With amazing costumes and brilliant black light effects, the creation story comes to life on the NarroWay stage. Aerial artists depicting butterflies perform stunning acrobatics dangling in the air.

"Lord of Light" is perhaps the most unique and comprehensive yet compact portrayal of the Easter story to grace any stage. Recounting mankind's fall from grace and the subsequent need for redemption, the show portrays Christ's resurrection as the fulfillment of that need. "We don't just tell the story," says Alisha Anders, Director of Tour Marketing for NarroWay. "We tell why the story happened. And we make it relevant to today's world."
It's this kind of unique approach that has audience members raving. "Amazing talent. I can't believe this type of show exists right here in town!" says Lesa Roffler, who recently brought her young boys to the show.
"Lord of Light" plays each Friday at 6:30pm and Saturday at noon through Easter weekend, April 7, at the NarroWay Theatre. As with most shows at the NarroWay Theatre, dinner is offered in conjunction with the show. Dinner tickets include a delicious 1/2 rack of ribs on a bed of orzo pasta with Mediterranean vegetables, a dinner roll, dessert and beverage. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.narroway.net or by calling the box office at 803.802.2300. The NarroWay Theatre is located in the greater Charlotte area, just 1/2 mile south off I-77 exit 90 (Carowinds Boulevard).
