The dynamic presentation features drama, aerial acts, movement arts, and modern dance to illustrate the greatest story ever told. With a script based on the New Testament, The Thorn takes the audience through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“It is a story full of love, sacrifice, spiritual warfare, and redemption, and we are thrilled to share this amazing event with North Texas” says John Bolin, Creator.

Paul Asay from The Gazette said, “The Thorn is a dramatic and musical extravaganza.” Eric Gorski from The Denver Post wrote, “The Thorn rivals a Broadway production in scope and ambition.”

The Thorn National Tour

Conceived and performed primarily in churches across the country through 2019, “The Thorn” was basically shelved–like most live productions– during the Covid 19 pandemic. It is now slated to reach broader audiences through this national tour. The tour kicked off in Denver, Colorado and will culminate in Miami, Florida on Easter Weekend April 8.

As a Fathom Event, “The Thorn” was made into a film that will play in movie theaters across the country for a special two-day event March 6-7. For more information on the film version, please visit For more information on the live production, please visit
