WAVERLY– The Wartburg Players, a student-run theater organization, will perform Allan Sloane’s “A Parade of Witnesses” on Nov. 3 and 4.

Mark Fakler, of West Bend, will play Thomas Carlyle. The shows begin at 7:30 p.m. in McCaskey Lyceum.

In “A Parade of Witnesses” Martin Luther is confronted by supporters and detractors of his perspective on man’s relationship with the divine. A narration, provided by the Rev. Kathryn Kleinhans, Wartburg religion professor, further defines the historic discourse by tracing how Luther’s commentaries on theology, sociology and culture continue to influence political and religious discussion today.

Wartburg, a four-year liberal arts college internationally recognized for community engagement, enrolls 1,527 students. Wartburg is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and named after the castle in Germany where Martin Luther took refuge disguised as a knight during the stormy days of the Reformation while translating the Bible from Greek into German.
