They said it was... IMPOSSIBLE in today's financial climate.
But we're going ahead and doing it anyway!

Based on the timeless story from one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, the Southwick Players present this
rip roaring comedy stage adaptation, which condenses the epic tale so that it can be told by just seven (7) actors.
We follow an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur.
He falls low as a galley slave and rises to become a champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ...
All while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.
Complete with chariot race, sea battle, and stage combat, Patrick Barlow weaves his compressed style popularized by The 39 Steps into one of the largest stories ever told.
