Jacob's Follies, March 2018Posted: 11/28/2017
First Presbyterian is thrilled to announce Jacob’s Follies, a musical play by Terry Byars, coming to the stage March 16, 17 and 18. Recounting the fortunes of the Biblical Jacob (whose name means “deceiver”), this bold, bright musical will delight audiences from 5 to 95! Framed in high comedy, the show brings all the significant events of Jacob’s journey to life: from his stealing Esau’s birthright early on to his ultimate encounter with God and the revelation that he will— incredibly—become the “father of many nations!” Woven into the story are all the larger-than-life, quirky and eccentric characters Jacob meets along the way. With music to touch the heart and a message of ultimate forgiveness, we pray that through Jacob, you will sense the love of God and his undying desire to bless if we’ll but ask!
Tryouts for Jacob’s Follies will be January 13 and 14, 2018. Cast of 30 needed. Ages 12 and older.
