LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Christ in the Arts, (CITA) will debut its all-new production, A Tale of the Kingdom. This event will take place Thursday, May 13th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. and Friday, May 14th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. *This date has changed from its original date in January and make-up date in March due to the Civic Center being closed until March*

While Christ in the Arts’ debut production as a school was a musical adaptation of Tales of the Kingdom (books written by David and Karen Mains), this ballet-based production will have a completely fresh feel. Audiences will be dazzled by stunning sets and lights, breathtaking costumes, impressive technical skill, and more. This production is family-friendly and is certainly a delight for all ages.

Randall Hinds, CITA Executive Director, states, “A Tale of the Kingdom is a classic tale of a lost young boy who, in desperation, stumbles onto a completely unknown realm where everyone is uniquely loved and valued. But it’s also about the difficult and dangerous journey this boy, so scarred by his early life, must take to find his own authentic identity and calling. Originally created as a full-length musical in 2007, Christ in the Arts brings this perennially-relevant story back to the stage as an exclusive dramatic dance production. And while this new format necessitates many adaptations from that of the musical, the essential message and magic remains and is enhanced!”

More than 150 students of all ages and experience levels will participate in A Tale of the Kingdom. For more information, visit or call 806-632-1458. Tickets available through iTickets at>
