet Theatre.

Themes and performers planned for the Edmond campus are: Sunday, “Beauty and the Beast,” featuring James Shackelford; Aug. 17, “Les Miserables,” featuring Renee Anderson; Aug. 24, “My Fair Lady,” featuring Brandt Sterling; and Aug. 31, “Newsies,” featuring Michael Stewart.

Services are at 8:30, 9:40 and 10:50 a.m. in Oklahoma City and 11 a.m. in Edmond.
