An exciting rock opera with a penetrating message of hope.

"The music of Beyond The Wall is penetrating and captivating, and will leave attendees wanting to come back again and again."
Beyond The Wall
is an exciting rock musical with a penetrating message of hope – a multimedia program that uses music as its fundamental driving force, complemented with actors, choreography, stage settings, sound effects, lighting and rear screen projection that features slides and motion picture footage. The musical numbers range from profound, haunting ballads to intense, pulsating rock and roll.

Beyond The Wall
was written by Bill Ellis, a Vietnam Veteran and songwriter who uses some of his own experiences to tell the story of a young man who is forced to serve in a controversial war: a life-altering experience which, long after he returns home from the war, leaves him feeling bitter and hopeless, searching for answers. A desperate prayer sparks the beginning of a spiritual renewal for the grown man. The story continues on swiftly through the tragedy of 9/11 and the beginning of the war on terrorism, bringing the story full circle as the man observes his own son leave home to serve in the Afghanistan conflict.
