The team behind Christian musical Love Beyond have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise £400,000 to enable the production to tour the UK …

Here they explain the vision:

"Last year, Love Beyond the Musical took the good news of the Christian faith to Wembley Arena. This new musical has now been given a unique opportunity to tour the UK and take this story to 100,000 people in theatres up and down the country. Powerful and uplifting, the new musical Love Beyond is a unique presentation of the greatest love story ever told, unfolding the entire story of the Bible as never before.
 
"And now we need your help. If the gospel must be 'preached to all nations', we want to get this show on the road!
 
"We ask if you could like our Facebook page and share our posts.
 
"We’d also be so grateful if you could tweet your support @LoveBeyondUK.
 
"We need our voice to be heard, and with your assistance, we can shout it from the stage of theatres all over the country.
 
"As you may know, the Love Beyond Musical team kicked off a crowd funding campaign on 10 June to raise the finance to take the show around the country and to spread the Love Beyond word. The campaign runs until the 10 July and you can find the information here.
 
"For every financial pledge from backers, there is a reward – from music downloads, through to theatre tickets and even ‘theatre masterclasses’ – including with co-composer Tabitha Webb, a former ‘Christine’ in The Phantom of the Opera in London.

"However, without the financial backing, this opportunity may not happen.
 
"This big production has wowed over 11,000 people with its 'one-off' Arena shows at the Brighton Centre in 2013 and Wembley Arena in 2014, cast with a host of West End musical theatre stars. A contemporary production, this epic musical re-tells the overarching story at the heart of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
 
"Love Beyond is a product of faith and 15 years of writing, composing and development, perfectly honed and ready to tour, initially across the UK before heading to the USA and other parts the world. Musically demanding, emotionally engaging, and theologically endorsed by church leaders, the show is unique.

"All funding to date has been personally raised by the team – giving up careers, selling houses and using savings to the tune of approximately £1.5m. A further £400,000 is needed to develop a tour. The feedback and support received from the 11,000 plus people who have seen the show has been incredible and the requests to visit other parts of the country are innumerable.
 
"The Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford says 'At the heart of the Christian faith is the story of God’s love for us in Christ. A love beyond imagining, but also a love that is very close. Most people in Britain today have never really heard this story. Love Beyond is a challenging, moving and accessible way of encountering the greatest love story there is.'"
