Fathom Events presents the musical feature film Easter Mysteries, the retelling of the Passion of Christ which is the last
twelve hours of his life and his resurrection. Easter Mysteries will arrive in theaters for one day only Tuesday, March 22,
2016 at 7 p.m. in 300 selected theaters across the country through Digital Broadcast Network. Easter Mysteries star Wallace

Top Five) as Caiaphas.
"I was not apprehensive in the least," said Three-time Tony Award winning producer Ron Simons (Blue Caprice)

personally...he was a human being that had to make some tough decisions."
The music and lyrics to the musical feature film,
Easter Mysteries, was written by Tony Award winning Broadway producer John O'Boyle. The prolific Easter story also stars
Stephen Lee Anderson as Herod; Erin David as Mary Magdalene; Kevin Earley as Peter; Benjamin
Howes as Thomas; P.J. Griffith as Judas and Michael X. Martin as Pilate.
