The Easter season is approaching and there is no better way to celebrate than to watch the story of the passion of Christ come alive on stage. Lamplight Theatre is premiering a brand new Easter musical called “Redemption’s Song.” This production promises to bring great quality family entertainment with a timeless message. The authentic costumes, elaborate set design, original songs, and a beautiful story will take you on a journey to Biblical Jerusalem in an incredible display of the compassion of Christ toward the most rejected in life.
“Redemption’s Song” is told through the eyes of the outcast, both rich and poor. As Jesus embraces His destiny to suffer as their Messiah, the most rejected are drawn to His words of hope and redemption. Tax collectors including Zacchaeus and Levi, along with people of ill repute like Mary Magdalene, find themselves broken before a loving Savior. The backstories of other obscure characters in the Bible like Susanna, and Joanna unfold in this powerful musical narrative. From witnessing incredible miracles and seeing Jairus’ daughter raised from the dead, these misfits become believers. Their redemption comes at a price as their dreams are crushed on a cross at Calvary. Little do they know…their Hope will rise again.
Come and experience the power of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection in “Redemption’s Song.” Performances will begin March 16th and will run through April 8th. 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.
