Esther Postcard Front









Musical Comedy - "Esther"

Friday & Saturday, January 26 & 27, 7 pm
Sunday, January 28, 4 pm

While First Baptist Church's drama ministry typically does a Christmas production, this year we're trying something a little different. We hope you'll join us at FBC in January for an original musical with music and lyrics by Martin Landry/Book & lyrics by Janice Landy.

"Esther" tells the story of an orphaned Jewish girl who becomes Queen of Persia, and discovers that her people are to be annihilated by royal decree.  She is forced to trust God through frightening circumstances, with the survival of her entire race seemingly on her shoulders.

Admission is free; a freewill offering will be taken to help offset production costs.
