Local Mediacorp Actor Jeffrey Xu has been tapped to play a Roman Soldier in the upcoming musical, Who is Jesus, produced by Newstring Ministry.
Adding to the incredibly talented and attractive cast, local artiste Apple Hong has been cast in the iconic role of Saint Claudia, wife of Pilate, who is played by local Model and Entreprenuer Dennis Toh.
Other notable actors include ex-host DaiLan, veteran Singer XiaHui as well as Singer Song Writer Lin Yi Zhong, who will play the iconic role of Jesus. Sound Engineer from Dreamworks, Terence Teo, who is a renowned Music arranger in Asia has also been invited to provide musical direction to the production.
With a realistic approach, this musical seeks to unravel the life story of Jesus as an actual historical figure. The story begins with two Roman soldiers delegated as spies to observe Jesus. Both saw how the Jews clustered around him with admiration and witnessed how Jesus was ultimately set up by the religious leaders, only to be crucified on the cross.
Once unaware of the past behind Jesus, the two Roman soldiers eventually came to discover his love and soon realised that he is the true Son of God.
Liza Foong, Director and Producer from New String Ministry commented ‘It has been a rough journey getting this stage play together. However, we have witnessed several parties coming together for the sole purpose of piecing the stage play into one. I want to thank everyone who has helped us throughout the process’.
The epic two-hour musical will take place at the Esplanade on 3th September (2pm and 8pm) and 4th September (2pm and 8pm). Admission is free. Interested theatre-goers are invited to call 81660922 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets. For more information, visit WhoisJesus.sg.
