Religious Drama(January 26, 1947 – December 30, 1956)
The Greatest Story Ever Told is a religious dramatization about the life and times of Christ. It is "the greatest story ever told from the greatest life ever lived, and includes a 16-voice chorus and full orchestra. The stories chosen were ssimplistic and popular. It was the first show to star Jesus Christ, and have him as a continuing character. So the directors decided to have Warren Parker play the part of Jesus in anonymity, with no casting credits. They also decided that there were to be no photographs of the performers, no studio audience, and no commercials. Guided by an interdenominational advisory board, this timeless show was very popular in its day.
