A contemporary musical based on the book of Acts
Acts gives biblical characters a face while telling their incredible stories of persevering faith. Through drama, dance, and song, the story follows an eclectic group of fishermen, Pharisees, and vagabonds who left everything to follow Jesus of Nazareth, and He completely changed their lives.
Acts can be produced in 2 different formats: a two-act musical, or a choral presentation with narration between songs. Performance length can range from 60 minutes to two-hours.
Music & Lyrics by Martin Landry, Janice Landry, Cathy Mays, Danny Mays & John David Maresco
Acts was produced at Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, MD in 2006, 2008 and 2012.
