ABOUT HIS STORY:
Bringing an iconic story into the third millennium with contemporary vernacular and perspective, HIS STORY engages the essential struggles of our global humanity. In a poor small town in the Holy Land, a humble yet hopeful teen girl pleads with God to send the Messiah and establish a kingdom of hope and justice. God hears Mary’s prayers and sends an angel to give her a mission: to bear the promised savior. Thus this virgin brings Jesus into the world, while her boyfriend Joe doesn't know quite what to think. Fast forward thirty years. Common-man-from-a-sketchy-family Jesus arrives in the big city, upending the traditional kingly expectation of the Messiah. He performs “miracles” and speaks great wisdom but chooses friends from the dregs of society and hangs out in the wrong part of town. Mocked by the Man, he is adored by the People.
NOTE: We are looking to cast strong, contemporary voices. ALL ethnicities are welcomed and encouraged to audition. Every effort will be made to have a cast that is reflective of the world we live in with regard to racial diversity and gender identification.
