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.
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.
Music & Lyrics by Martin Landry, Janice Landry, Cathy Mays, Danny Mays & John David Maresco
