Play Synopsis
Altar Boyz is a foot-stomping, rafter-raising, musical comedy about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last night of their national “Raise the Praise” tour. The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham. As they perform their signature hits such as Rhythm In Me, The Calling, and I Believe, the Boyz question their loyalty to each other and ask whether or not faith is really holding them together.

They finally deliver a message of unity, that “there is no star as bright as its constellation, no harmony in a single voice.”
