An Outdoor Theatrical Presentation of the Gospel on a Grand Scale
The Promise is a one-of-a-kind musical production performed annually at the Texas Amphitheater in Glen Rose, Texas. It combines a 150-person cast and crew, live animals, historically accurate costumes, and breath-taking lights, sound and special effects, all of which tell the story of the life of Jesus Christ in modern family-friendly fashion. Patrons have called it a "life-changing experience", "an outstanding performance", and a "very inspirational" presentation for modern family audiences.
Since its start in 1989, The Promise remains the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in the State of Texas. It seats more than 3200 patrons and is the only outdoor venue with a 45,000-gallon waterway running the length of 100' long proscenium stage. Seen from miles around, the Texas Amphitheater features 40'-high walls and arches that tower above a 4,000 sq. ft. tri-level stage. It is also the only outdoor theater in the nation with a rain curtain.
Performances are offered on Friday and Saturday evenings throughout September and October and into the first week of November.
