This winner of the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for outstanding Best Off-Broadway Musical is a foot-stomping, rafter-raising, musical comedy about a fictitious Christian boy-band on the last night of their national 'Raise the Praise' tour. "Altar Boyz" will be performed by K and E Theatre Group.    

The Boyz are five all-singing, all-dancing heartthrobs from Ohio: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham. With their tight harmonies and spectacular choreography, the troupe will delight  audiences. As they perform their signature hits such as 'Rhythm In Me,' 'The Calling,' and 'I Believe,' the Boyz question their loyalty to each other and ask whether or not faith is really holding them together.

Full of sharp parody, sinful dancing and irreverent humor, the musical brings an extraordinary mix of side-splitting songs, uncontrollable laughs and light-hearted fun, this award-winning and totally original musical is 9minutes of heavenly delight that is destined to rock the masses of all denominations!

The Boyz raising the praise are Dante Woods as Matthew, Michael DeVito as Mark, David Webber as Luke, Michael Luciano as Juan, and Christopher Marcus as Abraham. Bill Martin is the musical director. K and E Theater Group Artistic Director Eddie Zitka is director and choreographer.

Tickets are general admission for $27.00. There is no reserved seating.
