The play was very moving. It was amazing how each act of the drama flowed so smoothly from one scene to the next. I highly recommend this as a destination vacation for anyone to see and hear about the Gospel and our Savior Christ Jesus.

Most beautiful and heart wrenching play ever. You’ll shed a few tears so take your Kleenex. The actors/actresses were great. It’s a must see play. I’ve included some pictures. We met a very nice couple there and became friends. The price was $27 and the...More
