24 Hour Musical
What is a 24 Hour Musical, you ask? It is a crazy idea to produce, cast, and put on a Broadway-style theater musical in only 24 hours! How can this possibly be done, you ask? Students (ages 8 to 19) rehearse for 4 consecutive Saturdays of 6 hours each, for a total of 24 hours. On the last Saturday the kids perform the show, free to the public.
This year’s 24 Hour Musical will include some favorite songs from The Prince of Egypt — and other musicals, as well. The cast will act, sing, and dance as these powerful selections refresh and encourage you! “Deliver Us” was the cry of the people of Israel. The agony of being miserably enslaved in Egypt for 400 years drove them to lift their eyes toward heaven and earnestly call out to God for rescue. God answered their pleas with His miraculous display of power. God is still at work sovereignly carrying out His loving plan in our world, despite the treacherous evil of our day. He is the one and only King of Kings ruling in power and wisdom. The future is quite bright! The Mighty God of all hope has everything well in hand! Come see this story as told through acting, singing, and dancing.
Our version of 24 Hour Musical also adds another twist. These productions are a fundraiser for Living Water International (http://water.cc). NYT casts, over the last few years, have raised funds to build wells in Guatemala and India. This year’s goal is to raise $5,000 for a another well in India. Any amount raised above this will go to Redeemed MInistries, a Houston group that is working to rescue those enslaved through human trafficking. Cast members are encouraged to raise pledges or donations for each hour they rehearse. A love offering will also be taken the night of the performance. Or, if you prefer, you may make a donation by clicking the “Donate” button below. 100% of the proceeds collected will go to these charities.
This year’s performance will be at Northwest Bible Church in Spring on May 20th at 5:00 p.m. (doors open at 4:45 p.m.). The show is free to the public.
