The Promise

Glen Rose 2013

The Promise begins on the banks of the Paluxy River in historic Glen Rose, Texas. A grandpa and his grandchildren, Billy and Lisa, explore the riverbed in search of the dinosaur tracks that have helped make Somervell County such a popular destination for visitors. As they settle by a campfire, Grandpa is reminded of a story that his own grandpa used to tell him – a story about the Promise – a story about the One sent by God so many years ago.

Act I (Please be advised. Loud pyrotechnics are used in Scene 5 – The Desert.)

Scene 1 – The Prophets

Billy and Lisa go on a hike with their Grandpa along the banks of the Paluxy River in Somervell County, Texas and stumble upon an old campsite by the water’s edge. Grandpa is reminded of when his own grandfather would tell him stories, and when Lisa exclaims that when he tells stories, “they just come to life,” Grandpa begins the story of the Promised One. Moments later, the three find themselves in the midst of Old Testament prophets and experience the life of Jesus in a very special way. Song: A Promise Is a Promise Music & Lyrics: Walt Harrah Vocals: Grandpa, Lisa, Billy, and Prophets Jeremiah, Isaiah, Micah, Zechariah Scripture: Jeremiah 23:5-6, Isaiah 7:14-15, Micah 5:2-4, Zechariah 9:9-10

Scene 2 – The Road to Bethlehem & Nativity

Awed by the sight of the Prophets, Billy and Lisa can’t wait to hear more of the story. A moment later, they meet Mary and Joseph making their way to Bethlehem.  Song: Magnify Music & Lyrics: Luke Garrett Vocals: Young Mary, Joseph, Lisa Scripture: Luke 2:1-5 Grandpa introduces the birth of Jesus as shepherds watch a magnificent angelic host appear. Mary and Joseph greet the gathering crowd and are humbled by the arrival of the Maji. Song: Glory to God Music & Lyrics: Tom Fettke, John C. Hallett Vocals: Angel Gabriel, Heavenly Chorus Scripture: Luke 2:8-12, Matthew 2:1-2

Glen Rose 2002

Scene 3 – Carpenter Shop & Temple

When Herod demands the death of all male babies in Bethlehem under the age of two, Joseph and Mary flee with Yeshua to Egypt. Upon Herod’s death, they return to Nazareth where 12-year-old Yeshua grows up  in Joserph’s carpenter shop. At the temple during Passover, Yeshua impresses the church leaders with His profound insights into the Scriptures.  Song: Little Yeshua Music: Gary Rhodes; Lyrics: Claire Cloninger and Curt Cloninger Vocals: Joseph, Yeshua Scripture: Luke 2:43–49

Scene 4 – The Baptism

Jesus grew both tall and wise and was loved by God and man alike. When He was about 30, He began to be about His Father’s business in a new way. His coming was foretold by a man called John the Baptist. Song: The Kingdom of Heaven/One Voice Music, Lyrics, Arrangement: Robert Sterling Vocals: John the Baptist, Townspeople Scripture: Mark 1:5-6, Mark 1:9-11

Scene 5 – The Desert

After Jesus is baptized by John, He is led by the Spirit of God into the wilderness where He fasts for 40 days and 40 nights. The days are hot and dry, and the nights are cold and lonely. At  His weakest moment, the Tempter comes . . . Satan himself.  Song: It Is Written Music & Lyrics: Steve Amerson and David T. Clydesdale Vocals: Jesus, Satan Scripture: Luke 4:3-13

Scene 6—Calling the Disciples

As the time arrived for Jesus to begin His ministry, He found many to follow Him. These 12 men from different backgrounds accepted His call and joined Him. The Disciples were taught by the Master Himself and became known as the Twelve. They brought many people to hear the Good News and to experience the presence of the Messiah. Song: I See the Kingdom Coming Music & Lyrics: Claire Cloninger & Don Marsh Vocals: Peter, James, John the Beloved, Matthew, Disciples Scripture: Mark 3:13-15, Matthew 5:1-12



