How fun to see a photo from a past production of mine on your photo gallery! I'll be sending more, as I'm producing this show for the 3rd time in my 17 years at this church, and did it a 4th time at another church before moving here!
It is one of MY, the KIDS' and the PARENTS' all - time favorite musicals! I am always surprised by the number of people who find out we're doing it again (about every 5 years) and instead of saying "can't you do something new?" they get SO excited! Kids who were in it as 4th & 5th graders who are now in H.S. LOVE seeing it again and singing along from the pews! :-) The music is engaging and fun, the message lends itself to so much great teaching about how we treat outcasts, not judging people, respecting our elders, and God's unconditional love - -it's always relevant, timely and meaningful. We are in St. Louis (RAMS country!) - so we got permission to use the RAMS logo & colors, and even got Kurt Warner to sign a shirt for us the year the Rams won the SuperBowl and we happened to be doing this show! Now THAT was an exciting way to entice BOYS into choir! Thanks Kathie for a GREAT musical!!
