“The Witness and The Judge” is an original show written by local playwright Ray Linebaugh. It’s the story of a cynical old and retired Judge, Jonathan Crowe, and a visit from a mysterious “Young man”. Crowe is guided through the scenarios depicting the life of Jesus Christ and search for Truth. This production utilizes a multi-generational cast, singers and dancers to deliver a message of hope. There are moments of humor, but also of reflection as Crowe makes this journey. “The Witness and The Judge” has been staged before in Fremont County and is pleased to welcome back several of the original cast members, including George Casias as Jesus. It is a timely show with the approach of Easter just a few weeks away.


This was a powerful and well-attended play put on by Harvest Players and the Rialto Theater. It took a great deal of hard work on the part of the directors and cast to put this together.
