America, 1959. Change is in the air. The post war boom is thriving, the civil rights movement is growing and the golden age of television has begun. But, on a farm in rural Louisiana three children are hoping for a miracle.

When Swallow, a teenager struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother, discovers a man hiding out in the family barn she becomes convinced he is Jesus. In a town where the community will do anything to defend their way of life, the children unite to protect their saviour. As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow begins to discover who she is and what it means to grow up.
In this thrilling musical, a cast of actor-musicians alongside a cast of talented local young people bring to life Andrew Lloyd Webber's emotive score featuring hit songs including 'No Matter What', 'When Children Rule The World' and 'Whistle Down The Wind'.

Nominated for the UK Theatre Award for Best Musical Production
& Broadway World UK Awards for Best Choreography, Best Direction and Best New Regional Production.

Jackson Greaves, as director and choreographer, thrillingly fuses movement with music, turning his actor-musicians into a chorus (almost in the style of Greek tragedy), expanding the world of the action, amplifying the characters’ emotions and pulling together extremes of every day and supernatural. What seems incredible becomes affectingly believable.
