Christian Theatre Publications

CTP publishes contemporary Christian musicals that convey biblical values in an energetic and entertaining way. We have licensed over 100 productions to schools, churches, home school groups and community theatres (see Past & Upcoming Shows). After doing Pilgrim, one director commented, "It's so difficult to find really quality, redemptive material. The story was awesome, and I know the students will have these truths in their hearts for the rest of their lives. It was an awesome gospel message, the most powerful story we have told from our stage to date." (Wendy Weiss, Westwood Community Church).
Actors and directors share highlights, promote their productions and recount their experiences with CTP shows on the new Promos & Testimonials.
Esther

We license two versions: full-cast for groups of 25+ and a smaller-cast version for groups of 10–15. It includes 15 original vocal numbers with rental of full piano and vocal scores.

Acts a City Rising
Based on the Book of Acts, this musical follows an eclectic group of fishermen, Pharisees, and vagabonds as they "turn the world upside down." Acts gives biblical characters a face while telling their incredible stories of persevering faith. They left everything to follow Jesus of Nazareth, and He completely changed their lives. We offer 90 minute and 2-hour versions of the script, and groups desiring a shorter version can produce only Act 1 (60 minutes) which concludes with the conversion of Paul. Acts requires a minimum cast of 22. An accompaniment CD is available. More production details....
