God’s Masterpiece – The Prologue2018-09-18T14:43:27+00:00

The “Prologue” of God’s Masterpiece

A woman, dressed in Bible attire, holding a baby.

.

The “prologue” is twenty-four “frozen pictures” made up of human statues (tableaus), that “preview” the events of the life of Christ, from His humble birth in Bethlehem to His triumphant ascension. Stirring music and inspirational narration ushers each human “tableau” along as the lights come up, then gently fade out, on picture after picture of “tableaus” scattered throughout the set.

The audience will turn their heads in all directions, as they take in these rich pictures that promise to lead them on an inspiring, emotional journey. At the end of the “Prologue” the actors enter to the music of “Here He Comes,” and the play beings with “The Triumphal Entry of Jesus.”
