Youth in grades 4-8 will enjoy a week of arts immersion camp, complete with field trips to local arts/theater venues, percussion ensemble and hand bell ensemble, and throughout the week prepare a musical based on the book of Esther from the Bible. Breakfast and lunch are served.
The daring, triumphant story of Esther is brought to vivid life in this new musical by composer Erik Whitehill. Through the story of Esther, travel to the citadel of Susa where King Ahasuerus names Esther his new queen—and where Esther faces the decision of her life. Will wicked Haman prevail? Or will selfless Mordecai convince Esther to trust in God and save her people?
With a nod to Broadway, Esther is filled with memorable melodies—from fun and whimsical reprises to expressive, heartfelt ballads.
