Now it’s God’s turn…
“A.D. The Musical” gives audiences of all ages the inspirational message of God’s love in an entertaining and enlightening way. More than 20 songs in this “play-within-a-play” help weave a colorful story about some of the people who encountered Jesus during his life on Earth.
The lighthearted but moving musical, tells the story of Morty, a new Angel, that is sent back down to Earth with the Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, to produce a musical revue that reminds people of Jesus’ love for them. Along the way, they cast a varied group of actors to portray the characters in Jesus’ life, and the cast learns much about themselves and Jesus’ purpose for their lives. The story takes an interesting turn when the Angel Morty falls for Sandra, an actress he casts to play the role of Mary. Tensions arise but God steps in for the surprise ending and sings the rousing finale to A.D. The Musical.
