NorthRidge Church Production Goes Big On Easter

It is no secret that Easter Sunday is one of the most significant weekends of the year for houses of worship, and there are no pulling punches when it comes to production. With nearly 100 Martin Professional fixtures, an elaborate stage design, multiple automated elements, and a beefy SFX package, NorthRidge Church pulled out all stops for their 2022 celebration.

More than 10,000 attendees over five services (and three days!) flocked to the main campus of NorthRidge church for a massive Easter celebration in Plymouth, Michigan. You can check out the show below ⬇️ (skip to 01:27:00 and peep the 20' x 13' cross flying in).

The sketchbook separated to reveal the orchestra alongside a 13-minute orchestral suite named "The Prodigal Son Suite" for a dynamic beginning to the production.
