Free Ride: the irresistible rise of Jesus Christ is an original stage musical that tells the story of Jesus through Classic Rock music of the 70’s and 80’s. Classic rock is the framework through which this classic message is boldly proclaimed. From the angel Gabriel’s revelations to Mary and Joseph through Jesus’ birth, ministry, betrayal, trial and death to the resurrection and ascension, this story is an honest, reverent translation of the Gospel story told in a unique and exciting way.
Jeans and T-shirts replace robes and sandals as singers/actors combine to portray over 200 characters as the humor, drama and passion of the Gospel story unfolds. A live band captures the feeling and power of rock music through electric guitar, bass, piano, keyboard and drums.
