A biblical farce

The Mask & Wig Club's 110th annual production may do "justice to the stage and credit to the University," but what it does to the Good Book is another matter entirely. Upholding their illustrious tradition, the Mask & Wiggers drag "The Greatest Story Ever Told" kicking and screaming into parodyland, spoofing religious broadcasters, the Spice Girls (they're "The Christ Girls" in this photo), Schoolhouse Rock and current events along the way. And, of course, there's the famous chorus line.

  • BLASPHEMY? BLASPHE-YOU! Mask & Wig Clubhouse, 310 S. Quince St. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through March 27. Annenberg School Auditorium, 3620 Walnut St. Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21. Call 898-6791 for ticket prices and general information
