Christian Theatre Publications

CTP publishes contemporary Christian musicals that convey biblical values in an energetic and entertaining way. Our shows have been performed internationally by over 70 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).

Acts
View full size
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 can be produced as a two-act musical or a choral presentation with narration. Some groups may prefer to do only Act 1 which can stand alone as its own story. (Act 1 follows the first 9 chapters of the Book of Acts and concludes with conversion of the Apostle Paul.) The staged version of Acts requires a minimum cast of 22, while the choral version can be done with as few as 15. An accompaniment CD is available. More production details....
