I saw it and it is an amazing place!
It is grand, inspiring, majestic ... and sits in the most unlikely place. Nestled in a crescent, just below the caprock edge two miles north of Post, is a brand new theater called Ragtown Gospel Theater and when you enter ... you enter the Holy Land surrounded by the architecture of Jerusalem on all the walls featuring stonework, columns, arches, murals, and angels. This is the setting for what will be ongoing gospel music performances as well as a series of plays depicting individuals who had direct contact with Jesus when he walked on the earth. "Peter the Rock", which begins this weekend, features professional actor Glenn Polk. Inspiration is only a short drive away from Lubbock and something you must see first hand. Show begins this weekend and continues for 13 weeks.

Tickets are $21. Performances are every Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and a Sunday Matinee at 2:30. Click here to see this amazing place!