Scene 7—Sermon on the Mountainside

As a large crowd gathers on a hillside, Jesus preaches His message of love but is interrupted by Caiaphas and other religious leaders. His answers to their questions send them into a rage and they hastily exit to plan how to rid their people of this growing threat. One of their own, Nicodemus, stays behind for a private moment with Jesus. He is desperate for a deeper understanding of God’s salvation. Song: Closer than a Heartbeat Music & Lyrics: Claire Cloninger & Don Marsh Vocals: Jesus Scripture: Matthew 5:13-16, John 3:17-18

Scene 8 – Jesus and the Twelve by the River

The Disciples come together as one—unified as brothers with a specific calling. At their camp, they join Grandpa in a joyful dance of praise. But soon after, their faith is tested. At sea during a storm, Jesus confronts the Disciples about their lack of faith. Song: He Is Jehovah Music & Lyrics: Betty Jean Robinson Vocals: Grandpa, Jesus, Disciples Scripture: Matthew 8:23-27

Scene 9—Healings in the Marketplace

Jesus’ ministry was much more than teaching. Wherever He went, He changed the lives of people in need. He gave sight to the blind, made the crippled walk, and delivered  the possessed from their demons. He astonished listeners with His message of kindness, acceptance, and love. One of the  greatest expressions of His power was when He delivered Jairus’ young daughter from the clutches of death. Song: In the Name of the Lord Music: Sandi Pattie Helvering Lyrics: Phil McHugh, Gloria Gaither, Sandi Patti Helvering Solo: Woman in the Crowd Scripture: Mark 8:23-25, John 8:3-11, Luke 8: 29b-31, Mark 5:22-24

Glen Rose 2006

Scene 10—The Sanhedrin Court

The more miracles Jesus performed, the more He angered the religious leaders. And the more Jesus taught, the more they thought He was teaching against them. Hatred built up in their hearts, and they began to plot against Him. Scripture: John 11:53, Matthew 16:21-23

Scene 11 – The Kingdom of Heaven

Around a campfire, Peter demands that Jesus explain the Kingdom of God, but Jesus’ answers do not satisfy him. God’s plan for establishing His Kingdom on the earth requires that Jesus be humiliated, beaten, and crucified—the manner of death given to traitors. Peter’s refusal to go along with this plan pits him directly against Jesus and threatens to break the Twelve apart. In Jesus’ harshest rebuke, He spurns Peter for not being mindful of the things of God. In the midst of the conflict, Satan appears. Scripture: Matthew 16:23

Scene 12 – Lazarus’ Tomb

When Lazarus became sick, Jesus did not come to him. When he died and was buried, Jesus still refused to visit. Four days later, Lazarus’ sisters Mary and Martha of Bethany mourn at his tomb. Mary insists that Jesus will come, but the encouragement falls on deaf ears as Martha makes her disappointment clear. Jesus arrives moments later and tenderly weeps with the women. When Jesus calls Lazarus out of the grave and Martha watches her brother step from death into life, she finally grasps the power and majesty of Jesus. As Act I ends, she proclaims that He truly is the One who has come to save the world. Song: In the Name of the Lord (Reprise) Music: Sandi Pattie Helvering Lyrics: Phil McHugh, Gloria Gaither, Sandi Patti Helvering Vocals: Disciples, Mourners, Grandpa, Lisa, Billy Scripture: John 11:35-44

End of Act I There will be a 15-minute intermission. Please feel free to visit the gift shop and ask about our Backstage Tour!

Act II Glen Rose 2002

Scene 1—Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

With the Good News on everyone’s lips, Jesus and the Twelve triumphantly enter Jerusalem just as the Passover celebration begins. The welcoming throng greets them with excitement and joy. Song: Hosanna Music & Lyrics: Billy Smiley and Mark Gersmehl Vocals: Martha, Phoebe, and Veronica (Hosanna Trio) Scripture: John 12:12-13

