And The Rains Came — And Came — A Musical About Noah

Posted on Apr 20, 2017 in Musicals, Old Testament Stories

 A Musical Story of Noah Book and Lyrics by R. Rex Stephenson Music by Gary Evans (For production by Community Groups, High Schools, Middle Schools/Junior High Schools, Elementary Schools, Church Groups, Children’s Theatres/Youth Theatres) Rex originally wrote the play when the world was entering a new millennium. He thought that the story best typified the ‘new beginning’ that the world was facing; a story filled with both good and evil, trust and mistrust, obedience and disobedience, and with believing and disbelieving. But the appeal goes beyond any millennium and gets right down to what makes us tick. This Inter-generational Theatre Piece uses multi-age casting to achieve its objective: bringing its message to a broad, family audience. The score is fun and moves the show along. Also included in the evening are moments of great poignancy, such as the surprise...

Stones — A Play

Posted on May 21, 2013 in Award Winners, Classics, New Testament Stories, Old Testament Stories, Plays

by J. Scott Bronson ALTARS — 2M1W. Open Setting TOMBS — 2M 1W. Open Setting. Time for each: Just under an hour. (For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, LDS Church Groups, Youth Theatres) STONES is the recipient of the 2001 Award for Drama from the Association for Mormon Letters. “STONES is a perfect example of the three keys to playwrighting: Story, Character, Dialogue. Both acts thousands of years apart in real time, appear outwardly to tell two different stories. But the similarities in the themes of faith and family reach across the years to bind the play into one coherent story that is relevant today and will always be as long as humans walk the Earth.” ALTARS is the story of Abraham, Isaac and Sarai. TOMBS is the story of Mary, Jesus and Joseph....
