With their tight harmonies and spectacular choreography, the Altar Boyz delight their audience. Performing a full set, including their signature hits “Rhythm In Me,” “The Calling” and “I Believe,” the Boyz question their loyalty to each other and ask whether or not faith is really holding them together. In the end, they deliver a message of unity: “there is no star as bright as its constellation, no harmony in a single voice.”

"ALTAR BOYZ is a moving experience, one sure to attract new congregants to the Church of Musical Theatre."

Sandy MacDonald

“Hilarious! This Sweet and sassy, witty and completely unpretentious show sends everybody out on a cloud of mirth – and we mean everybody! There’s not a soul in the theatre that isn’t captured. Finally, a show to unite the country!”
