According to Michael Niederer, the lead actor in the movie "Samson" currently playing at the Sight & Sound Theater at Lancaster County, PA, the main theme that the story of Samson is centered on is that of grace.
"Jeff, the director, writer and producer of the show likes to say that [the production] is for the wayward and weary, but the biggest most important message of the show is about grace and God's grace for us," he said in an interview with The Christian Post.
"We are all sinners!" he continued. "None of us are perfect, the only perfect person ever was Jesus. We are all messed up, we all have our problems that we deal with, but God's grace is always there for us no matter what we do, no matter who we are, no matter where we go, it's always there."
"It's amazing because I've been able to use the gifts He gave me for His glory and for His benefit," Niederer said of his experience acting for the movie.
The Sight & Sound's theatre can host 22,000 people per week, and does over 400 shows annually.
Niederer said that the prospect of reaching out to 4,000 to 6,000 people a day through the story of "Samson" gives him motivation to do the role, which is same day after day.
"Even if we get one person to get to know God, we've done our job for that day," he said.
"It's important to note that Samson's strength came from God, it didn't come from his muscles. It came from the power of the Lord just moving in him and using Samson as a vessel essentially to deliver his people from the Philistines," he said.
The 26-year-old actor was born and raised in a Christian family, and was doing theater since he was a child.
The show will be running Sight & Sound between April 9 and 30, and features an interactive stage to tell biblical accounts.
