The Passion of christ as seen through his family’s eyes
Lamplight Theatre is producing its 12th Easter musical of the passion of Christ this season, a show in which they feel is one of the best in LampLight history. “Son of Sorrows” premiered in 2015 and will don the stage one last season with another cast of almost 100 actors beginning this month. The authentic costumes, elaborate set design, new original songs, and a beautiful story will take you on a journey to Biblical Jerusalem in an incredible display of the last days of Jesus Christ.
“Son of Sorrows” is told through the eyes of Mother Mary and Jesus’ brothers and sisters. As Jesus embraces His destiny to suffer as the Messiah, conflict arises among His blood brothers who try to keep Jesus from getting himself killed. Family ties are tested and a mother’s heart is pierced as Jesus chooses to follow the will of His heavenly Father. From witnessing miracles and seeing Jesus’ compassion for the outcast, all doubt and confusion culminate at the cross. Who will be the ones to follow Jesus no matter the cost?
Come and experience the power of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection in “Son of Sorrows”. Performances will begin March 31st and will run through April 23rd. Shows will run nightly Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7 PM with additional matinees on Saturdays and Sundays. Saturday matinees will be at 2:00 PM and Sunday matinees at 3:00 PM.
