Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Broadway musical that inspired a generation. Based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew, this hit musical with book by John Michael Tebelak and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, will be a joyful theatrical celebration.
A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, are employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
