Sonshine is now in its 39th year of producing contemporary musical dramas.

This year's cast will be working hard preparing a June tour of our original musical Chains. We're actively seeking performers & performance locations, and would love to bring Sonshine to your city! 

We believe that God’s word comes alive through the dramatization of Biblical stories. Audiences from churches all across Ohio and surrounding states have been thrilled by Sonshine’s exciting presentations. We also believe that our cast members grow spiritually as people of faith as they use their talents to glorify their Creator.

Our church has been enhanced exponentially because of the participation of our youth, and the congregation annually looks forward to supporting the productions. I highly recommend Sonshine Productions for the professional caliber production, for their professionalism, and for their desire to share the message of God’s amazing, transforming love with all who will hear. This is a ministry you want to be a part of!
