Come experience The Glory of Christmas, considered by many as the best off-Broadway production in the Detroit area! Flying angels, indoor fireworks, live animals, amazing special effects, professional orchestra, 100 voice choir, dynamic soloists, dazzling lights, and cinematic video tell the story of a great light that shone in the darkness so that we might see. That light is Jesus, the real meaning of Christmas. Merry Christmas!
