This abbreviated version of Luther The Rock Opera tells the basic story of the stormy monk, Martin Luther, and his bold stance that brought the Medieval Era to an end and birthed the Modern Era. The play is designed for a 24-40 member cast, band, and optional dancers. It includes 30 songs, dozens of 3-D spray-mountable props, promotional materials, plus 300+ Powerpoint  projections and animations for a multi-media experience.

CAST

Cast includes  9 Major Roles, 9 Minor Roles, 8 Choral Trios and as many Ensemble members as you choose. Consider including children in the Ensemble as citizens of Wittenberg, pick-pockets in Rome, and servants in Ulrich’s castle. Sing along with Peder Eide (Luther), Rachel Kurtz (Katharina), Robert Robinson (Frederick), and a team of talented vocalists to learn the songs on our prerecorded tracks or add a live band.
