Posted on Jun 18, 2018 in Demo CDs & Cast Albums

Book & Lyrics by Heather Young Music by Lex De Azevedo © Deseret Book Company, Licensed here exclusively, by permission Long a favorite of those who saw the original touring production, this show delivers big on music and entertainment value, while providing essential ideas and concepts for living a Christ-Centered life.   Approaching her 16th birthday, Debbie is unsettled and unsure – about everything.

Book and Lyrics by Carol Lynn Pearson Music by Lex De Azevedo The Original Brigham Young University production from 1971, now available on CD for the first time. The tale of Orderville, Utah, 1875-1885, where over 700 Saints lived and worked and played and prayed together in the United Order, a version of the Law of Consecration, seeking Zion, learning tolerance and patience, expanding love towards charity. We see our own foibles and failings in those of the residents of Orderville as they learn the hard lessons of sharing, giving, getting along, and wondering how can I love my neighbor even when I can’t even stand him and after all I work harder than he does and my skilled work is worth more than his lowly weed-pulling.

A.J.’s Miracle — Original Cast Recording CD

Posted on Feb 16, 2015 in Demo CDs & Cast Albums

by Mark Ogden A Missionary story you will never forget! A.J.’s Miracle is meant to show the human side of missionaries. The show is based on the true incidents of the author as he served his mission. The story begins with a bet: $500 that AJ cannot fulfill an LDS Mission. The story follows his reluctant progress as he is sent to serve in Mexico. It is said that a mission is the best kept secret in the Church. Unless you go you have no idea what it is really like.

Posted on Feb 8, 2014 in Demo CDs & Cast Albums

A Patriotic Musical Celebration Book and Lyrics by Michael McLean and Margaret Smoot Music by K. Newell Dayley A fantastic journey through the minds of the founding fathers and how the citizens of today perceive them. Two “generic” founding fathers, Patrick and James, travel to modern day to show people what it was like to write the Constitution, and how important it’s principles are. The two characters replay the key dramas of the Constitutional Convention and then in a more lighthearted mood, decide how to use the tools of contemporary life, i.e., advertizing and television to get their message across to the American People.
