2000 Dove Award Nominee
Best Children's/Youth Musical
Featuring Precious Promises to Famous Followers of the Past 2000 Years
by Kathie Hill with Brian Best and Melody Morris
It's the annual "Cram 'n Jam" at Promise University - time to study for the big P2F2P2K exam, or "Precious Promises to Famous Followers of the Past 2000 Years!" Dee jay "Stan the Man" provides music for jammin' while student body president, Valerie Dictorian leads the crammin' as the P.U. students review God's promises to Paul, Martin Luther, Pocahontas, the Wesleys, Harriet Tubman and missionary Gladys Aylward. History and Literature professor Juan Zaponatime, sophomore wrestling champ, Marvelous Marty and Music teacher, Senora Doreme Fasolati are just some of the zany characters on the Promise U. campus who help to share God's promises through a variety of presentations and musical styles. Before the Cram 'n Jam closes, the kids realize that the greatest promise is "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved" and that God's promises are for all believers, whether they lived 2000 years ago or today!

Kathie’s Note: This musical is timeless in its introduction of Christian figures through history. From Paul’s conversion to the “real” story of Pocahontas to the “chill bump” moment of the video footage of Billy Graham (included in the Director’s Aide and Video) this musical is witty and winsome, ending with a strong salvation message. Promise U is another of my favorites, especially for involving older children or teens in your program.
