Latter-day Ruth — The Musical

LDR Color LogoBook and Lyrics by Doug Stewart

Music by Steve Amundsen

The Biblical story of Ruth has long held important and essential principles for the conduct of men and women as Believers in Christ. Doug and Steve have transposed this classic story to the modern day where Ruth stands at the center of a loving family. The parallels are uncannily drawn between the era of Ruth in the Bible and her modern day counterpart. It is an inspirational journey for cast and audience as Ruth and Beau and family find their way together.
