Noah, The Musical

One night last week, several of us workampers went to see "Noah, The Musical."

In January 1993, Sight and Sound Theater's founder and producer Glenn Eshelman attended the Pennsylvania farm show.  For over a month he had sought the Lord's direction for a new show to produce at Sight and Sound. As he stood amongst the dairy cows, he watched the thousands of people drawn to the animals -- families and children.  In that moment, Glenn felt the Lord speak to his heart, telling him to do a show on Noah.  Glenn's prayer had been answered.  In June 1995, "Noah, The Musical" premiered.
We all enjoyed Noah but thought it was a bit long.  The seating was very tight and at Intermission we talked about leaving, but since we had paid for it, we decided to see it through to the end.  And we were glad we did.  As Act 2 began, the interior of the Ark was revealed -- and the audience then felt as though they too were in the Ark with Noah, his family and all the animals.  There were over 65 live animals that performed in Noah, in addition to over 100 animatronic animals and 6 "actor animated" animals.

Unfortunately, no photography was allowed.  This is the last season for Noah in Branson.  It will be replaced with "Joseph."

I'm sure kids would really like seeing all the animals -- real,  animated or otherwise.  

We are settling into our jobs and learning just what it means to be a  "workamper" -- now if we can just remember it all:)  I am learning Campground Master, the reservation software used by most commercial campgrounds.

I am still experiencing some problems with Blogger -- sometimes it works okay, sometimes not...maybe it's me.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you're in our area, please stop by and see us.  In the meantime, God bless you, one and all!
