The 2010 Premiere

Telling the Story was a musical and theatrical collective created and performed by 9th Hour Theatre Company on June 18, 2010 as its inaugural production.

This premiere was a fantastic start to fully realizing the vision of 9th Hour Theatre Company, having raised close to $15,000. The show was a collective piece showcasing almost 40 distinct musical numbers and dramatic scenes from various artistic sources, woven together to uniquely tell the overarching and epic story of God and humanity (from creation to the reconciliation of man to God). Overall, there were close to 60 performers featured in the show from all across the national capital region, varying with talents of dance, music, singing, acting, or a combination. There were also many other volunteers who contributed their time and skills in helping behind the scenes in areas such as technical support, lighting, sound, music, photography, choreography, publicity, and marketing.
