At Blessed Arts Theater the tagline says it all. We want to “bring revival to the stage” by telling contemporary, relevant and unashamedly Christian stories on the main stage theaters of the Greater Los Angeles area. Realizing that most seekers (and almost all non-believers) are hesitant to go to the church to hear a message, we want to take the message to the masses. By presenting our work on ‘neutral ground,’ we hope we are casting the widest possible net to share the Good News!

It’s been a wild ride and we have already been met with some resistance. But we are determined to move ahead-- casting aside all our doubts, fear, insecurity and the comforts of being popular by using our time, talent and treasure for this ministry. It is our hope and prayer that you will partner with us as we humbly and faithfully do what He has called us to do.

This summer, we are set to showcase 2 new works in progress. My show, The Application will open in August in the theater district of North Hollywood.

About the show

The Application explores how we respond to God's plans when they do not align with ours. 

Synposis: CALLIE is certain of 2 things: her faith and her pending engagement to long-term boyfriend, LUKE. After a four-year courtship, LUKE is wondering if he is ready to pop the question when he is, instead, called to the Ministry/Bible College and out of his relationship. Meanwhile, LILY and BEN have decided to get married after only 8 months. Can these couples make it? More importantly, does God want them to? Obedience, submission and idolatry are just a few of the difficult themes explored in this new stage piece.

How You Can Help

We are hoping to raise a minimum of $500 to fund a showcase and post-show discussion of The Application in North Hollywood. This will cover the bottom line costs of renting the performance venue, securing 4 hours of rehearsal studio rental, providing the cast with copies of the script and paying the actors and crew a modest stipend for their time.

To thank you for your support, each donation level offers its on ‘perk’ or reward. Be sure to look over the perks (listed to your right) for all the ways we want to bless you for being a blessing to us.

The script is complete, the play is cast, the producers are praying up a storm and we on our way. All we need now is a bit of a "kick start" from you-- our family and friends.

Thank you for your consideration!
