Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace





This musical conveys the emotional story behind the revered Christian hymn and the man who penned it - Englishman John Newton.


Story:

Englishman John Newton looks forward into an uncertain future - on one hand feeling destined to join his father in the ranks of slave traders, on the other feeling personally inspired to embrace the more compassionate views of his childhood sweetheart. A violent storm at sea terrifies John and becomes the inspiration for the song which will become an anthem for people around the world for centuries to come - and change the life of the man himself.
