Spring Musical for K-5th Graders

Presenting “For Goodness Sake” with words and music by Cynthia Wright.  This sweet, fun children’s musical retells the familiar lessons of the Ten Commandments through music and drama.  The show is set on a typical Sunday morning with a family rushing to get to church.  During their car trip to church, they listen to a radio program interpreting each commandment as a song performed by choir.


REHEARSALS – Wednesdays, 7pm-8pm, 4/3 – 5/1
Participation in at least four Wednesday evenings is encouraged so children can learn their music and parts.

PERFORMANCE – Sunday, May 5th

COST – FREE for all First Pres family, friends and the community!
