Fun one-day trips
 
      Join us for an evening stage production of The Promise which utilizes an award-winning musical score, live animals, and a cast and crew of over 200 dedicated Christians.  It offers breathtaking technology with its lighting and sound system as well as a 45,000 gallon moat, and rain curtain and is held at the Texas Amphitheater, a 3,250 seat venue built just for this production.       The Promise is a realized dream that began in 1989.  It was the dream of introducing to the world a loving, laughing, and approachable Jesus in a casual, but glorious, outdoor environment.  What started as a play born of passion became a powerhouse production and Texas destination. More than two decades later, it remains a major draw. Narrated by a grandfather and his grandchildren, the story begins on the banks of the Paluxy River in historical Glen Rose, Texas. While hiking through the wilderness, the children come upon an old campsite that their Grandpa visited as a child. Grandpa begins to share a story with them that his grand-father shared with him in that very spot, a story about The Promised One! As the story “comes alive”, they find themselves among the prophets of The Old Testament foretelling the Life of Christ.  As the grandfather continues, the group is later present at the birthplace of Jesus, in the midst of shepherds and kings. Straight out of the pages of scripture, the narrators and audience witness the birth, life, death, resurrection, and triumphant ascension of Jesus Christ.       We will arrive in time for a Pre-show concert; show time is 8pm. Please eat dinner before departure. Concessions will be available at the theatre.
