Ben Hur

August 1, 2019 @ 12:00 am - August 10, 2019 @ 12:00 am

$22 – $24

They said it was unachievable!

They said it couldn’t be done!

But now the greatest book ever penned is brought to the stage by a towering team of just four actors – turning Lakewood theater into one of the most authentic versions of Ancient Rome ever seen. Complete with…

Stunning combat (featuring the latest 3D technology!

A 103% bona fide chariot race (with REAL chariots)!

An authentic sea battle (with REAL water)!

A decadent and unexpurgated Roman orgy (suitable for all ages)!

Based on one of the timeless stories of one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, this stage adaptation condenses the epic tale so that it can be told by just four actors. The story follows an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur.

He falls to galley slave and rises to champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus  Christ, while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.
