A Kids' Musical for Such a Time as This
written and Created by Kathie Hill

In the musical, a fictional scribe, Zerox, details Esther becoming queen through God's intervention in Haman's plot and Mordecai's appointment as the king's adviser. And, as Zerox tells the story, he experiences the testimony of Esther and develops his own faith in God and His grace. All this is done through gritty songs and witty dialogue between these characters and the residents of Susa, the "Susans." Songs like "God Is in Control," "The Eleventh Hour," "While You Sleep" and "In That Moment," will help children understand the sovereignty of God and the confidence we can have in trusting Him with the greatest of problems by displaying our own Esther-Ordinary Faith!

Kathie's Note: Excellence requires work and this is a great musical if you will give it your best. The storyline requires stage movement for the characters which create a biblically entertaining and thought-provoking work. I love the Zerox and King characters and my favorite songs are “God is in Control”, “The Eleventh Hour’ and “While You Sleep.”
