Performance Details



Yes! Arise Collective is a 501(c)(3) organization recognized as a public charity, and is registered as a Michigan nonprofit organization.  We accept donations for performances.

The simple answer is, “by faith.” That said, we will be placing a donation box in the lobby so that anyone desiring to donate towards Arise Collective will have the opportunity. Donations can also be made online through the “Donate” button at the top of the website.

Yes, it is family friendly and appropriate for all ages. It is a lively, life-giving, faith-based, production that young and old will undoubtedly enjoy and be impacted by.  There is one scene in the first act that might be a challenge for younger viewers to watch that depicts a battle between good and evil.  It is intense, but also brief, so please consider this when making your decision to bring the young ones.

This event is free of charge, but tickets must be reserved in advance.

The production is about 2.5 hours in length, divided into two acts, with an intermission.

Arise Collective is based in Michigan and will be offering performances in the future, locally and elsewhere.  Stay tuned to our website and social media for more info. We are also open to bringing this production wherever there is a strong desire for it, so please get in touch with us if you would like Pilgrim to be performed in your region.

Yes. If performances begin to fill up, we are prepared to add additional shows if necessary. Our desire is that everyone who wants to experience this exciting production will have the opportunity.