Scene 2 – Destruction of the Temple

Jesus and the Twelve arrive at the Temple only to see that it has become a defiled place of business on the Sabbath. Jesus harshly rebukes the moneychangers in a confrontation that draws the ire of the religious leaders. In their most direct confrontation yet, Jesus publicly tells Caiaphas that he is full of dead men’s bones. This changes things entirely. So far, Caiaphas has only been looking for a way to stop Jesus from influencing the people. Now, it’s personal. No longer is he interested in keeping Jesus quiet. Now Jesus must be silenced forever. To gather evidence, Caiaphas enlists the help of Judas, one of the Twelve. Song: My Father’s Temple Music & Lyrics: Jan Easterline & David T. Clydesdale Vocals: Jesus Scripture: Luke: 19:45, 46

Scene 3 – The Last Supper

Jesus and the Twelve meet for a late meal in an upper room. Jesus washes their feet to teach them about leadership and servanthood, but all the while, He warns them that the time is coming soon for His betrayal, persecution, and death. As the tension builds, Jesus encourages them to stay strong through the coming struggles. Song: Shalom Music: Claire Cloninger & Don Marsh Lyrics: Claire Cloninger Vocals: Jesus, Disciples Scripture: Mark 14:22-25

Scene 4—Betrayal in the Garden

Jesus and the Twelve cross the Kidron Valley to the garden of Gethsemane where Jesus pleads for the Father’s will to be done. When a contingent of Pharisees and soldiers arrives, Judas gives the sign—a kiss— to identify Jesus as the one to apprehend. In defense of Jesus, Peter cuts off Malchus’ ear but is unable to keep the soldiers from taking Him away to face an unjust trial before Caiaphas. Swept up by regret, Judas throws the coins away and exits, leaving a stunned Malchus to contemplate what has just happened. Song: Glorify Your Son Music & Lyrics: Steve Amerson & David T. Clydesdale Vocals: Jesus Scripture: John 17:1b, Luke 22:54

Scene 5—Denial in the Streets Having escaped the soldiers, Peter watches helplessly at the Temple as centurions beat and drag Jesus up the steps to the Sanhedrin Court. Wanting to intervene but afraid of enduring the same punishment, Peter denies his involvement with Jesus when a servant girl, a Roman soldier, and a Pharisee recognize him. In song, the guilt of Pater’s denials plunges him into complete despair. By his own weakness, he is forced to stand by as Jesus is found guilty and taken to Pilate to be executed. Song: Yesterday Music & Lyrics: Rodger Strader Vocals: Peter Scripture: Luke 22:56-62 , Matthew 25:59-69, Mark 14:55-66, John 18:13

Scene 6—Jesus’ Trials Before Pilate and Herod

Jesus is delivered in chains to the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate. But His refusal to answer any questions prompts Pilate to send Him to Herod. This infuriates the Pharisees who must now wait longer for a decision about Jesus’ fate.

Glen Rose 2002

Glen Rose 2004

Scene 7 – Jesus Before Pilate

Rebuffed by Herod, Jesus is returned to Pilate. The Pharisees churn discord among the crowd, and their demands for Jesus to be put to death grow louder. At first, Pilate orders Jesus to be flogged but the bloodthirsty crowd brings a change of mind and he trades Jesus for Barabbas. Roman soldiers hammer a crown of thorns onto Jesus’ head and start Him on the journey to Golgotha to be crucified. Song: Let Him Be Crucified Music & Lyrics: David T. Clydesdale Vocals: Pilate, Townspeople Scripture: John 19:14b-16

Scene 8 – The Crucifixion

Wounded and exhausted, Jesus carries a heavy wooden cross along the Via Dolorosa, or “way of sorrows,” and is jeered and beaten at every step. When He reaches the top, soldiers nail His feet and hands to the wooden beams and lift Him up for all to see. Song: Via Dolorosa Music & Lyrics: Billy Sprague & Niles Borop Quartet: Woman in the Crowd, Crippled Woman, Harlot, Jairus’ Wife Scripture: Matthew 27:32-33 Softly,  His mother Mary and His beloved friend John plead  for mercy. Mocked by the Pharisees, Jesus faces His final moments. Satan appears, pleased with the way things are turning out. Song: Cross of Calvary Music & Lyrics: Claire Cloninger, Don Marsh, Lorie Marsh Vocals: Mary at the Cross, John the Beloved Scripture: Luke 23:33-34, Matthew 27:41-42, Luke 23:46

