Sight & Sound Theaters’ “David” production will be available for fans to watch from anywhere in the world during a special live stream event in September.
“DAVID-Live” will take audiences inside the biblical tale of a young boy named David who slew a Philistine giant and later became the king of Israel.
“For nearly 50 years, people from all over the world have come to Sight & Sound to see the Bible come to life on stage,” Katie Miller, Sight & Sound’s director of marketing and communications, said in a statement to The Christian Post. . . “We are thrilled to once again bring the experience of live theater to audiences wherever they are in the world.”
The show will also give viewers a 15-minute behind-the-scenes look at the production.
“The incredible story of ‘DAVID’, the shepherd who would become the most famous king in scripture, is a story full of unexpected adventures,” added producer Ryan Miller. “The production explores all the complexities of his life and how, through his triumphs and failures, he persevered as a man after God’s heart.”
“DAVID-Live” will be available to watch on Sight and Sound new streaming platform vue-son.tv. The streaming service was launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns so audiences can continue to experience live theater from home. The company’s first-ever live broadcast was “QUEEN ESTHER—Live,” followed by “JESUS-Live” over Easter last year.
In the new production, David is portrayed as a “master poet, fearless warrior, anointed king, of still waters to shaded valleys. David’s ascent to the throne is filled with towering giants, wild animals and Philistine soldiers. After unprecedented victories, devastating events and failures, this passionate warrior will face the greatest battle of all: that within himself,” reads the show’s synopsis.
While visiting the CP set at the company’s Pennslyvania site, Miller shared his inspiration for the re-enactment of David’s life.
While reading the Bible, the producer realized that David “definitely had a different way of relating to the Lord that I haven’t even really seen modeled and I know I don’t.”
“So trying to find out what it was and then trying to fit it into a show was the goal, while still keeping all the fun, action-adventure and big spectacular moments that people also expect. “, Miller told CP.
The main theme displayed throughout “David’s” performance was his heart to seek the Lord and do justice with God when he sinned. The storyline, his battles with Goliath and other giants, and his fall with Bathsheba captivated audiences throughout the performance.
