Second Coming: The Rock Musical opens at the scene of the Tomb, with Lucifer gloating over his recently-won victory. It follows the story of Jesus and His disciples from the resurrection and ascension to His glorious second coming and the final battle that ensues. Peter, John, and the other disciples undergo persecution for their Lord, received the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, and struggle to establish the church on earth. Meanwhile, in the spiritual realm, another sort of battle is underway for the souls of men and the future of the world.
This is a rock musical about fighting for what is right. It’s about the war that will come at the end of the age, and also the war inside of each of us that we fight every day.
The Story Behind the Story
Stan Eure is the larger-than-life visionary behind Second Coming: The Musical. His big personality and love for the Lord echo throughout this exciting show. Stan studied classical piano for seven years and has a BS degree from East Carolina University where he enjoyed playing football for the Pirates. He is convinced that the songs and script he has developed for Second Coming were divinely inspired. Stan is retired from Eure, Inc., the successful company he built, based in Chesapeake, VA.
“Second Coming the Rock Musical started out with one prayer request. ‘Lord, please help me write one song.’ Within two weeks, I had received over ten songs. The songs led me to scenes in the Bible that told the story of the Second Coming of Christ. My son, Jason took my outline and wrote the script while my daughter Lindsay, an equity performer, and my wife Jan served as the panel of judges for encouragement and counsel.
After I had over twenty songs in memory, Phil Hall from New York City was selected to transcribe the music note for note. Now it was time to find an arranger who could catch the vision with a Rock musical sound. Robert Solberg from Nashville, TN would become the principal arranger, bringing a unique blend of big rock guitars, sophisticated orchestral arrangements, and authentic Middle Eastern musical flavors.
I introduced the music to Rocco and Kathi-Lee Wilson, co-founders of Theatrix Productions, over twenty years ago. After producing 75 shows, they took on the task of producing Second Coming: The Rock Musical. I believe this show will minister to the nations and look forward to seeing you at opening night in the fall of 2021.”
