Enjoy something spectacular this Easter season! Faith West Academy’s third bi-annual production of The Miracle, with new scenes, will be held on April 14, 16 and 18. As the audience walks among biblical characters, they will view replicas of settings from over 2000 years ago. All will witness over 75 actors and nearly 200 extras portray the final week of Christ’s life. Katy and the surrounding communities are invited to witness the portrayal of The Miracle.
The Meaning of Easter
The Miracle follows the story of Jesus in narration and live performances. The re-enactment of certain events demonstrates how Jesus continues to touch the lives of people today. The meaning of Easter becomes especially poignant with His final entry into to Jerusalem, the Last Supper, His arrest and the mock trials as He stood alone. The climactic events surrounding the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection bring a joyful message: “He is risen!”
“Churches and schools traditionally have performances at Christmastime, but rarely do you see a production of this magnitude during the time we observe the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ,” says Allen Strickland, School Chaplain.
The Community is Invited
Viewers will gather in the gymnasium for registration, then enjoy special entertainment before the production (as a prologue). A shepherd will guide and narrate each step of the journey starting with Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem. In a series of short scenes, the story of The Miracle is presented as a one-hour performance.
A cast of teachers and students will perform amid elaborate stage settings, bringing to life the incredible story of the man who changed the world forever. In addition to colorful sets there will be stunning costumes (handmade by volunteers), sound and lighting effects, and music to create the experience of The Miracle.
