Jeremiah Theatricals, A Division of Jeremiah Ministries
Impacting the Culture of Our Nation with The Light of God's Word
Our heart's desire is to return to the New York City stage with the Messianic Gospel to light up the theatre world with "Rabboni," the critically acclaimed, award-winning musical which we wrote and produced starting in Los Angeles in 1981, and then off-Broadway in New York City at The Perry Street Theatre in 1985.
You may have seen the show live or The 700 Club feature story which aired in December of 1985. The veil needs to be removed from Jewish eyes before the end is upon us or before future police action makes it impossible.
What happened on 9/11 and with the rise of ISIS in the Middle East is the wake up call that the time of terror and calamity has arrived and the time of Jewish and Christian trouble is indeed on the threshold. Now is the time to deliver the Lord's message: "Let My people go!"
We plan to revive "Rabboni" onto the Broadway stage.
The show has universal appeal but is a lamplighter to the Jewish people and a glamorous invitation to come under the "shadow of His wings" before the trouble starts. You see, the largest contingent of Jewish people in the world other than in Israel lives in the New York City area, which just happens to be the theatre capital of the world. It has been reported that over 50% of theatre-goers are Jewish in this city of over 1 million Jewish people.
In 1985, their romance with the theatre amazingly drew audiences of Jewish people night after night to see our musical; many found their Messiah. Now, it's time to revive "Rabboni" from the dead and hopefully He will touch your heart to become a part of the financial miracle necessary to give "Rabboni" new life!
The first step in our plan to bring "Rabboni" to Broadway will be to revive it at a mid-size off-Broadway theatre before shifting it to a major Broadway theatre. We hope to begin with a staged reading in New York City. This requires raising offerings and front money of about $300,000 of the total capitalization of approximately $15 million dollars for the Broadway production.
With the typical 2% return on Certificates of Deposit, I believe there are far greater riches for those who have willing hearts to give joyfully for the work of the Kingdom of God.
The immense popularity of Mel Gibson's film, "The Passion of The Christ," which generated almost half a billion dollars in profits, bears witness to the popularity of a Gospel-based theatrical investment. The net profits earned by great Broadway shows can be enormous. And the critics agreed that our musicals were first-rate and unforgettable.
Now is the time for those who can afford to invest to stand up and be counted! "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!" (Joshua 24:15)
In addition to an investment opportunity, we also offer a Sponsorship program. For a minimum donation of $1,000 your name, or the name of your congregation or business, or the name of someone you wish to honor or memorialize will be listed in the Program. You will also receive two free tickets to the staged reading event in Manhattan. This is an historic project and we believe that many of you will feel yourselves instructed by His Spirit to become a part of this great work for Zion's sake, as my Mother was, and will be blessed for it as she and my Father were.
Not everyone can become an Official Sponsor, but every gift is significant. For a donation of $100 to help blaze vital new trails for the Lord to the Jewish people in New York City with a showcase performance of "Rabboni" this September, we will send you a gift of a colorful 30-minute promotional video containing highlights from both of our award-winning musicals which are full of Jewish humor, Bible-based family entertainment and thrilling music. For a donation of $200, we will add "The Rabboni Pre-Broadway Cast Recording" which features Marty Goetz singing the 5 songs of Yeshua.
You will be able to donate or connect to PayPal, the most respected and widely used secure way to transfer money online. You may also mail a check to Jeremiah Ministries at PO Box 936127, Margate, FL 33093-6127. (Jeremiah Ministries is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation.) Also on our website, you can find out how to become an Official Sponsor or Investor by following the links to either Invest or Sponsor.
Be advised that this is not an investment offer. Investment is by Front Money Agreement or Limited Liability Company Operating Agreement only. (A Sample Front Money Agreement can be viewed on our website from the link on the "Invest" or "Sponsor" page.) Investing in theatrical productions involves a high degree of risk. We are accepting only 4 front money investors who can invest a minimum of $25,000.00. Front money is high risk capital that is used immediately for pre-production and production purposes. The front money investor receives double the net profits for his investment. Should you or your congregation or business be interested in investing, we would very much appreciate a phone call or email from you to discuss how you may obtain information concerning investment opportunities in these outstanding projects for the Kingdom in which you may be our valued partner in the presentation to the Jewish people of Yeshua, the Son of David, their eternal King and High Priest.
Please refer this letter to anyone who might be interested in participating in this unique theatrical outreach. Thank you and God bless you for helping!
Cordially, in Messiah Yeshua,
