Come and See
is an invitation for each of us to experience Jesus as He enters Jerusalem; to witness His betrayal by a friend; to endure with Him the suffering and death of a sinless Savior; and finally to behold His empty tomb. Through the "eyes" of a blind beggar, we're taken through these events and more by way of a powerful and moving dramatic script, and energetic choral arrangements carefully designed for smaller choirs by two-time Dove Award winning writers, Dennis and Nan Allen.
With a run time of 36 minutes, this dramatic musical includes popular worship songs Come and See and Sing to the King and the classic Wayne Watson song Friend of a Wounded Heart. Also included is a beautiful arrangement of the hymn I Saw the Cross and a new tune to the great hymn text Beneath the Cross of Jesus. Musically, this work is highlighted by settings that any choir can comfortably attain. Several opportunities for congregational involvement are included.
For the full drama version, a small cast is required, and Nan Allen has written creative and very useful production notes to assist in both staging and costuming. The narrator version requires two narrators and is equally moving.
