Now, in its 10th Anniversary Season, LampLight Theatre will premiere a new Easter musical production of the passion of Christ. The theatre began with its first production for the Easter season in 2005 in Fall Branch, TN. Since moving to Broad Street, the theatre has more than established itself as a quality Christian Family Theatre. What better way to celebrate this special anniversary than with the debut of “Son of Sorrows”, an Easter musical of the passion.
The new theatrical production has taken a great deal of work and vision. LampLight Theatre relies solely on a sizeable group of volunteers. Over 130 actors will don the stage this season with an additional 50 volunteers to act as tech crew, ushers, box office, and theatre courtesy staff. The musical has been in rehearsal since mid-January. Original songs, studio work, costuming, and set design combine to create an incredible display of the last days of Jesus Christ as this production comes to the LampLight stage.
“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 the 20th and will run through April 12th. 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. No performances on Mondays and Tuesdays. Doors will open one hour prior to the performances. Admission is a suggested donation of $10 Adults, $5 Students, Free for children 5 & under. “Youth Night” will be Thursday, April 2nd. Church youth groups and all other youth are invited to a mini-concert by Billy Wayne and Tattered Saints at 6:15 PM, prior to the performance.
