“It was surreal to have gotten a chance to do both stage and film at the same time and I loved every second of it.”

Catch Blake Dodson (Class of 2020) as Judas Iscariot in a limited engagement of The Thorn. “Often described as cirque meets the passion of Jesus, The Thorn is an immersive stage show [that uses] emotionally powerful music, drama, aerial acts, movement arts, modern dance, and big visual effects” to portray the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“After Covid I didn’t know if acting was for me anymore,” Dodson said when describing his journey to The Thorn. “I was praying and just gave it all to God. The next day I got an email asking if I could do this “Cirque du Soleil meets Passion of the Christ" play. I ended up leaving for Colorado and getting to play Judas on a stage in front of thousands and filming my first feature film.”

A Fathom Events presentation, the film will be shown in 720 theaters across the US on March 6th and 7th. For more information click here. Click here for tickets. Watch the trailer below:
