A ROCK-YOUR-FAITH MUSICAL AND SURROUND VIDEO EXPERIENCE
OF THE GREATEST LOVE STORY OF ALL TIME!
TCTL is a rock-your-faith musical and surround video experience of the greatest story of all time. It’s a story about common men and women just like us, called on an incredible journey from Christ’s joyous entry in Jerusalem, through his horrible murder, and to the surprising events that occur after his death that rock the world and ultimately transform their lives! Don’t miss this life-changing event coming to a church near you.
A SPIRITUAL WAKE-UP CALL
TCTL is an immersive faith encounter, a “baptism of the imagination” with the “wow” factor our young people need to engage hearts! Our singers are not only Broadway quality, they are passionate believers. Add to that high-powered projectors and video imagery projected onto the walls 150-feet wide by 30-feet high, and people leave “speechless”, “blown away”, “in tears”, and “ready to commit their lives to Christ”.
The creator, songwriter, lyricist, and visionary behind The Cross and the Light, Kelly Nieto, weaves her incredible conversion story from agnosticism to Christianity into a riveting behind the scenes look at the powerful meaning behind the songs in the show. Add up to four singers to enhance the talk. Perfect for retreats and other church wide events especially when combined with the Concert Experience. Read more.
