The play, backed with live music, has a fresh and contemporary feel.

A musical conceived and written by John Michael Tebelak with lyrics and music by Stephen Schwartz, follows the story of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew and features some of the best-loved songs from modern musicals, including Day By Day and All For the Best.

The design team includes: Choreographer Cat Ruka, Musical Director Jason Te Mete, Costume Designer Cat Ruka, Lighting Designer Paul Richardson, and the Stage Manager is Cath Dickey and Producer Padma Akula.
