"Wise Guys and Starry Skies" is a classic, fun children's musical.

Kathie's Note: I so love this musical. It is simple to produce, yet looks “rich” onstage. The characters are funny, without compromising the message or the scripture included throughout. Incorporate teens or adults in the cast or all parts can be performed by kids - and the chorus kids love having special parts as either wise guys, cooks or camel boys. (Track has really pretty string parts, too!)
