PRINCETON — The Princeton Bible Church Choir will present the widely acclaimed musical, “The Story,” at 10:15 a.m. on Palm Sunday, April 13, and at 7 p.m. on Good Friday, April 18, in the Princeton Bible Church sanctuary.
Many may have read the book, engaged in the Bible study or seen the star-studded concert by the same name, and this choral musical has been adapted from those pieces with narrations written by Max Lucado. “The Story” presents the Bible in a chronological, novel format, detailing God’s redemptive plan for His people from Genesis to Revelation.
After the portrayal of Creation and the Fall in the Garden of Eden, the narrative moves on to Abraham and Sarah, played by Tom and Bev Odell, singing “Who But You.” Shepherd boy turned King David will be played by Thomas Cook as the choir sings, “Your Heart.” The birth of Christ is sung by Gwen Holmes Roseberg in “Be Born in Me” as she plays the part of Mary the young mother of Jesus. The ministry of Jesus is depicted in “When Love Sees You,” and his death is recounted in “How Love Wins,” sung by Rob Jensen as the believing thief on the cross. Mary Magdalene, played by Katie McCoy, celebrates Christ’s resurrection in “Alive,” and the choir looks forward to “The Great Day” of Christ’s return as King of Kings. Compelling narrations move the story along by the host, Tom Odell, and readers Erika Turner, Rob Jensen and Christina Eggers. The production is directed by Marty Kiser.
The public is invited to view the performances and be stirred in their hearts in preparation for the Easter season. Admission is free. The Princeton Bible Church is located two and one-half miles northeast of Princeton on Route 34.
