The White Star — The Musical Sequel to Saturday’s Warrior

(Courtesy of Prime Recordings)

Book and Lyrics by Doug Stewart

Music by Janice Kapp Perry

Luke, a born-again convert lives next door to the now grown Jimmy Flinders, who by the end of “Saturday’s Warrior,” had found his way — literally and figuratively — back home. The ensuing years have not exactly been easy on him, and at the beginning of “White Star,” he is totally inactive in his faith. Now the father of four, he must still find his way back to the light. Luke is on a Quest. White Star is the story of a family in spiritual crisis, and a visit from an angel that awakens in a young man a quest to turn around his life, save his Father from an unspoken demon, and unite his family. Thorough drama, humor, and music, it is a story of how the pure love of Christ heals all.

Capsulated reviews:

Consensus: “The White Star” — Not To Be Missed!

“A Message of Faith, repentance and redemption. Warm and Reassuring dialogue and lyrics that are deep.  This show will play well in LDS venues… Could be used as a missionary tool!” — Rodger L. Hardy, Deseret News

“Uplifting! Sent Shivers down my spine. Ventures deeper than “Saturday’s Warrior.” If you’re looking for a family-friendly musical that promotes good values, “The White Star” is the answer to your prayers.” — Jessie Evans. Provo Daily Herald

Absolutely Wonderful! We loved every minute, and so did the rest of the crowd. The story, the music, the cast… it was all great. We laughed, we cried, and we laughed while we cried.” — Vanessa Godfrey, Letter to Editor, Deseret News

Outstanding! Carries a message of love and caring on opposite sides of the veil. Fast paced, entertaining, and chock full of great tunes. Audiences of all ages will love “The White Star.”” — Laurie Williams Sowby, MeridianMagazine.com

Amazing Spirit! Showed how both sides of the veil work together to bring those who are struggling to feel the Savior’s love. As “The White Star” begins to visit different areas of the church, you don’t want to miss out!” — Darrell Robinson, Deseret News

Stirring & Memorable! The Original and Sequel are cleverly woven together into a whole. There is humor… there are tears… A story of love and redemption, of the importance of family, and the necessity of both faith and hope in the atonement and in the Savior.” — Carma Wadley, Deseret News
