Photo: Celebrating with a little Shakespeare

Theatre in the Rough gave attendees at the Grand Opening Celebration for Holy Trinity Episcopal Church and McPhetres Hall on Sunday a sneak peek of the group's 20th season show William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Eddie Jones, left, was in the same play a decade ago. Hundreds attended the celebration marking the official reopening of a church that burned down in an arson fire and was rebuilt through years of cooperation between parishioners, local groups, businesses and other churches. Right Rev. Mark Lattime, eighth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska, officiated at morning Eucharists, then the facility was blessed by the bishop and vocal and choral music was performed. The celebration ended with an evening potluck at St. Brendan's Episcopal Church in the Mendendhall Valley.
