'Take A Bow Productions Ltd' are proud to provide your school or organisation with our moving and thought provoking musicals.


1. The 'Full play' 'Easter Mystery Un-shrouded' has family scenes discussing the Easter message and the discoveries of the shroud of Turin. The story links in with the themes of the Easter songs and gospel scenes, which are introduced by a narrator.  This full show explores where science and faith meet to discover the mystery of the 'Shroud of Turin' and the amazing scientific evidence it has recently revealed. It follows the family as they discover the amazing links between the shroud and the gospel story, and what it all means for them 2000 years later. The action is set against a rush to answer the art questions before Monday's art presentation is due. 

2. The 'Short play' 'Easter Mystery Passion Play' involves the beautiful songs and moving Easter story, with narration of the gospel message before each scene. (Without the family scenes).
