Catch Blake Dodson as Judas Iscariot in "The Thorn"
“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.”
