The Details

The Resurrection—He makes the impossible…possible!, April 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 & 19 it comes to life with The Thorn Play! Through realistic videos of the resurrection story, live dramas, and beautiful music performed with video, you will experience the power and compassion of Jesus’ life, the pain of his crucifixion, and the triumph of his resurrection. 

The Thorn is a spectacular, live presentation of the story of the cross. With its combination of music, acting, dance, martial arts, and pyrotechnics, The Thorn has become the largest volunteer-based Easter production in the United States. Nearly one million people have witnessed this dramatic live event, and now exclusive videos, music, and dramatic monologues from The Thorn are available to us throughout Holy Week.

Holy Week is a perfect opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join us at International Christian Center, so begin praying for the people you will invite! The Thorn Play is a unique and beautiful experience that will inspire your guests and encourage them to respond to the saving grace of the gospel message.
