Teenage Witness to the Martyrdom — A Play with Songs

TEENWITNESSlogoA play with music by C. Michael Perry

(For production by  Community Groups, LDS Church Groups, Youth Theatres)

Jason Chamberlin is a 14 year old boy who is struggling to forget the recent death of his father by mob action against the Saints of Missouri. He and his Mother, sisters and brother now live in Nauvoo where the hatred of the Mormons is again beginning to rear it’s ugly head. He is also struggling with his testimony and his basic belief in God. Through the help of his family and Joseph Smith he sees that he isn’t the only one who is suffering. He has always worshiped Joseph almost like he worshiped his father. His father and Joseph were friends. Soon, he finds himself present as the mob massacres Joseph and Hyrum Smith at Carthage Jail. And out of this great tragedy, Jason again finds and strengthens his testimony.

There is one instance of mild profanity that can be edited.
