Glen Rose, TX, April 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- This fall, The Promise will celebrate 28 seasons of inspiring performances at the Texas Amphitheatre in Glen Rose, TX. Year after year audiences travel from near and far to witness the Bible come to life. While similar style performances are closing around the country, The Promise keeps the faith as they head into a new season of performances.
In 2013, when county finances endangered its outdoor venue, the 3,200-seat Texas amphitheatre, which is county-owned, The Promise Board negotiated a 10-year lease to keep the ministry alive. While The Promise plans for the future, it is a very different story for so many other Christian productions. In the last 10 years alone, three prominent Passion plays have closed their doors for good — the Black Hills Passion Play in South Dakota, the Atlanta Passion Play and the Glory of Easter at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove.
"I'm optimistic. (But) there's no doubt this type of entertainment is a challenge," said Philip Hobson, board president of "The Promise" in Glen Rose, Texas. Hobson, an original organizer and current Board President has seen many ups and downs throughout the years, but keeps faith that the production's greater purpose of changing lives and mission of sharing the gospel will be the focal point of the season.
The Promise, based on Scripture spans the entire life of Jesus from the prophets who foretold His coming to His glorious Ascension in the clouds. The Promise brings the stories of the Bible to life with special effects, stunning voices, and a moving experience of the heart that you will never forget.
The story of Jesus is timeless. But the season is not. In 2016, The Promise will be performed Friday and Saturday evenings from September 2nd – October 29th. For more information call 254-897-3926 or visit ThePromiseGlenRose.com.
