You can still watch the Fall Festival theater production, No Cross, No Crown – Covid Edition, on Bethel's YouTube channel.

It should surprise no one to learn that the Fall Fest play needed to move from live stage to online. While many events had to be be canceled, a few were able to go on, just virtually.

One such was No Cross, No Crown – Covid Edition, written and directed by Bethel Instructor of Theater Karen Robu.

Bethel will celebrate the 50th Fall Festival Oct. 3 and, as with many events this year, it will look a little different.

The most visible change will be no booths, vendors or entertainment on the Green.

Instead, planners are organizing several smaller in-person and virtual events, "still committed to being a community of Threshers," said Brad Schmidt, director of alumni engagement.

On campus, there will be the Fall Fest football game vs. Southwestern College at 6 p.m. in Thresher Stadium.
