The life and times of Judah Ben-Hur, whose extraordinary journey takes him from wealthy merchant to galley slave to champion charioteer and witness at the Crucifixion, will be recreated by the people of Bath in one of the most astonishing productions ever staged at the Theatre Royal. Originally published as a novel in 1880 by American General and author, Lew Wallace, it was William Wyler's 1959 film which starred Charlton Heston in the title role, and won no less than 11 Academy Awards, which really caught the public's imagination. Now this monumental tour-de-force will be staged in the glorious arena of the newly-restored Theatre Royal Main House. A cast of more than 300 of your relatives, friends and neighbours will be working alongside a professional production team to create one of the most visually exciting and theatrically impressive productions your family is ever likely to see, an epic in every sense.
