A fast-paced comedic romp through every Bible story...

with musical numbers...

and lots of bad wigs.

A rip-roaring comedy by Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor, and originally produced by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, this acclaimed spoof has been called “a slick, fast, very funny show” by the London Times, and this debuting area play will be brought to life by the sensational three-man cast of local-theatre favorites and Workshop veterans James Fairchild, Jeremy Mahr, and Brent Tubbs.

In just over 90 minutes, the trio of performers attempts to cover all 66 books of its non-secular source through comedic skits, songs, improvisation, and audience interaction, addressing such pressing theological questions as “Did Adam and Eve have navels?” and “Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?” As they try, the actors each assume the roles of numerous biblical characters, male and female alike, in a gleeful satire-slash-celebration – a show that TheaterJones.com described as “the most hilariously raucous church service you're likely to see.”


Please note: Due to crude humor, The Bible is not recommended for audience members under age 13.

Run time: Approximately 90 minutes, with one intermission.





REVIEWS

"I left [the show] wondering how long it has been since I laughed that hard."
- Aaron Lord, QuadCities.com

"All three guys are confident, energetic improv performers, and they incredibly juggle some 200 props, with wigs and costume changes."
- Jonathan Turner, The Dispatch-Argus

"These three comedians never stopped moving, singing, dancing, or laughing
with their over-the-top, audience-interactive approach...
"...a nearly religious experience that every Quad-City-theatre-
and comedy-lover should see." - Jeff Ashcraft, The River Cities' Reader
