The Thorn tells the epic story of God’s love for the world and the spiritual battle for all humanity. Often described as cirque meets the passion of Jesus, The Thorn combines dance, martial arts, aerial acrobatics, and emotionally powerful performances, witnessed live by 1M+ people for over 25 years. The Thorn will engage audiences in the ultimate story of love, sacrifice, and redemption like never before.

Warning:  This production uses special effects including flashing/strobe lights and fog/haze.

Is the show appropriate for children?

Over 12, absolutely. The show was originally designed for teenagers so it is appropriate for anyone 12 and over. Over the years, we have worked to make the show more family-friendly as our audience has evolved to include younger children and families. The show is loud, has graphic content (specifically the crucifixion), and is an intense subject. That said, we have countless younger attendees that have an amazing experience, ages 6 and up. If you are planning on bringing children, the potentially questionable portion of the show is the 30 minutes after intermission (for the live show). The first hour and the last 20 minutes are all-ages appropriate.
