Chasing Lights: A Christmas Musical

December 14–17 | Gateway Church

Last year’s debut of Chasing Lights delighted and warmed the hearts of more than 45,000 people who experienced it live at Gateway Church. This year, Chasing Lights returns … bigger and better than ever!

Whether you’re seeing the musical for the first time or returning to watch it again with your friends and family, you’ll love this revamped staging of Chasing Lights with new characters, fresh song parodies, and dazzling scenic elements.

Chasing Lights tells the story of Chase Adams, an ambitious go-getter making his mark in show business. As he’s looking for one big idea that will land his name in lights, he stumbles into the “Theatre of Life,” a mysterious and wonderful place where what you believe is played out on stage. With the help of a newfound friend named Gil, Chase embarks on a whirlwind journey of song and dance that helps him discover the heart of Christmas.

Filled with the most beloved melodies of film and stage, this show will make you laugh, stir your heart, and leave you wanting more!

We’re also excited to offer an enhanced theatre experience for your kids (birth through fourth grade)! They’ll get to see a “kid-customized” broadcast of the musical complete with in-person appearances of fun characters from the show. They’ll enjoy photo ops with characters and fun activities during showtimes at all of our campuses. Your kids are sure to love it! (Registration for the kids experience is not required.)

Available Beginning Monday, December 4
Seat reservations are first-come, first-served. There is a limit of six (6) seat reservations per email address. Please plan to arrive 30 minutes before showtime.
