"Theatre for the Mind and Spirit" is coming to the Texas Baptist annual meeting Monday, Nov. 17. This is how Bruce Kuhn describes his dramatic presentations. Kuhn will be part of the morning and evening worship services at the Waco Convention Center.
Bruce's presentations bring Scripture alive. The words are literally from the biblical text, but Bruce helps them breathe with human passion. Below are 2 seven-minute videos of Bruce presenting a portion of the Gospel of Luke and Tales of Tolstoy, and there are other videos listed on his website.
A number of Texas Baptists saw Kuhn's presentations at Greater Dallas Movement Day 2014 and considered it a highlight of the event, which featured several nationally known speakers.
Bruce performed on Broadway in Les Misérables, in the national tours of Chess and Cotton Patch Gospel, and in the resident company of the acclaimed Actor's Theatre of Louisville in roles as diverse as D'Artagnan in The Three Musketeers and Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, as well as The Gospel of Luke.
He now takes his one-man shows to universities and churches throughout North America and Europe. His conference appearances include Urbana ('93, '96 and '00), Vision New England Congresses, Keswick Conventions in England, as well as outreaches with Michael Green and Franklin Graham.
Bruce has taught storytelling at Regent College in Canada, Oxford University in England, and for the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in nine countries. He received his classical training and Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington in Seattle, and later trained with Uta Hagen in New York City. He is husband to Hetty, a landscape artist, and father to Frits and Juliette.
