In this From the Archives report from former KETK reporter Jarrett Hale spoke with Rose Heights Church members who were on stage and in the audience as the biblical scenes unfolded

“It’s a humbling experience to play Christ because who on Earth is worthy to play such a part,” said the actor portraying Jesus Christ. “My prayer is that the love of Jesus Christ shines through me, through the words that I speak.”

Both actors and audience members hoped that people would take something more away from the event than just entertainment.

“It’s a very somber, serious message, even though there’s some humor mixed in with it but we trust people will really be touched and changed because of what they see and experience with the music as well as the storyline,” remarked one audience member.
