Mystery is a thrilling, thought-provoking and moving global “treasure hunt” like nothing in the world. This contemporary musical full of plot-twists and unexpected turns reveals how the message of wonder and grace are key to unlocking the hidden treasure!!  “Don’t forget your digging shoes.”
Mystery is the story of one family’s search for buried treasure somewhere in Eastern Europe. Through experiences of tragedy and loss over the years, they are driven to all extremes to find this treasure. But…history has secrets and many riddles must be solved. Along the way, the colorful characters in this story must face their enemies and the evils of this world, while grappling with important issues of life. In the end, their discovery becomes a matter of life and death.  Influenced by the works and lives of C.S. Lewis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ravi Zacharias, J.F. Baldwin, G.K. Chesterton, Bram Stoker and more. 

Lights Up produces original, highly professional and entertaining musical theater from a Christian worldview.

“Brent, we had a wonderful evening and the show was GREAT…great twists… and I have to say, in my opinion, the strongest collection of songs to date.” – Geno Mulcahy (Veteran Sound Engineer)

“I enjoyed the musical immensely and was especially touched by the perspective on pain and suffering, and the impact on innocence. Brent answers questions that so many atheists and angry people have. I loved the way the story weaves together the young boy with the adult version of himself and the impact of pain on his life. Free-will brings pain and suffering but it also brings grace. You can’t have grace without free will – Powerful message.” – Karen

“I especially appreciated the professional quality of the script, the singing, and the acting. The plot was well-developed and the message clearly presented. I would travel 1200 miles to see it again”  – Vernon

“Loved the cinematic’s and was surprised by the professionalism and the
venue” – Loomis High School student

“Best Grosvenor production to date…by far my favorite!! All his shows are outstanding and I can’t wait for the next one.” – Audrey

“My wife and I were SO impressed by “Mystery.” It was always interesting, very professionally mounted, acted, and sung – and it was also very moving, touching on a number of “mysteries” of life and death. You did a terrific job – just as one would expect!”

Mystery was dramatic, high energy and truly made the audience think about the meaning of life. I continue to be thoroughly impressed with the talents of the cast and crew of Lights up Productions. Mystery in particular is a must see!” – Stacy

“Absolutely amazing production…hitting real life issues..songs were catchy..and touching..cast was beyond talented and really flowed together..I laughed..I cried… I had goosebumps..but most of all I heard the message that GOD needed me to hear..Thank you for the invite! – Nyree

“Mystery is new, innovative, exciting, and impactful! As always, the set, lighting, acting, and writing was all done with excellence. In the writing, Brent does not leave one detail unattended, which makes for 2.5 hours of deep, rich content, with entertaining and thought-provoking performances. It is clearly a culmination of years of study and careful crafting. This show responds to, and refutes the challenging questions of “logical” academia with Biblical truth and fact in a relevant way. This is most needed and necessary today.” – Amy

“This show is a fast-paced musical that asks the age-old questions about faith. It is technologically remarkable…the music is moving and riveting and the performances are strong! Mystery packs a powerful punch!” – Michael Lamb (Director/Producer/Entertainer and veteran in the business)
