Feature Length Productions

Titus, A Comrade of the Cross

This fabulous audio drama tells the story of the crucifixion from a very interesting perspective. It is powerfully moving and is well worth your time. One of the best reenactments of the crucifixion scene ever produced.

You Are There: Easter
Lamplighter Theatre

Originally produced by Grace Jordan and released under the Perfect Sound Production brand in 1982, the You Are There series is now under the Lamplighter Theatre umbrella. This 80-minute classic audio drama of the events surrounding Christ's passion are still quite well-produced with great acting.

Easter Story
Word of Promise

While not an audio drama in the strictest sense of the term, this does have the major elements; a full cast, musical score and sound effects. But since it is a narration of the text of Scripture it is not an audio drama script. This program combines the story of Jesus' crucifixion as told by each of the Gospels, into a single chronological narrative which is read by a full cast.
Purchase on Amazon


The Life of Jesus (The Luke Reports)
Focus on the Family Radio Theatre

This amazing audio drama chronicles the entire life of Jesus as told by the physician Luke, who wrote the Gospel which bears his name. A phenomenal series that runs several hours long, this production is sure to be a favorite.

The Twelve Voices of Easter
Back to the Bible

Produced in the same style as their 12 Voices of Christmas, this series of monologues from Back to the Bible tells the story of Easter through a first-person perspective from the people who witnessed them, such as Judas, Pilate, Peter, and the thief on the cross. Though not quite audio drama, these are well-written accounts that add a “realness” to the story that helps bring it to life.
