Here are dramatic pictures of my Branson stage production of Isle of Dreams which ran for 2 and a half years successfully. It was written by myself and Robert White Johnson of Nashville. Isle of Dreams is a rock gospel opera about the life and times of John the Revelator, and has thrilled audiences from New York to St. Louis and beyond!
John the Revelator
Michael J. O'Hara is also known in religious circles as Rev. Michael J. O'Hara; having pastored and ministered and performed in well over 200 churches in his time. He has published his first two books entitled- CHURCH! andThe Little Minister pt. 1 available on Amazon.com and Barnes & Nobles.com. He has also ministered in more than 89 medical facilities monthly in Texas for nine years while pastoring in one of them! He has ministered in prisons in Missouri and Illinois for more than 5 years! He co-wrote/co-produced a biblically based Gospel/Rock/Opera called- "Isle of Dreams" based on The Book of Revelatio with Nashville's own legendary writer/producer- Robert White Johnson which eventually ran for almost 3 years on the Branson stages where countless hundreds of visitors from around the nation were blessed!
Currently, (Rev. O'Hara) having moved back to New Orleans, has begun ministering in some of the medical facilities around the area while ministering at St. James COGIC on the Sundays when he's not performing elsewhere! (View pictures of Isle of Dreams below!)
