"We want to bring His Story: The Musical to a worldwide audience, and we believe that North Texas is the perfect place to start the journey."

"UTA's Department of Theatre Arts and Dance is thrilled to host Eisenberg/Beans Casting and the His Story team as they cast their new world-premiere production," says Dr. Anne Healy, Chair, Department of Theatre Arts & Dance, UTA.

His Story: The Musical, a world-premiere musical comes to Dallas this May. His Story: The Musical features book, music and lyrics by Anna Miriam Brown, and direction by two-time Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun (Disney's Newsies, Disney's High School Musical, Grease, Bonnie & Clyde). The engagement launches May 5, 2023 at the new state-of-the-art Broadway Tent at Grandscape (5752 Grandscape Blvd, The Colony, TX 75056). Opening night is May 18. Tickets are now on sale at For further information, visit

His Story: The Musical is presented by Tony-nominated producer Bruce Lazarus, Willie and Korie Robertson (stars of "Duck Dynasty," New York Times bestselling authors), Brad Reeves / Bill Noble, Thinking Tree LLC, Jill Wilkinson, Cooper Collins, Mike Collins, and Troy Duhon / Bob Katz in association with Matthew Churchill Productions Ltd.

His Story: The Musical is a Broadway-style theatrical event, 2000 years in the making. In this new contemporary pop musical based on the life of Jesus, a common-man-from-an-obscure-family arrives in the big city and defies expectations. He performs miracles and speaks great wisdom, but chooses friends from the dregs of society and hangs out in the wrong part of town. Mocked by the establishment, he is adored by the people. Melding a youthful voice with a timeless perspective, the greatest story ever told is brought into the third millennium, reminding us of the universal power of love and redemption.

"In every generation, new voices point us to Jesus in unique, powerful and creative ways, says producers Willie and Korie Robertson. "We believe Anna Miriam Brown, who was 17 year old when she wrote His Story: The Musical is one of those extraordinary voices. We are thrilled to be a part of bringing this musical to the stage."

"I have worked on seventeen Broadway musicals, but nothing prepared me for the shock and awe of meeting Anna Brown who is truly an amazing artist, Anna Brown," says Tony nominated director Jeff Calhoun. "Anna's Gen Z perspective has made this familiar story youthful and contemporary ...not exactly adjectives I had previously associated with the Bible. I am excited to use the theater to bring all types of people together to share a message that is so needed in today's culture. My prayer is that once you experience His Story The Musical, you will leave the theater with a renewed optimism about the potential of humanity."
