The Thorn tells the epic story of God’s love for the world and the spiritual battle for all humanity. Often described as cirque meets the passion of Jesus, The Thorn combines dance, martial arts, aerial acrobatics and emotionally powerful performances, witnessed live by more than 1 million people for 25 years.

The Thorn will engage audiences in the ultimate story of love, sacrifice and redemption like never before.


*The show was originally designed for teenagers, so it is appropriate for anyone 12 or older. Over the years, we have worked to make the show more family-friendly, as our audience has evolved to include younger children and families. The show is loud, has graphic content (specifically the crucifixion) and is an intense subject. That said, we have countless young attendees, ages 6 and up, who have an amazing experience. If you are planning on bringing children, the potentially questionable portion of the show occurs 30 minutes after intermission. The first hour and the last 30 minutes are appropriate for all ages.