Scene 9 – The Resurrection

Jesus’ mother Mary, Mary of Magdala, Mary of Bethany, and other mourners arrive at the tomb to grieve. Intending to anoint Jesus’ body, the three women find an open tomb. As the Disciples rush in, everyone gathers to see proof of the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ. Song: Arise Music: Kathy Frizzel, Lyrics: Claire Cloninger , Arrangment: Gary Rhodes Vocals: Angel Gabriel Scripture: Matthew 27:35-66, Mark 16:1, Luke 23:33-56, John 19:18-42

Scene 10—The Great Commission

Grandpa proclaims that the risen Savior is alive. A crowd of His followers has gathered on a hill, and Jesus encourages them to “love one another!” He issues a lasting challenge to never cease spreading the Good News in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. With this Great Commission, Jesus ascends into a cloud (Acts 1:9 NIV). Song: Glory to God (Reprise) Grandpa, Billy, and Lisa join the throng of townspeople in a final word of encouragement to the audience. Song: Magnify (Reprise)

To the Life and Memory of Caleb Midkiff (1999–2012) The day after Thanksgiving on Friday, November 23, 2012, an unexpected cardiac event suddenly and shockingly took the life of Caleb Midkiff, a young member of The Promise family. Emergency medical professionals worked for two hours to resuscitate him but were ultimately unsuccessful. Nearly a year later, the finality of his passing still ripples through the hearts and spirits of everyone who knew him. As we prepare to present the 2013 season, the producers, director, production staff, cast, crew, and all others associated with the production want to thank Caleb’s parents, Mark and Debra Midkiff, for allowing us to share his life—and our memories of him—with you this season. Our hearts are heavy, but with an equal measure of joy knowing that his place in heaven is secure, we lovingly dedicate this very special season— made all the more memorable because we were blessed to know and love such a brave, happy young man. Caleb, although your life was brief, your legacy as a caring son, loving brother, giving friend, goofy jokester, and talented performer will last with us forever. That’s a promise.

Dedicating 25 Years Dr. Ron Corley The Promise has so much to be grateful for and so many people to thank for helping it through the good times and the challenging ones over these 25 seasons. The Lord never said it would be easy to speak His name to a crying world; in fact, He knew it would be hard. But He wanted us to see if we had the heart, drive, commitment, and spirit to carry out His calling. Twenty-five seasons later, we can say that we did all we could to be the vessel He called us to be. We’ve tried to use the talents He gave us to reach out to every single audience member and share with them the Light they needed. But over the years, even as audiences in Glen Rose and around the world were experiencing The Promise and lives were changing, so much more was happening away from the bright lights. A group of men with uncommon devotion were praying The Promise through financial woes, political tensions, spiritual attacks, and the wavering will of others. Those men paid the earthly costs--money, blood, and tears--so we could be standing here before you now. And none of them worked as hard, as long, and more prayerfully than Dr. Ronald Corley. He was there in 1986 when the vision was first taking shape. He was there in 2002 when the end of the dream was upon us. It literally darkened the stage. But God led Dr. Corley’s hand to bring about the current board--four men of the same vision. And we’re here tonight with lights, costumes, music, and a passion for sharing the Word because Dr. Corley, and the current Board of Directors, saw God’s hand and followed it. The past 25 years have shown that Dr. Corley’s example as a man and leader is blessed by God. His influence and leadership continue to affect the production and everyone associated with it. For all these things, we are grateful for his heart, mind, spirit, and strength. How long God has for us to be here is unknown. The Promise and what it represents is so much more than any one of us, and we’re all ecstatic to have been a small part of it. All we know for sure is that we will be here as long as the Lord lets us. And we have Dr. Corley and his family to thank for all their years of sacrifice and service. Thank you Ron, Karan, and their 13 children. May God bless you. Prayerfully Yours, The Board, Cast, and Crew of the 25th Season of The Promise
