"Secrets" is the fourth full length show that R/U has put together over the years and is definitely the most powerful one yet! Because R/U is taking their transparency and vulnerability to the next level in creating this show that reveals their own past struggles, their audiences will be quickly drawn into their fears, their emotions and learn about how our loving and faithful God has redeemed them. The power within this show is the fact that we are battling the age old lie that 'we are alone', this is simply not TRUTH. We have a reason to celebrate, because our God has SAVED US, and these secrets, need to be shared so others can know that they also are NOT ALONE!
