“His Last Days” is a story in song about Christ’s last days on earth. From His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, the agony in the garden, and the crucifixion, to resurrection.
“His Last Days” was written in 1979 by Dallas Holmes.
What started in 1989 as a meaningful Good Friday service, at their parish, has branched out across northwest Ohio and into Michigan. The first year began with four performances in three different locations.
Most years’ schedule includes a dozen performances. Over the past 25 years, the group has presented “His Last Days” 200 times to audiences of more than 40,000 traveling more than 10,000 miles.
There have been a total of 148 individuals involved in the musical group. This year the group has 39 members from several churches and communities. Five have been members since its inception.
Ginny Hull, director, oversees all aspects of the musical from the choir and lighting, to the technical crew. Technical assistants include Adam Daunhauer, David Daunhauer, Kelsey Johnson, Morgan Johnson, Abbey Strausbaugh and Jim Hull.
The 45-minute musical is accompanied by slides visually retelling “His Last Days.”
All performances are free and open to the public. Free will offerings are accepted and money in excess of expenses is given to a needy cause.
