Eager to find that balance between a powerful re-telling of the Easter story and the feasibility of a big musical production? Look no further than The Borrowed Tomb, a fresh offering from the talented team of Steve Moore and David T. Clydesdale. Active members of the same church, they understand the complexities of such a major undertaking and have crafted a work that adapts to staging on any scale.

Similar in its approach to their previous work, That's the Good News, Moore and Clydesdale have created another work with simple staging, simple set designs, and a small cast surrounded by beautifully singable music. Lush orchestrations and melodic vocal arrangements of songs - both familiar and new - are seamlessly blended with four actors and one storyteller to express the amazing and life-changing Easter story.

Written from the perspective of Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea, The Borrowed Tomb is the story of the all-too human struggle to believe that Jesus truly was - and is - the long-awaited Messiah. It's a profoundly relevant message for a modern day society faced with the very same choice of a personal faith in Christ. Word Music encourages you to embrace the incredible melodies, lyrics, drama and message of The Borrowed Tomb this Easter season.
