Over 200 local cast and crew will be part of opening tour season of The Thorn at the Pikes Peak Center in downtown Colorado Springs on Friday, February 19th at 7pm. Four shows will take place over the weekend including two on Saturday (3pm & 7pm); and a 3pm show on Sunday.

Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday are past. Christians across the world are observing the 40 days of Lent, which culminates in the triumphant celebration of the risen Christ on Easter Sunday. In Colorado Springs that means it is time for The Thorn.

“This is our 20th season here in Colorado Springs,” says executive producer, Sarah Bolin. “And we are excited to begin our tour this year in our hometown.”

The Thorn is an historically accurate portrayal of the gospel story-known for being realistically graphic in depicting Roman times, especially in regards to crucifixion practices.

But don’t expect it to be the ‘same old show’.

Also known for being “Cirque”-esque, with martial artists, aerial acrobatics, dancers, and emotionally powerful dramatic performances joining forces to engage audiences across the United States while bringing the timeless story to life.

“Over half of the show features all new music this year,” says Bolin. “And we are thrilled that the downtown location will give us the opportunity to use a theater space to tell the traditional story in a different way.”

Over a million people have witnessed the production in person to date, and countless others have seen the production via broadcast by Daystar television in 2012.

Originally created as a visual account of the story of Jesus for a youth group at New Life Church which John Bolin was leading in 1996, The Thorn has grown into a nationally traveling production, a non-profit ministry, and a nine-month internship program (The Thorn Conservatory) for young people with a passion for sharing the gospel message through dramatic performance.

Following the Pikes Peak Center performances, the production will travel to four other cities in three different states, including: Fort Worth, TX, March 4-6; Denver, CO, March 11-13; Dallas, TX, March 18-19; and Lenexa, KS.
