Prepare to be mesmerized and moved as Rush Concerts presents a production that transcends entertainment, offering an immersive encounter with the profound and enduring themes of love, sacrifice, and redemption.

Is the show appropriate for children?

Over 12, absolutely. The show was originally designed for teenagers so it is appropriate for anyone 12 and over. Over the years, we have worked to make the show more family-friendly as our audience has evolved to include younger children and families. The show is loud, has graphic content (specifically the crucifixion), and is an intense subject. That said, we have countless younger attendees that have an amazing experience, ages 6 and up. If you are planning on bringing children, the potentially questionable portion of the show is the 30 minutes after intermission (for the live show). The first hour and the last 20 minutes are all-ages appropriate.
