This Year's Musical...

This year's script for our Bible Action musical is done. The music was pretty much picked by December and the rough outline of the play was in my file before Christmas. I began working on the script between "normal" work loads the first week of January, and it didn't take too long to finish it - about a week and a half. Since then, I've been writing the new lyrics and making changes in the script as I thought about new things. Erika, our church secretary, has done a marvelous job of helping me get recordings of the songs for the master practice CD, and finding sheet music for each of the twenty-three songs which are spread over the three act play. We still need to do some work on some of the instrumental tracks we need, but that will be "a work in progress" for several weeks - and as we need to change things. Anyway, it's done and I will be introducing the play, to all those interested, right after our morning assembly time this Sunday. After the church family has seen the new logo, I will post it on this blog next week.
This will be our sixth musical and it will be very different - in many ways. The biggest difference is that it will not be a Bible times play. It will be a Bible story, but it will be told in a different period of history. Yes, that means all our Bible times costumes won't work this year. If you are a regular reader of this blog, please accept this as a personal invitation, from me to you, to come and see our musical. It's always the first full weekend of June, so that means this year it's June 2, 3, 4, & 5. That's four performances with the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows at 7:00 P.M. and the Sunday evening show at 6:00 P.M. (for all those folks who want to skip their Sunday night services).
Check back on Monday, at the latest, and see what the show will be this year, and to see this year's logo for the play. Grand kids will get to see what this year's T-shirts are going to look like.
