A contemporary musical based on the book of Acts.
The story follows an eclectic group of fishermen, Pharisees, and vagabonds as they "turn the world upside down." They had left everything to follow Jesus of Nazareth, and He completely transformed their lives. Despite tremendous opposition and persecution, the young community of believers grew and spread all over the world. Their story continues to this day.
Through drama, dance, and song, a unique cast of students gives biblical characters a face as they tell their incredible stories of faith and perseverance. Acts ultimately points to the power of God and what He can do through ordinary people.
was originally produced at Covenant Life Church
