The Lincoln County High School Choral Department will be presenting the fully staged musical “Children’s Letters to God” on Oct. 22-24 at the Adnia Rice Theatre at Lincoln County High School.
Based on the international bestselling book by Stuart Hample, “Children’s Letters to God” follows the lives of five young friends as they express their desires and doubts as only children can. Among the issues raised in the show’s 16 songs are the loss of a beloved pet, divorce and sibling rivalry, among many more.
As in the book, the musical is not specifically religious – but it embraces the universal thoughts and questions of childhood.
“Dear God, Are you really invisible or is that just a trick?” “Dear God, how come you did all the miracles in the old days and don’t do any now?” These are just some of many amusing and heartfelt questions raised by the cast of five Lincoln County High School students.
The cast is made up of Cole Bussell, Blaire Durham, Alex Edwards, Logan Hardiman and Abigail Satterfield. Barry Petty is directing his second musical at LCHS.
The cast will be presenting three shows for the LCHS feeder schools and will have public performances at 7 p.m. Oct. 22, and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Oct. 23, with the final show being presented at 2 p.m. Oct. 24.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. Tickets are available at Bagley & Bagley Insurance, Carter’s Drugs, Bank of Lincoln County and at the door. A special $5 price is available for church groups of 10 or more.
